ST3 by Arcas-Art ST3 by Arcas-Art
Hello? Bantam Books? Are you out there????

OK, maybe it's just nostalgia and an empty wallet talking, but it wouldn't it be cool to see "the James Blish Adaptations Remastered", with all new cover art?

Here's the original, if you don't have a copy :) cdn2.iofferphoto.com/img/item/…

Enterprise model by Aggi, Doomsday Machine mesh (converted to OBJ by me) by Raul Mamoru (via www.trekmeshes.ch).

I had to shoot special torpedoes into the mouth of 1 of those things on Star Trek Online.  Word to the wise, always keep your distance when killing a Giant Killer Space Log (as my dad would say :giggle:).

I wish I could legally offer one! Really. That's the hazard of doing fan art of licensed property...

Anyway, glad ya like!! :D

These are all phenomenal; love 'em. And given how many TREK novels are out there (not just the Blish works), there's a lot to play around with.

Yeah... but it's playing with the old Blish stuff that really called to me. It's like.... doin' the cover to the Bible ;p

I own no "Star Trek" book except the anime-styled paperbacks, but this cover art looks absolutely stunning.

I was going to ask, do you do covers for Bntam Books?. If you dont, they need to discover you. If you do, I'm not worthy.

Bantam seem to find the best scifi art covers I think. It's daft, if there is a choice between two books by the same author and story I go for the one with the best cover. 9/10 it tends to be covers published by Bantam.

Love your work

No, I'm not doing covers professionally... but thanks for the vote of confidence! :D It's a format I enjoy working in. Perhaps it's strange to make a hobby of something that is typically a piece of professional marketing...*shrug*.... but I have fun. I have been doing some professional book interior imergery - mostly with Allen Steele's work. But that's usually only one or two projects a year.

A man after my own heart. Love making up book covers myself.
