From the illustrated book "Earthblood" by Keith Laumer & Rosel George Brown, commissioned and published by Blue Jay Books, 1984

Queen Christina 2
From the 1933 film with Greta Garbo. Drawn in 1976-78

She played the life of Queen Christina of Sweden (1632-54)

The second of 2 drawings. The first;

www.deviantart.com/alangutierr…

Originally done as a pencil drawing (B & W) in 1976, I tried to redo it as a colored pencil drawing in 1978-this time using color in the shading.

It never got finished. Just her face and some of the background.

Recently, through Photoshop, I combined elements of each drawing to recreate the colored version as I intended.

Artist | Professional | Digital Art

I'm a Sci-Fi artist, but I've done fantasy, new age, glamour, contemporary, science, and anime fanart, since 1976.

I retired just recently (2018), and there are over 700 works from all the above genres, and more!

One of my favorite authors, Sci-fi legend Jack Williamson (1908-2006), did a bio of me in 2002, so, I'll let him speak for me here;

"Alan Gutierrez has done the cover paintings for a number of my novels. I'm happy with them, and happy with this chance to write a few words about his life and work. Born in Kansas City, MO, in 1958, he grew up in Southern California. He was still in his teens when his passion for science fiction was inspired by a collection of Analog and Fantasy and Science Fiction magazine covers, by such great pioneers of the genre as Frank Kelly Freas, Rick Sternbach, and Alex Schomberg. Suddenly, he says, "I simply knew what I wanted to do with my life." He has done it, graduating from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA, and receiving his BFA in illustration in 1982.

Before graduation, He made his first cover sale to a small fanzine, "Rigel" that paid him $100. He says it was printed in ghastly two tone scheme with purple, "but I was very excited." His star climbed higher in 1983, when Tor Books assigned him to do the cover for The Lagrangists by Mack Reynolds. He worked almost nonstop with cover art until the mid-list market collapsed in the 90's. He fell in love with the southwest, and moved to Arizona, married his wife Rhonda, and had two daughters, Rachel, now eleven, and Monica, five. He survived hard times by doing game trading cards and covers for Popular Mechanics. He says a typical cover takes him two or three weeks. First of all, he reads the manuscript to get a feel for it. He says he always is thinking of the "man on the street" who isn't already familiar with the future worlds of science fiction.

Speaking of his fine cover for my own Ultimate Earth which he did in the December 2000 Analog, he says he tried to "make the strange familiar, and the familiar strange." That technique reflects the wonder that set the course of my own life back in the 1920's, when I discovered the classic science fiction of H.G. Wells, A. Merritt, and Edgar Rice Burroughs reprinted in the old Amazing Stories. I'd grown up on a little sand-hill ranch in the semi-desert of Eastern New Mexico. Life had looked limited and futureless. Those stiff gray pulp pages dazzled me with visions of a limitless future I'd never imagined. Tales of travel in space, and time, and possible new worlds better than our own. Sadly, that sense of wonder is hard to recover now. I've known scores of veteran fans who cherish the same fond recollections and fail to find it in so much of recent science fiction. Those dazzling new ideas are no longer new. Now they're the too-familiar stuff of the Saturday morning kiddy shows. The futures they forecast are already here, but they came at a cost.

Atomic science promised us limitless free power and gave us the nuclear bomb. Rocket science promised the stars and gave us the ballistic missile. Whole generations have survived the cold war and "the balance of terror." Yet the sense of wonder does live on. The universe of what we know is still expanding, faster in fact that it ever did. Exploring the frontiers between the world we know and the worlds we imagine is still an exciting game. Alan Gutierrez has the vision to make those futures real and the craft to show them to us all.

--Jack Williamson, April 2002"
After years of posting art here on DA, I've decided to post some of the original printed art, from the hundreds of cover and interior works here.

It is only a sampling of about 40 published works, but includes some new art, not seen before...

They include;

A "controversial" 1982 cover for Rigel Magazine-a case of being TOO accurate to the story...

Graphic (type) art (Moonsword) I designed which was incorporated into the published cover, and one that never made it...

A poem (Magic Fairy Hope) that was written especially for one of my early fanarts, included in the art.

The one printed cover (In Another Country) which only made it to the "flat" stage, never to be published with my art.

I finally got to see it! Takes forever to load...

Yes, that gallery is 17 years old! I was probably looking for a new one when Mediaminer ended, then I came here.

Don't know if I'll post anything else there. I don't have access to the admin. Hope they get my note...

Not sure exactly what you mean...

There are only a very few space works left. A couple of battles I think.
