StarShipSofa wins a HUGO!

undefinedOver in Melbourne, Australia the winners of the esteemed HUGO Awards were just announced and I am very pleased to say the StarShipSofa has won. The first podcast in the history of the HUGO's to ever be nominated and ever to win!

I have contributed artwork to the 'sofa' on many occasions over this last year and feel a minute piece of that rocket statue was earned by me. Just a fragment of a grain of it mind you. Congratulations to Tony C. Smith, to everyone that has contributed over the years and of course to all those who voted and listened.

You can visit StarShipSofa at or download free shows on itunes.

You can see my StarShipSofa Contibutions here.

More Sofa Art to come!


I just signed up tp do another StarShipSofa Cover. I must be mad!

Look for it probably around the end of July maybe August. [Update: its done and you can find it here]

Meanwhile have look at the the cover art for Starshipsofa: The Captain's Logs by Dee Cunniffe.


The Captain's Log is the transcribed version of all the past shows put together by an entirely volunteer crew that spans the world.
Pretty amazing when you think about it.

New Art!

I was just handed the type treatment to the artwork I did for's Aural Delights No.138.
This cover illustrates Charon the Boatman of Hades as he starts his holiday. This story was written by Award Winning Author Jeffrey Ford.

This time I got away with having the image partially cover over some of the SSS title...which I believe is a first in their history. I'm planting a flag anyways and claiming rights!!!!!

The image on the right was my attempt at some typography.

Hope you like it!


StarShipSofa nominated for HUGO

Just a quick and very happy note to say was nominated for a Hugo award in the BEST FANZINE category. I had the honour of doing a cover painting for issue 122 and I am not to proud to say I feel like I got nominated as well! Can't wait to finish the next  one.

Congrats to Tony C. Smith for creating such a fantastic vehicle!

undefinedThis is another podcast I find myself listening to quite often while painting or working at the animation studio. Host Tony C. smith is the most energetic and enthusiastic host you'll ever run in to.

The podcast is a free download or stream from as well as a free subscription from iTunes! There are occasional book reviews, non fiction pieces relating to science fiction, the odd movie review and much more. I really like this podcast. Its got character and charm. I'd hoist a pint with Tony any day!

There is a possibility some of my work may be featured on the StarShipSofa website in the near future as Tony has book cover art for each months Aural Delights episodes.
