After I learned that id software has apparently registered www.ua-corp.com I decided I might finally release this lovely artwork I did in September.

I wondered how the UAC advertised before the Phobos Incident, and I imagined it might be something very simplistic. No mottos or anything to try and sell themselves, just an image of the moons of Mars as if to say "Yeah, you know who we are." Phobos is pictured on the left and Deimos on the right. Both are that shape (Phobos does have that big crater - it's named Stickney!) and they do orbit that close to the planet. You can get the full size bitmap which measures 1800 pixels by 2400 pixels as well. Since I'm so hardcore I took it to Kinko's and had an 18x24 poster printed which I intend to hang up once I finish shooting slides of it for my portfolio.

Get the fullsize version and look at the text near the lower right corner. WTF is that? :D

In unrelated news, it's all fun and games until someone gets hurt.
