The Art of Marek Okon
I was reminded of Marek’s work on Twitter recently. I first saw his portfolio in my publishing days (Solaris, Black Library), and was always impressed by his range of subjects and styles. I loved this top picture, and had it as my desktop for a while, because it just seemed evocative and had a striking perspective. I think he still does a lot of cover art for publishers, as well as concepts for games companies. Check out his website if you like the art.
Images From Other Worlds
The Guardian has posted some great images in support of the British Library’s Out Of This World exhibition. Take a look at the rest of the gallery.
Came across these and thought they certainly put my local to shame.
The Art Of Steve Jung
Another post where I scour the internet to find some of the most interesting SF and Fantasy art for your viewing pleasure. This time is artist Steve Jung, who has a more textured, layered and painterly style than some of the others I’ve linked to in the past – and gives good battle scene, too. As usual, the image links take you to the artist’s site.

The Art Of Jamie Jones
Hours spent trawling the internet can produce good things – I found Jamie Jones’ website last night. There are some very strongly portrayed characters here, a lovely use of light, and the dude gives good monster. He also does a lot of concept work, which seems to put bread on the table for a lot of artists these days. Each of the pictures links to his portfolio.
