This month's Lightspeed Magazine features a cover by yours truly, as well as an Artist Spotlight. It also has featured stories worthy of being Hugo and Nebula-nominated, but for our purposes, there's art!
They licensed my painting "Embryonic" for use as their cover. I wondered how they might design the cover, but should not have been surprised to see the art flipped vertical; after all, I hung it upright myself for awhile!
The Artist Spotlight features a short interview, primarily on the subject of this painting, with a few other questions tossed in. They asked me for a selection of images to add for the article. I felt a little bad, since it was going to be primarily pieces already in my portfolio. That's great for new folks just discovering my work, but for you, dear readers, who have been following along, I was hoping to give you reason to look through as well.
I think I found how to do it. First off, the images are decently-sized so you can get some better views without my zoomified detail views. I'm loath to put larger images online simply due to rampant reposting and piracy, but I'm also not so naive to think it won't happen anyway. So, some bigger scans.
But then, I decided to contact a publisher about a couple of images, to see if I could get permission to show them before the product released. So, courtesy of Imagine, Ltd., I was able to give them 2 images to show that aren't on my site yet. Preview images! They were shown in the background of a photo a few months back, but here they are. So if you wanna check out two new paintings before they're even on my own website, go check it out! I'll post more details on the both of them here this month, so stay tuned.
The magazine releases serially over the course of the month, but if you'd like to purchase an eReader format, you can get the entire magazine at once. It'd be a nice $3 show of support, and you get some short fiction and articles as well.
