Chances are that you seen Michael Whelan’s Art before without really realizing it. Mr. Whelans been working as a  illustrator for the last 35 years and chances are that you’ve seen a book cover or record with his art work on it. He also has a new web site which floored me. I spent at least 1 hour going through his galleries, recognizing the art work from book covers from, books that I had read as a teenager, thinking that was a cool picture on the cover. He was the first living artist to be inducted into the “!Science Fiction Hall of Fame” in 2009. He works mostly in acrylic paint, shying away from digital painting. But instead of me rambling, checkout his new web page.
