Report From The Universe – A Springbok Puzzle I Once Had

I’m three years into my space art exploration, and I often find myself wondering where this fascination began in my past. It’s not an unusual stretch of imagination for those that know me personally, as I’ve always been a space and science fiction fan going back as far as I can remember. I came into this world just in time to witness the first moon landing. Space TV shows were all over the few channels any of us could access through the air.

Under the Influence of artists Chris Foss and John Harris

Recently I purchased The Definitive SF Works of Chris Foss, and Beyond The Horizon – The Art of John Harris. Both are amazing collections of science fiction imagery by masters of the art. Their work has been seen on many books, influenced movies (Chris Foss had a direct hand in ALIEN, Jodorowsky’s DUNE, among many others). Like John Berkey, their images left an indelible impression on my mind.

More Sketches from The Expanse

For the record, I am not affiliated in any way with SyFy Channel’s production of The Expanse series. These are merely my own sketches which I made while reading James S.A. Corey’s The Expanse series. Beginning with Leviathan Wakes, I was impressed with the depth of thought that went into building out their vision of the solar system. I kept my sketchbook nearby while I was reading these books, and previously I posted one that I finished off with Photoshop of the Rocinante.
