Here's a project I recently completed that was pretty interesting for me, the illustrations for Ted Chiang's new novella "The Lifecycle of Software Objects". I had read a couple of Ted's stories before he had contacted me so I was pretty stoked to be involved and jumped at the chance, I think his stuff is terrific. You can listen to his Hugo Award nominated story Exhalation here!
This illustration was the first one I completed and became the cover image. We went through quite a lot of different illustrative styles before getting to this one and I'll show some of those and a few of the other paintings in more blog posts.
