As with previous artists, Col brings a unique style and tone to his work. They say the devil is in the details and this is particularly true of Col’s work. Study his ship designs and you’ll note the climbing frame outside the hulls. You’ll find the connector caps and portholes are clearly visible–even scratches and dents are observable–and the minute detail of various hatches and panels that clutter the exterior. I love that.

Let me know your thoughts in the comments.

  1. I love theses. They are like a fresh take on those amazing surreal sci-fi covers of the seventies and eighties. They were the pieces that elevated the book by making it more strange and distant than the author could have in many cases.

    1. I feel the same way. Back then it was usually the cover that attracted me first and I remember how I used to take a peek at the cover every now and then while I read the story. I did then and I still do enjoy both the story and cover art. For me, a good cover is like a primer for my imagination. Sadly, great covers are rare these days.
