This year’s theme is space opera – tales of starships and alien invaders and hypercrystaldriveplosions and the Squrlma’x of Nebulon 487.
Speculative Fiction 2012 won the British Fantasy Society Award 2014 for Non-Fiction! So super pleased about that because Jared Shurin an’ Justin Landon did a amazing job of putting the project together, so many people contributed so much fascinating work and hey, I designed the cover as my tiny contribution to the whole thing!
Jurassic London’s ‘Stories Of The Smoke’, it turns out, has been published in Russia. Eight selections from ‘Stories of the Smoke’ have been translated and published, as part of a special edition hardcover, for SNOB magazine.
The Kitschies, presented by Kraken Rum, reward the year’s most progressive, intelligent and entertaining works that contain elements of the speculative or fantastic.
Well, who wouldn’t want to design a poster for that, right? Especially as it means I get to draw tentacles. Heh. Kraken Rum have just lovely graphics for their tasty tipple. Really nice stuff. But rather than simply copy their illustrations I wanted a tiny monster all of my own.
And – when it’s for the only awards ceremony where you actually win a tentacle – I feel you should clearly make an effort!
