I am a Hugo award-winning fantasy/SF artist who works on both publishing projects and film concept work(such as Jimmy Neutron and most recently, The Ant Bully) but I have a passion for landscape work, small paintings and exploring the properties of paint. This blog will mostly showcase my "painting-for-the-day" as kind of a personal voyage. I'll also be inserting sketches,photos and ideas of projects I am working on, that I can, when I can, so look for those every so often(usually as paint is drying!)

Eye-Pod Attack!!!!

Eye Pod Attack!!! So here's a new cover I did for this Ben Bova collection of funny SF stories. I was totally stuck for an idea that would be fun to paint. So I went with the idea of this creepy monster going to eat a spaceship...Eye Pod Attack!!!! I did this in oils, it's 16x20 and, it's for sale but inquire on the price! I was really inspired more than a bit by my friend Eric Joyner's marvelous works. Sometimes I think Science Fiction is taken WWAAY too seriously, so time for some fun with giant slimey monsters! My sig btw is on the rocket itself!Compare with the sketches in the previous posts.

This is nice, I haven't seen space monsters like this since maybe my childhood! And I love how you put your sig on the rocket, that was a good idea.

Keep On Going! =]

Thanks! I love these kind of 1950's monsters. They are a ton of fun. I think also deep in people's hearts they ALL love them!
