|Description*:||Welcome to the First Day of Your Bad Job…|
Words you will never hear in real life but happen every day. We a think of the future being this lovely techno-utopia where peace and intelligence reign supreme over society. Where all our highest ideals and plans for generations to come can reap the unlimited benefits from. Where even the crappiest vending machines can produce the the most decadent morsels of endless delights. Ahhh the glorious future indeed!
Too bad our main character ended up in the opposite day universe.
Cry for poor Stellar Babe and her friends.
Dear Michael Whelan…
How we get to Stellar Babe in one easy scenario. It was the early 90’s and I was part of a company called DOC’S GAMES, which had made a line of micro RPG and boardgames, Dinky Dungeons © being the core system. One of the games was a Sci-Fi product called Small Space© (written by Craig Sheeley). One of the supplements we were getting ready to do was a book of powered NPC space heroes. Doc (Denton Elliott) and myself were dividing the creative duties on the various characters. That night on the early version of the SciFi, now SyFy channel was a special on book cover artist Michael Whelan. Mr Whelan is a really talented cover guy, definitely a high end talent like Olivia, Alex Schomburg, the Bros Hilderbrandt, etc…
Well, being a more inexperienced artist, this was a good thing to catch since he was covering not only techniques, but the industry as well. It was a really good show to be honest. At the end of this was a gallery of his cover art being run as a slideshow while he did a voiceover. I can’t quote it, but it went kinda like this.
“As an artist from this time period it’s good that we have finally evolved beyond the usual stereotypes in art for the covers of Sci-fi and fantasy books. The days of scantily clad women in skintight spacesuits with bubble helments and rayguns being chased by googly eyed leery aliens are finally over and these books and their covers have now grown up!”.
