Classic Science-Fiction Illustrators (Part 4) – Peter Elson

Our classic Science-Fiction illustrators series [1][2][3] continues with a tribute to perhaps the most complete of all British artists; the late, great, Peter Elson (13 January 1947 – March 1998).

Elson’s artistic potential was evident at early age, beginning to draw as soon as he could hold a pencil. Something of a prodigy, he completed his Art A-Level two years early at age 16 (A-Grade, of course). Whilst at Ealing Art College he studied fashion before switching to graphics. His career in Sci-Fi illustration took off in 1977 when he entered and won a Sci-Fi artwork competition. Commissions began to flood in and a star was born.

Classic Science-Fiction Illustrators (Part 3) – Roger Dean

For the third installment of our classic Sci-Fi illustrators series, we move from one alien landscape master to another. He is an artist so exotic and distinctive he merits his own sub-genre.

I’m of course talking about British artist and designer Roger Dean (born 31 August 1944 in Ashford, Kent).

The Art of Feebee

The Art of Feebee

Following on from Em Niwa, Sci-Fi-O-Rama presents another Eastern-flavoured selection of fantastical art. Feebee is a Japanese illustrator and full-time artist whose professional career dates back to 2002. I came across her striking imagery via Pinterest and was compelled to dig deeper.

Sci-Fi-O-Rama Team Update

Sci-Fi-O-Rama Team Update

This year has seen significant behind the scenes work here at Sci-Fi-O-Rama.  Firstly, Sci-Fi-O-Rama was re-hosted and overhauled. Secondly, the site has been pruned for broken content and links accumulated over the last ten years. And thirdly, we now have three members on the Sci-Fi-O-Rama team.

The Illustrations of Em Niwa

The Illustrations of Em Niwa

An introduction here to the energetic art of Australian/Japanese illustrator and animator Em Niwa. I stumbled upon her beautifully unconstrained work via Pinterest.

Em is one of those rare artists with a real feel for the deftness of line. She is able to apply this fluidity to craft extremely rich character designs.

Classic Science-Fiction Illustrators (Part 2) – Tim White

Welcome to the second part of our Classic Science-Fiction Illustrators series. Today we present the unmistakable iridescence of British artist Tim White (born 4 April 1952 in Erith, Kent).

Tim’s extensive career follows a trajectory similar to that of Jim Burns (Part 1). Both started out in the mid-1970s and evolved to produce cover art for many Sci-Fi and Fantasy authors. In Tim’s case, these include luminaries such as Arthur C. Clarke, Robert Heinlein, Terry Pratchett and H. P. Lovecraft.
