To a thrilling edi­tion

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Editor’s Letter - Claire Howlett, Ed­i­tor claire@imag­inefx.com

Hello there! How are you? I imag­ine that you quite sim­ply couldn’t avoid Fred Augis’ cover art sit­ting on the newsstand. It’s a wel­com­ing, bright and eye-catch­ing im­age, isn’t it? I’m al­ways amazed and a bit hum­bled by the cal­i­bre of artists that we’re able to get in the mag­a­zine – yes, even after be­ing on Imag­ineFX for 116 is­sues. I still get a thrill when choos­ing my dream list of artists that I’d like to ap­pear… and that th­ese same artists agree to spend their time shar­ing their tech­niques and in­spir­ing art with us. This is­sue is no ex­cep­tion. Work­shop-wise we have cover artist Fred, who’s a force of orig­i­nal­ity and style; there’s Bren­ton Cottman, an artist who’s worked on some of the big­gest films ever made; and Donato Gian­cola, who’s skill, ded­i­ca­tion and ex­e­cu­tion of art makes me weep in awe.

I’m also a big fan of Stephan Mar­tinière’s art, and I loved read­ing about his var­ied ca­reer. I thought I knew a lot about his work, but was not only sur­prised to dis­cover his love of comic art, but also that he worked on the In­spec­tor Gad­get car­toon TV se­ries. If you were a child of the 80s or early 90s, you’ll al­ready have the theme tune stuck in your head after see­ing Gad­get’s name again. Sorry!

Also, if you have any com­ments or sug­ges­tions about what we should (or shouldn’t!) fea­ture in Imag­ineFX, or any other feed­back or news about what you’re do­ing ar­tis­ti­cally, please write in to us at mail@imag­inefx.com. We al­ways love to hear from you.
