Welcome to the first update to the Megstructures book project! Megastructures will be a visual encyclopedia of scifi megastructures, everything from orbiting space habitats to solar system spanning stellar engineering projects. Each structure will include a scientific explanation, followed by paintings and diagrams that bring the concept to life.
The project started back in 2015 with my first illustration based on Larry Niven's Ringworld. But I was busy finishing my first book, "The Story Of Inc", and so "Megastructures" got put on the backburner for awhile. After Inc was released in 2018, I returned to the megastructures project. 2019 was
"The Story Of Inc", a scifi narrative artbook, hardcover, 168 pages with well over 200 paintings by 11 professional artists in the film and videogame industry, including Neil Blevins, Bill Zahn, Stephan Bugaj, Jeremy Cook, Dominic Qwek, Chris Stoski, Jeremy Vickery, Christina Davis, Heidi Taillefer, Gio Nakpil, Mohammad Modarres, and Nathan Fariss. A story of a man and his robot trying to survive on an almost waterless desert planet. After a successful kickstarter in 2017, the book is now for sale and ready to ship! Order your copy today!
I have a concrete update for those of you have have purchased my book "The Story of Inc".
After getting through the backlog of Chinese New Year, and a final fix to the covers of the premium edition, our boat left China on April 01, 2018 and will be arriving at Los Angeles port on April 15, 2018. From Los Angeles, shipment will move by truck to the Amazon warehouse in Kansas, the truck trip and customs will take approx 1.5 weeks. Then it'll take 3 days to process at Amazon, then I provide amazon the list of people to send the book to and they start shipping the books to everyone. So we have forward movement!
Thanks everyone for waiting, now t
I'll consider it. One of the issues I'm running into is there are a bunch of structures that are very similar, but with a slight modification, and it's tough to tell when someone deserves a brand new painting or just to be noted in another's text.
