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).

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.

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.

Classic Science-Fiction Illustrators (Part 1) – Jim Burns

To celebrate ten years of Sci-Fi-O-Rama I thought it would be poignant to reacquaint you with some of the most popular artists we’ve featured through the decade.

Here then is the first part of a new series featuring a selection of genre pioneers synonymous with the pre-digital ‘Golden Age’ of Sci-Fi Illustration. These are artists that were most prolific – though not exclusively – during the 1970s and 1980s, together they’ve captured and inspired the imagination of millions.

In no specific order let us begin with Welsh maestro Jim Burns…

Tinne Zenner – Nutsigassat

First up, Sci-Fi-O-Rama was 10 years old last month (28th of March) and though posts may have dwindled somewhat through recent years we are very much back, so a big thanks to long-term and new readers alike. On with the post…

I’m currently contracting with an Icelandic games studio and am fortunate enough to spend a fair bit of time over there. Recently I visited Reykjavík Art Museum (highly recommended) and came across the spellbinding video work of contemporary Danish artist Tinne Zenner.
