Artwork for Antigrav Unlimited 3.1

Last year I created some new artwork to go with my new edition of my sci-fi novel Antigrav Unlimited 3.1. This book is special to me since it was the first novel I got into print with a big publisher (in this case Avon Books which — back in the mid-1980s — had a nice […]

Bringing Philo of Alexandria to Life

From time to time, I get the chance to create a book cover illustration of a historic character. This gets a little tricky because often the “historic” pictures of them are another ancient artist’s notion of what the character looked like — often incorporating elements that are in fashion or vogue within the culture and […]

Creating the Cover Art for Manhunt on Tau Ceti 4

I just got word that John Bowers’ newest sci-fi novel Manhunt on Tau Ceti 4 is now available at Amazon. The book is number six in the Nick Walker, U.F. Marshal series. I’d created a 3D figure of Nick Walker for a previous cover I did in this series, so I was able to rapidly […]

Creatures, Monsters, and Nightmare Art

Graphic Novel Style Artwork

I’ve created two graphic novels of sorts (Witches and Fish and The Raven — both available from Amazon.com as well as the artwork for the Werewolves of New Idria written by John Chadwell). However, while these three books meet the requirements of being sequential, telling a story, and being supported by artwork, aren’t in the […]

A Better Way to Sell Your Books

For many self-publishing authors, sales have tanked due to the huge number of authors, and the fact that many are giving away their products to get a higher “sales” position (arguably 50 percent of zero is zero). One way many authors have employed to get their books above the maddening crowd of mediocre, self published […]

Dieselpunk Artwork (for Book Covers), Part III

One final installment (for a while) to show off some of my Dieselpunk artwork. The pictures in this post are all artwork created for Stephen Quayle’s Empire Beneath the Ice. Above is the “Dorn” aircraft that the Nazis were working on during the end of WWII (and rumored to have become operational following the war […]
