From text to sketch to finished artwork

When I was near the end of Eden’s Endgame, the final instalment of the Eden Paradox series, I commissioned artist John Harris to do a front cover. I sent him chapter 20, in which a scythe-ship heads to an unknown planet. He sent me back the sketch, and then we had a discussion, after which he produced the finished version. It was so amazing to be able to do this, and I was really happy with the end result!…

Ossyria Prime

In Eden’s Trial, Pierre and Kat visit the Ossyrian homeworld. Ossyria Prime has been re-engineered into horizontal continents, for agriculture, technology, mining, etc. Each continental ‘slice’ rotates in the opposite direction to its neighbour, generating endless titanic power in the planet’s magnetic core. Pierre, a scientist, is in awe as they approach the planet-sized marble! [Thanks to artist Suman C]

Happy New Year (2024!) to all my readers

As New Year is just around the corner, here’s an Eden Paradox visual from artist Suman Chakraborty of the Ulysses crew, after a difficult voyage, finally approaching Eden, only to find there’s a desert where there shouldn’t be one… The entire crew begin to wonder if Kat’s nightmares are going to come true…

Happy 2024 everyone!
