2010 Update.

It's about time for an update. I would have so much to say, but i'd have the page filled in no time. For the same reason, i'll select things at a more reasonable pace. First of all the blog has been revamped. i apologize if anything weird pops up, but i'm so bad at these things. I lost all my links for now, but will update as soon as possible.

Structura - The art of Sparth, will be available very soon. The first print has been sold out for quite a few months now, but no worries, DesignStudioPress, Amazon as well as other retailers will have it very soon. i'd like to give a big thanks to those who have been waiting to obtain a copy. i did my best to reply to your emails concerning the fact Structura was nowhere available.

Microsoft and 343Industries released Halo: Evolutions - Essential Tales of the Halo Universe, a few days ago. The book is now in stores. My friend Robogabo and myself, shared the work for the book art, and both have contributed to several images. Robogabo did the front cover as well as two pieces inside. I did two black and white images for the inside pages too.

Back in November, SFsignal did another one of these book cover "smackdown". It's always a neat exercise. This time, they were featuring a cover i did last year for Paul McAuley's Gardens of the Sun, a book that will be out around march 2010. In the same style as "the quiet war", the image is mainly a funky depiction of spaceship epicness.
Last but not least, i've been going more and more into photography during these last months, and i am planning to build an even stronger link between conceptart and photo works, not to forget about all the post processing work that goes with it. I hope you'll enjoy my photos as much as my illustrations. oh, and most important: a Happy new Year to all of you!

Looks great Sparth! Happy new year!



A graphic novel in the style of those two B&W illos could be amazing

Funny how I get equally jealous and inspired by my recent discovery that you're not only one of my favorite concept artists but also a talented photographer. Great work!
If only you would update this blog more often, but I guess I'm a bit guilty in that respect myself.

Amazing black and white, great lines! I'd like to see a comic like this!
Sorry for the double comment...

I was so eager for an update! As always, your work is beautiful and awe-inspiring. Great to see you branching out and I can't wait to see what comes of it. I just wish Amazon had a bigger image of your 'Gardens of the Sun' cover, as it looks absolutely epic. Glad I picked up a copy of Structura while I had a chance. Keep us inspired and Happy New Year!


I love this old comic book raster look
