Spectrum 21 Feature

Spectrum 21

Here we have a book of extraordinary quality. And by that I don’t mean the presentation and quality paper. It’s more about the diversity and quality of art that is included in this fine publication. It contains all kinds of artistic fields and artists that define the visual media of today. No matter if games, movies or entertainment in general. No wonder that other editions of the book were nominated for a Hugo award. Quite amazing. This book actually would not even be on my radar if it weren’t for Lauren Panepinto at Orbit Books. Quite a while ago they used my ‘Phoenix Rising‘ piece for the cover of a Simon Morden scifi book. Lauren seemed to really like my picture and submitted it (as well as works by other artists) to the Spectrum folks. With a little luck my picture made it into the book. That was a great surprise. So a couple of weeks ago I received my copy of the book and want to show you some bits and pieces.

And my ‘Phoenix Rising‘ on page 52.

Gothic Dreams – Dystopia

Gothic Dreams - Dystopia

Here we go with two pics from my artwork catalogue have been featured in the recent book release “Gothic Dreams – Dystopia” by Flametree Publishing. It’s a really cool book that gives young folks the perfect introduction into the field of dystopian scifi stories. May it be books, tv productions or movies. Everything illustrated by some really good work by fellow artists from around the world. I even recognized a couple of the artworks. The book’s price is really affordable and what you’ll get is a book that’s printed on some nice thick quality paper that perfectly serves the artwork it presents.

The featured pieces are: Epica & The Moebius Passage

Adobe Master Class Book Feature

Adobe Master Class: Advanced Compositing in Photoshop

Recently “Adobe Master Class: Advanced Compositing in Photoshop” written by Bret Malley was released and is now available. In the book he very thouroughly explains various Photoshop techniques to achieve and realize all kinds of visual ideas. The book itself comes in very nice shape, printed on very good paper and an easy to follow layout. Now what role do I play? Well, not a too big one but still something I’m sorta proud of. Beside great artists like Andree Wallin, I’m featured in the Ebook version of the book that can be bought separately or downloaded if you already own a print book version. The cool thing about the Ebook version is that it comes with a bonus chapter about Scifi!

Right now there is also a Discount/Promo code available if you buy a copy via the Peachpit site. The Promocode is: AMC2014

All About Space Magazine No. 29

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

All About Space Issue No. 29

Not long ago I got contacted by the All About Space Magazine to do an apocalyptic scenario of an Asteroid impact near a well known city. So I did a little Digital Matte Painting for the current issue of All About Space. The article I’ve done it for is about possible doomsday scenarios, quite an interesting read. If you are a Space fan then I’d suggest you check out this magazine. Really interesting topics and facts in there.

Assassin’s Cradle by Rupert Pollard

Sunday, August 10th, 2014

Assassin's Cradle

A couple of weeks ago I made a cover for self publishing writer Rupert Pollard. Nothing groundbreaking when it comes to the picture but it fits the authors idea and what he had in mind. He sent me a copy, which you can see in the photo, and it looks really good. I haven’t read the book yet but definitely plan to do so.

Here a short description: “In the future, galaxy-spanning conglomerates use subterfuge and treachery in a never-ending struggle for domination. Idries Tanarra, a na├»ve and overconfident operative, must build a network of allies to help him overthrow the malignant government of Ganoten, but he didn’t expect to fall in love, an operative’s fatal flaw. As he closes in on a solution, allies turn into deadly enemies, and competing forces seek to take advantage of the opportunity he creates. Can he navigate the perilous politics of espionage? Can he divine friend from foe when the stakes are survival? Will his decisions be his undoing or can he escape his predicament to take the ultimate step out of the assassin’s cradle?”
