I like this one a lot because of the way he does the snowflakes caught in the light.

I wish I could afford one of these because I would buy one in a minute. They have the clean graphic lines of Christopher Pratt (my favorite artist) PLUS the awesomeness of SciFi.

I like how in some of the paintings the machines are still powered up but obviously rusting and abandoned...

The deeper meaning I guess is that no matter what happens on this planet, there will still be dandelions and snow which will outlive technology.

They are so good. I might buy a print if I can get a big enough one...

Agreed. I'm loving the throwbacks to 70s and 80s cars and clothing in conjunction with advanced, and often broken down technology.

The detail is outstanding.

With all the rusty things lying around, I suspect that tetanus is going to be an issue in the future.

So the book is out, though shipping is a bit much - $30. Book is approximately $60. The shipping seems to stay constant if you order 2 or 3. If anyone is interested in going in on an order, then lemme know. I was thinking of getting this for my brother for Christmas.
