Electric cars are the future! We need to have a 21st century WPA project that retrofits the nation’s highway system with some kind of capacitive inductance dealio so that cars draw current from embedded elements in roadway surfaces. Reduce the need for a mass of heavy batteries in the car, and charge (ar ar) drivers by the amount of current they draw.
Anyway, just an old doodle I polished up and decided to post. It’s been forever since I had a minute to do non-client work. I really miss it.

I’m in the middle of writing up a short article/interview and found this old travel sketch while looking through the dusty back alleys of my network drives. I think it was done in Yucatan Mexico in the early 90s while waiting on parts for our VW bus which had broken down on the side of the road.
I received an advance copy of my forthcoming book “Extreme Worlds: The Complete Guide to Drawing and Painting Sci-Fi Art” from the publisher today. The graphic design and layout are terrific, I am really pleased with the work the editors and designers did on this.
The book should be out in October here in the US and a month or so after in the UK (and the rest of the world? Not sure how all that stuff works…).
I sent in the final revisions to my next art how-to book a while ago, and the publisher recently sent me a shot of the front and back cover art. This one will be a little more demo-oriented than the previous book on fantasy characters. The book will be out in late October/early November and is available for pre-order at most online book sellers. Hope you enjoy it!
