Animated Sketchbook 1: Re Mi Do Do So

This is just an extremely rough quick series of sketches on the theme of communication failure, all animated in an old-style way. I can animate everything a lot smoother than this, obviously, but time’s an issue these days and it … Continue reading

IF – Grounded

I haven’t drawn anything new in about fourteen hundred months and now I suddenly have to draw a bunch of stuff in the three days that I have left before school starts back again. I mean, the issue where I … Continue reading

Experimental Anaglyphs

Still in the trial-and-error phase on this stuff. Mostly error. But getting there, slowly. I mean, I guess no matter how many tutorials and instructables and whatever else you read, doing these 3D style things is ultimately some sort of … Continue reading

Savage Orbit Magazine #1

I was telling my wife about Samuel Delany’s awesome story, “Aye, and Gomorrah,” which made me want to reread the story for the nineteenth time, which made me remember his invented space opera titles, which made me want to draw … Continue reading

Pulp Style Art #2

They didn’t pick this one, which I totally understand…it was by far the longest shot of them all. But I’m posting the whole thing anyway because of how proud I am of “‘A Night at the Space Opera’ by Herman … Continue reading

Pulp SF Retro Style Art (with a Bug and a Space Lady)

Believe it or not, there was a totally grown-up and professional reason why I drew this. Seriously. I mean, it’s nice when doing parody becomes sort of a legit job. Even though, at the moment, the job’s a secret project … Continue reading

una vacanza su Aldebaran

Sketch for a new cover for Ugo Litorina’s 1966 novel, A Holiday on Aldebaran. The spaceman, of course, is Lev Podor, who also appeared in The Automatic Giraffe, Hoxa’s Planet, and The Trojan Dragon. The monster, meanwhile, isn’t really a … Continue reading

Imaginary Paperback: Fiasco (1)

A sketch for a new paperback cover for Stanislaw Lem’s 1987 novel, Fiasco, even though, of course, I love the cover the HBJ edition already has on it. Anyway, this is just for practice, I guess. Meanwhile, I have another, … Continue reading

Space Opera

A rough sketch for the cover of a new edition of Litorina’s sprawling interstellar adventure, A Marriage of Convenience (which, by the way, somebody oughta CGI the heck outta this book…it’s a wild, wild ride).

i fantasmi della fenditura del Cigno

A rough sketch for the illustrated Italian reissue of Ugo Litorina’s 1972 imaginary novel, Ghosts of the Cygnus Rift. Still not quite up to speed on how I used to do rockets…but getting there, even if only slowly.

Solaris

This is kind of a waste of time, but at least it’s the fun sort (sort of). Anyway, I got annoyed by the Solaris cover I posted before, so here’s another version, which I’m sure will annoy me in turn … Continue reading
