The Afterman is the third painting of the Afterman: Ascension works that I created with Claudio Sanchez for the epic double album by Coheed and Cambria. We talked daily between studio sessions about the ideas and sketches, then eventually settled on a final idea and then I started the painting, never having heard the songs.

This was the title track, so we took a little time talking about how it fit in with the concept - essentially Claudio explained that the image needed to portray the man in the space suit being connected to his love on the other side. So I worked out a few ideas and we settled on this one, showing her coming out of a heart that connects to him in that space dimension.
