IMAG­INEFX CRIT

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Issue 129 Christmas 2015 -

“I’ve never seen Snow White por­trayed with such in­ten­sity as in Smoke and Mir­rors. Any pass­ing hand­some prince may want to think again be­fore res­cu­ing the fairest of them all from her eter­nal slum­ber!” Daniel Vin­cent, Art Editor

1 Mer­maid “This is a per­sonal piece, in­spired by a lo­cal leg­end about a mer­maid caught and held cap­tive in a church in or­der to be bap­tised. She dies and her fa­ther, the king of the Baltic Sea, de­stroys the church.”

2 Sm oke and Mir­rors “Cover illustration for the new Pol­ish edi­tion of Neil Gaiman’s short story col­lec­tion, Smoke And Mir­rors. It shows Snow White as she’s de­scribed in one of his sto­ries: beau­ti­ful but very, very cold.”

3 In The Woods “This is a per­sonal piece. I live in a small vil­lage close to a for­est, and oc­ca­sion­ally I come across red deer. They’re in­cred­i­bly im­pres­sive.”

4 The Gold en Fool “Cover illustration for The Golden Fool by Robin Hobb. The cover de­picts the Fool: a not-quite hu­man, an­drog­y­nous be­ing in his guise as Lord Golden. The Fool is a won­der­ful, very com­plex char­ac­ter and a joy to paint.”
