Here is another cover commissioned by Ebb and Folks. Five's The End is a novella by David Leyman that completes the trilogy that begins with Three's Company and continues with Four of a Kind (the second artwork in this post). The style of digital inks and colours (instead of a painterly look) of the cover for all three novellas is an editorial decision.
Irfan went to the National Science Centre.
Star Trek the Exhibition was being housed there for the time being. Shane managed to go to Star Wars Identities which looked better, but I takes what I gets.
They didn't beam us aboard, we had to walk up the steps and push the door open. Thankfully, this procedure did not need the use of a Heisenberg compensator.

It's that ship sent by Weyland Industries.
S.S. Lollipop or something.
Can't wait for the movie.
I'm not saying it's ALIEN, but it's ALIEN.
Ruthermore Heidigens and the Fifth Planet is the first of David Leyman's Ruthermore Heidigens science fiction novellas. It features the most powerful wizard in the known universe, simply because he's the only wizard in the universe. His powers are real, but are they really of a magical source?
Here's the cover for the book I painted recently in watercolour:
Meevo is the ebook novella by David Leyman. It is a suitably eerie horror-flavoured science-fiction tale involving an escaped prisoner, the prisoner's hunters and - as we see in the opening scenes - a mutant, in a post-apocalyptic future.

Horizon is a short film written and directed by Emma Coats, set in the wilds of a post-apocalyptic near future. I've seen a rough cut of the film. It looks spectacular and is very ambitious project. Also, it has a zeppelin! I was invited to contibute a movie poster to be displayed in a gallery released with the DVD and here's what I came up with.

After 28 years, the sequel to Disney's Tron is finally upon us. Tron Legacy, produced by the original movie's director Steven Lisberger and directed by newcomer Joseph Kosinski, had a unique problem. Tron had a connection to the computer and gaming lore of the late 70s and early 80s, with its simple vector graphics and sounds. The home computer for the consumer was still rare. The general public had very little clue on how computers work. The World Wide Web is still almost a decade away. How can one create a modern sequel to a movie based on anachronistic world view of technology?
Very simple. Just build upon the even more fantastic elements of the first movie and move on from there.

Yeah, I just wanted to post pictures of the live-action corpsmen on the blog, is all. Too bad there's no Mogo and Bzzd.

I was looking at papercraft material online when I came across a Gamera papercraft, which was only a two-page downloadable pdf. Irfan and I spent the part of the afternoon cutting, folding and gluing the pieces together. Finally this was what we ended up with:
