I love the spacecraft possibilities of water towers. Here’s one posing as a flying saucer over an Aztec pyramid. Not one of my more complicated pieces but fun in its own way.
Lots and lots of stock photos, color manipulation, and editing. A heightened sense of reality and over saturation of color to suggest a bright future.
Photoshop and lots of stock photos. Heavy use of squid and insects as aliens.
Originally used for the cover of Amazing Stories WorldCon 2018 Preview issue sent as a Kickstarter Bonus to our backers. Created using many simple clipart images to create a heroic cover.
A was looking at a photo of Venice and thought about what will NYC look like when the waters rise. Again, lots of stock photos, oversaturation, and enormous amounts of editing.
A pilot cracks up during an attempted landing on an alien world with a corrosive atmosphere. Stock photos (the ship was a water tower!) and editing fun.
A murder mystery in spaaaace! NASA stock pics, Photoshop fun, a manipulated skull (notice – it’s distorted to look like the skull of a grey alien). Also, fun with polar coordinate image conversion.
Unpublished – a lunar resident finds a discarded glove amongst the trash of early lunar workers. Stock photos and NASA stock photos.
Colorized stock photo, add tentacle in place of arm/hand, and a bunch of other image manipulation. Inspired by Kelly Freas’ cover for ‘Martin go Home!’.
Inspired by the old O’Neil colony paintings. The inside of an inhabited asteroid that’s been carved out and spun up. The long pole is lightning for the colony. Light piped in from outside / sun / sol. Polar coordinate image conversion fun and lots of stock photos of landscapes and mountains.
