Astroart - UK
Birmingham, United Kingdom
I illustrated my first book (for Patrick Moore) in 1954, and my SF art was first published in 1970, since which I've done hundreds of illustrations and covers, and worked for movies and TV. I've now done over 60 covers for F&SF and many for ANALOG. I'm European Vice President of the IAAA, and also VP of the ASFA. My 2004 book with (Sir) Patrick, FUTURES: 50 YEARS IN SPACE, was nominated for a Hugo and received the Sir Arthur Clarke Award.
I have written and illustrated 10 of my own books, and have one published novel, AURORA, recently reissued (October 2012) in a revised edition - see reviews on Amazon and SFCrowsnest. I've been working on a Mac since 1991, but still love to paint. An asteroid has been named after me! (see www.astroart.org – my new and improved website, where you can see – and buy – lots of my paintings, as well as books, prints, clocks, ties, DVDs . . .) Please take a look at my Photos on FB, too. I'm also now on Twitter and LinkedIn.
