My 2008 Published Work

Here's a one-stop visual list of my 2008 published works. As noted elsewhere (thanks, Chris, Cheryl, and John), the awards nomination season is upon us again (Hugos and otherwise). If you wish to reference the list below for future consideration this year, please bookmark this post. FYI: in addition, my blog sidebar displays my 2008 work in abbreviated form. The big list below doesn't include all of my interior illustrations for ELRIC: THE STEALER OF SOULS, but it includes my favorite one from that set, along with the eighteen cover illos published in '08. Onward...

The three Jeff Ford covers above are a trilogy, so I created their covers as a triptych. This is what the original art looks like. It's one of the most labor-intensive pieces I've ever done, but definitely a labor of love. This is all traditional media, no digital.... oil painting, found objects, collage, and shadowbox assemblage.

Pocket Books really liked the triptych I did for a Kirk/Spock/McCoy trilogy a couple of years ago. So they commissioned me to do another for their 2008 STAR TREK: TEROK NOR trilogy. This is what the three covers above look like when they're side-by-side.

Onward and best wishes to everyone in 2009!

Wow, that Jeffrey Ford trilogy piece is pretty mind blowing! I loved it. My second favorite was the Dan Simmons cover. Both really fabulous. Looks like you had a damn good year. Benno

Thanks, Benno. Much appreciated. Just received copies of the Dan Simmons book last night. Will blog about it sometime soon. Happy New Year over there....

I hope to be able to see one of your shadow boxes in the future - I know you don't like to travel with them, but sincerely hope that if you do decide to take them to a Con (or if you have an exhibition of your work in a gallery somewhere), you are sure to give some advance notice!

Just stunning.

Hi, Mair! Just realized I forgot to drop by here and say 'thanks' for your kind comment. Yeah, 'hard not to damage those big shadowboxes when they travel, but the next time one heads near you, I'll give heads-up....maybe Boskone 2010??

I love both of the Triptychs and you may very well have inspired me to pick up a Star Trek novel. I haven't read one in ages.
