The mail just arrived with my contributor's copies of Structura: The Art of Sparth, a beautiful, 127 page book for which it was my honor and privilege to have written the introduction. Nicolas "Sparth" Bouvier is an amazing talent, working in both cover illustration and concept art, his work familiar to anyone who has seen or played Assassin's Creed. His style seems to fit comfortably at the midpoint of such greats as Stephan Martiniere and John Harris, while remaining completely his own.
Sparth did the cover of our own The Martian General's Daughter(which you can see on page 120 of the book), though if you look at page 26 at "Dune 1" you can see why I thought of him for Theodore Judson's book to begin with. I love his work, and hope & expect it will grace another Pyr cover coming your way again soon. Meanwhile, for more of his amazing artwork, go buy his book.
