the news section

By "news" of course, we mean that which is new. Information, projects, ideas, that sort of thing. Maybe sometimes now and then you might find the "recent" and occasionally something quite "old" might find its way on to these pages. Possibly it could be in the form of an illustration, or perhaps I"m just behind the curve in some way. Enjoy.

Space Puzzle for Mudpuppy

15 x 10 inch puzzle for Mudpuppy
You may recall the Astronauts in Peril I posted during my recent month-long sojourn in Arkansas. This was a sketch for a puzzle I was drawing and designing for Galison/Mudpuppy. I’ve done quite a lot of work for Mudpuppy. In fact, over the last two or three years, the work for Mudpuppy has been my favorite in both the process and the results. So when Cynthia Matthews called and asked me to do a piece with aliens and planets and comets and stuff, I jumped on it.
I completed the puzzle last week. While it won’t be published for almost a year (June 2010), I am happy to be able to show it off now. The timing is nice, as I’m about to start working on a book for Hyperion about aliens and I’d not quite yet figured out how I want it to look. This is a good start.
Below are four smaller detail images showing the puzzle in more detail.
