Another update with the next Interzone cover for issue 251.
This painting started life as a small watercolour sketch, became a small oil painting study (as seen in Spectrum 20) and has progressed here as the cover painting for Interzone’s next issue and doubles as larger study for a final painting that is currently in progress. The format may be different but I wanted to see the structure at full size and alter the colour and lighting a bit for more air.
The final Levitation painting will be in my favorite wide format at 46″ x 18″ (116cm x 46cm).
Original watercolour sketch..
Oil painting study..
18″ x 13.5″, Oil on paper. SOLD
And some detail pictures.
Update: Hot off the press, the actual cover.
Thought it was time to announce my involvement with a new Diploma/Advanced Diploma in Entertainment Design being run at North Sydney TAFE. We are calling it, the Production Art Department.
This is the second attempt at getting such a course off the ground that will allow us to teach Illustration the way it is meant to be delivered. It is biased toward film/games industries which means focusing on Concept Art but the core skills can be applied to Illustration for publishing for example.
I will be teaching the Light-Colour-Painting part of the course.
Feel free to drop me a line to discuss the course further. Enrollments will be open soon for a 2014 start. We will also be running a 3 week short course this month.

In the meantime, here are some sketches I’ve done recently for a book cover project… of which I also cannot talk about yet!
