The Machinehouse Worker’s Song Illustration

Howdy folks,

I’d like to share my new illustration for the Interzone magazine story, The Machinehouse Worker’s Song by Steven J Dines. I thoroughly recommend getting your hands on this magazine for some excellent SF stories. Steve’s story and my artwork will be out in issue 246.

Many thanks to Andy Cox of TTA Press for the opportunity to paint for such a great publication.

The original painting is 18″ x 13″, oil on Canson paper.

Here is a preview of the page and the beginning of Steve’s story. Enjoy!

News and other SciFi Art updates.

Howdy folks,

Just a news update to let you all know what I’ve been up to lately. Just before Christmas last year I finished off two concept paintings for the Maze Runner film. I was slated to keep going on this but production so far hasn’t needed me.

I was also asked to finish off two new Wolverine concept paintings by Fox which was great. The moment the film comes out I’ll have my Wolverine concept art up. One other film job I can’t mention has also crossed my desk these last coupe of weeks.

I’m working.. (slowly) with Marianne de Pierres on a short graphic novel project called Sentients of Orion: The Hue, that I’m itching to get back onto.. Sorry Marianne, we’ll get there!!

On the scifi side I’m painting two interior illustrations for Interzone magazine and working on an oil painting tutorial for ImagineFX magazine.

The Concept Art course that I was going to help teach at Randwick TAFE didn’t pan out, but an even better course looks to have risen from North Sydney TAFE. So a good chance I’ll be teaching there later this year and into 2014. This course will be a more intensive program of Illustration for the Film, Games and Publishing industries.

In amongst all of that I have repaired roofs, dug drainage and replaced pipe work and finally.. finally found the source of my studio flooding!!

Anyway, enough of that.. here is the cover image for the GN project I’m doing with Marianne. Enjoy!
