Isaac Asimov - Foundations Trilogy | Cover Art

In May this year I was asked if I would like to illustrate the cover for a new (Italian) print of Isaac Asimov Foundations Trilogy, an offer I couldn't refuse. This is without doubt the most honourable request I've received as an artist who's been doing science fiction & space artwork since I was 13 years old, which is also how I began doing digital art. I received my own copy of the book this week and to see my artwork with Asimov's name is just insane to me! I had a lot of fun illustrating the cover even with the pressure I had doing it!

I uploaded more pictures of the cover in a Facebook post and the book can be found in the Mondadori Store.

Isaac Asimov has other important things to say such as "Bathroom Metaphor" to challenge reverse eugenic Malthusian religionist Atwoodian worship of childbirth pregnancies of genetic imperialism to breed golems to do there biding similar to Aldous Huxley's "London Central Hatchery and Conditioning Center" and George Orwell's "Artificial Insemination Anti-Sex League" .

"Science In Science Fiction" by Peter Nicholls and an vintage interview of Isaac Asimov has a commentary on how one can not have intelligent life on a small scale due to lack of complexity of neural synapse dendrite connections.

Also Isaac Asimov has an interesting commentary on dangers of believing in a religion and like Arthur C. Clarke often were often censored for opposition to back to nature environmentalist hippie craze of 1964 to 1974.

Thanks! I appreciate your kind words!
I looked at your work, I haven't done much sculpting myself but I can imagine it being a lot of fun. You're quite good at it! I enjoyed the diorama type of sculpts where there was a lot of things and details going on. Nice work!
