My Photo
Name:
Location: New England, United States

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!)

 Art for a Damon Knight book, in 1992 or about, I had this one up before but this time it's $SOLD. Image is 19.5 x28 inches.


 Art for a Mercede's LAckey book from 1998, it's 14 x21, acrylics on canvas and  it is $SOLD.

SHARKS!!! Did this a LOOOONNNG time ago and it was highly art directed, and very tight, they wanted four sharks coming at a diver. One of those old Byron Preiss interactive kid's books I cannot remember the title for. Anyway the image is 14 x23 and it's $450.


DRAGON LADY(12.5 x 23.5) Done for my portfolio back in the day, around 30 years ago. I've improved so much since. But this is still a fun piece, matted. $SOLD



FALLING,  17 x24, 1990 or so. DOne for an F&SF cover for a George Zebrowski story that takes place on Miranda, a moon of Uranus. It has a few nicks and scratches( that were fixed) thanks to poor storage.Anyway, it's $SOLD 

FLYING MONKEYS(17 x25) A cover to a book by John BArnes I forgot the title of. Anyway, it's an expanded version of a story for Asimovs Magazine. Again, this image has some small blemishes here and there, from poor storage and a background airbrush, nothing that a framing job won't distract from. $600.

 Fiery Planets(13.5 x 22) Done for a Charles Sheffield book around 1998. $SOLD
