Astounding & Terrible Art

Not a plea for Followers, but a reminder of why I fell in love with classic sci-fi art as a kid...gazing out the window at school imagining I was in another world, where robots and monsters roamed...

Analog Science Fiction & Fact

Yes, I do. As a kid I applied to join an art correspondence course, but was too young (11), and when I could join, having passed the test, I learnt that it cost money, which my father didn't have (or wasn't willing to part with). A man even came to our house to try and work out a payment plan. No chance. I still remember walking to the phone box with my sister, who made the call telling them I would not be joining their school. I cried. Perhaps I never recovered from this early blow to my confidence since I went on to despise school and learn nothing. The art world will never know what it lost...

  1. I'd love to see more by Crap Artist (who is clearly not a crap artist...)

  2. He's extremely reticent and recoils in horror at the thought of possibly being bought by Saatchi. Having been allowed access to his studio, however, I can confirm that his work is crap.
