I WAS DISCRIMINATED AGAINST BECAUSE OF MY RELIGIOUS BELIEFS AND I’M OK WITH IT


I’m a writer by occupation and vocation. I write around 20 articles each month and publish them on GaryDeMar.com. I also write books – 32 since 1982. For each title, I need a cover. Often I can find a royalty-free image from my vast collection of images. Sometimes I hire an artist because I want something very specific. My book Wars and Rumors of Wars is a good example.

My new book The Real Truth About the Rapture needs a cover. The book American Apocalypse: A History of Modern Evangelicalism has a great cover that would work with the subject matter of my book. If you are interested in the history of prophetic speculation in the United States, American Apocalypse is a great place to start.

The painting used on the cover is titled “The Rapture.” It reminded me of the following detail from the cover of Action Comics #1, the first appearance of Superman.

You can view the entire painting of “The Rapture” by Ryan Hershka here.

I contacted Mr. Hershka’s agent to find out how much it would cost to use a detail of the painting for my book. She wanted more information, so I sent her a copy of my book with the image included on the cover for her to see how much of the painting I would be using. Here’s her response:

Thank you for your interest in Ryan’s work, Gary.

RYAN DOES NOT WANT TO BE AFFILIATED WITH ANY RELIGION OR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS OR WRITINGS ESPECIALLY REGARDING HIS ARTWORK.
