The Art of Martiniere

Thanks to Stainless Steel Droppings for his excellent post on sci-fi cover art!
He featured several works by Stephan Martiniere, whose art is just stunning.

But Martiniere does more than just covers - he does illustration & concept art for movies, video games, and theme parks. He worked on such projects such as Myst 5, The Fifth Element, Knowing, Titan AE, Unoversal's Jurassic Park ride, and even directed several animated series. That's quite impressive!

His book, Quantum Dreams: The Art of Stephan Martiniere, contains 130 illustrations from book covers to video game designs to early sketches.

Visit his site at Stephan Martiniere for more information about this amazing artist.

Yes it is! I think to see some of the finest artwork out there, one doesn't have to go far from the sci-fi section of the bookstore.

Those are cool! I'm a big Michael Whelan fan myself.

I love Martiniere's art, particularly the covers of Kay Kenyon's recent series.

By the way, nice Start. Did you put the humbucker in yourself?
