Hello!
« on: September 29, 2011, 10:26:08 AM »
I'm new here - just wanted to introduce myself.

I'm a freelance science-fiction and fantasy artist, currently doing my best to promote my work around the web! I'm also an avid SF reader, mostly classics, particularly from Gollancz's "SF Masterworks" range. But whatever I'm reading often goes on to inspire my artwork - which you can see here:

http://www.thelightdream.net/

One of my (many) ambitions is to break into book cover artwork, as that's one of the things which inspired me to take this path in the first place. That book being Arthur C Clarke's The City and the Stars, the painting being by Chris Moore.

Comments, likes, shares all very much appreciated!

Hey, best of luck with the illustration venture. I know it can be tough to break into anything doing freelance.  :-\

Thanks guys :)

Although I read more sci-fi than fantasy, I thought my work might be of interest to folk here, and I've been looking for a good reading forum for a while now.
