Storyworld Exhibition opening

The launch of the Storyworld exhibition held at the Illustration Cupboard yesterday was a great success. Many of the artists involved with this enormous project were present, along with the publishers from Templar who commissioned the work, and of course art collectors who are regular clients at the gallery.

The above two illustrations were the Paul Hess images chosen for the show, and the rest are available from me. There is a collection of Paul's work for sale here.

Paul will be taking part in a Storytelling event at The Baltic in Gateshead on 9th October.

I was also delighted to be involved with the illustrations by three of the Arena artists, Matilda Harrison, Philip Hood and Tomislav Tomic. Many of those originals are now available directly from Arena. It really is the most almighty of projects, and one which has been a delight.

Alien landscapes by Fred Gambino

Fred was asked by Templar Publishing to design some alien landscapes for the latest book in their "ology" series about Aliens.

Here you'll find volcanic landscapes, ice planets and swirling gas. Cities, jungles and deserts. Fred can conjure them all. Click on the image for a larger version. More of Fred's illustration here.
