Yesterday, I received word that three of my artworks will be included in the forthcoming art annual, Infected By Art 3.

Today, I want to share news of a forthcoming fantastic sf/f art book called Inspired. It’s the brainchild of Chesley Award-winning art director and Art Order mastermind Jon Schindehette. The collection features a juried selection of works from over 30 international artists via Art Order’s “Inspiration” Challenge. I’m honored to be included amongst the artists chosen for this volume, and you can see the full list of selected artists here.

The jury for this book — an amazing lineup of sf/f luminaries:

Irene Gallo — Associate Publisher,

Julie Bell — Illustrator

Lauren Panepinto — Creative Director, Orbit Books

Rebecca Guay — Illustrator / Founder of Illustration Master Class & smArt School

Terese Nielsen — Illustrator

Terryl Whitlatch — Illustrator and Creature Designer Extraordinaire

Inspired is going to be a dynamite art collectible and the print run is limited to only 1000 copies — now taking pre-orders!

BONUS! All pre-orders also receive a digital copy of the book for free!! You can score your books here.

‘Can’t wait to see the finished product, and be inspired. Congrats to Jon — and thank you for creating not only this book, but potentially a new art book model where all parties share the revenue pie. Thank you to the jury, and congrats to all of the artists that were selected!
