Just in case you think that my representation of Nikola Tesla in Goliath was over the top, you need to see his letterhead:
Yes. He was THAT cool.
The image in the upper right of the letterhead is one of the remote control boats with which Tesla tries to repel the German walker attack in Chapter 39 of Goliath. They were totally real!
In case you’ve forgotten, here’s Keith Thompson’s version:
Of course, the central image in the letterhead is Wardenclyffe Tower, as it was to have appeared had it ever been completed. Note that Keith and I cheated a bit to make it more spectacular:
But as you can tell from the letterhead, it was pretty awesome anyway.
So keep this image on your phone or whatever, so that if you ever get transported back to the early 1900s, you can get in touch with Tesla. (As you can see, his phone number is “8080 Bryant.” I’m not sure how you dial that.)
And while we’re on the subject of mad scientists, I’ll take the opportunity to reveal my new author photo:
Photo from Moonie Baloonie. It no doubt took all day in Photoshop to get my eyes that red. Appreciate it!

Tesla’s letterhead is totally awesome. Too bad Tesla didn’t succeed in his efforts too much. Moonie Baloonie! Ha! What a name.
The Tesla stuff was super-cool. Was he the spoiler you had to remove in the Goliath word cloud?

I want to see The Hunger Games movie scott. I heard the book was awsome but your still my favorite author. I love all your books they have a bunch of action!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I meant you should see it.LOL
Actually, it probably took maybe ten minutes or so- lasso tool, then copy and paste. Convert the new layer to a black and white, then new layer, add some red with a brush tool, duplicate, then set the first layer to soft light, the next to hard light, then fade them a bit. Make a clipping mask, merge the red layers and the black and white eye, then merge with the background. In total, maybe about five, seven minutes? :/
Whenever i have red eyes, it is mostly caused by irritation. It is a good idea to clean your eyes regulary. ^
