Sketchbook Sci-Fi

I’m clearly really interested in putting my monotype discards to use as reinvented images. He’s another.

I see this as a glimpse into an alien home on a planet far from Earth.  This humanoid creature is troubled, looking out into space from a balcony in It’s home. Oh, and It’s wearing a very long sweeping scarf.  The image below is a detail revealing (hopefully), the creature.

Proof that I’m watching too many Star Trek reruns while I make these collages;)


Space Buddies

Yeah, I’m a sci-fi fantasy fan.  Love of  fairy tales and Dr. Seuss transitioned quite seamlessly for me, into Star Trek .  The new Doctor  Who, Fringe, Stargate Atlantis, and their ilk, tickle me.  I seriously relate to the work of Octavia Butler, Margaret Atwood, Arthur C. Clark, Joss Whedon, and Felicia Day.  There is something quite powerful in the crisp social commentary, fantastic creatures, dark mystery, and rye humor of  the work, that fully captures my imagination.  The blatant visual element excites my optic nerves!

I guess the wonder of painting on a computer with a tablet, creating illustrations for children, and all of the possibilities this arrangement offers, makes fantastic sense to me.   It’s glorious fun!
