I’ve got one response for this:

(Okay, I actually have more than one response, natch, so bear with me. Orbit Books is one of the few big SFF publishers that understands the value in building a brand for its authors. When they weren’t happy with Brent Weeks’ cover for The Black Prism, they recovered the whole series and created an eye-catching and instantly recognizable series on bookstore shelves. They’ve done so with James S.A. Corey’s The Expanse, and Ann Leckie’s Imperial Radch series. The packaging and branding for Daniel Abraham’s The Dagger and the Coin was never their finest work, but it was bold and the emblematic weapon (sword, axe, torch, shield and spear) were consistent and matched scale.

“Allie Strom has spent her entire life drawing things,” says the official website of the American artist, and that lifelong devotion to her art certainly paid off, with a diverse and imaginative portfolio of art. I think what stands out most about Strom’s art is that no piece looks like the last. From tone, to composition, to subjects, they’re unique and individual glimpses into the worlds of the artist’s imagination. Beautiful stuff.

You can find more of Strom’s art on her DeviantArt page, her personal portfolio, and on her progress Tumblr. I recommend spending some time this weekend with all the talented young artist has to offer. Her imagination is boundless.

Feeling a little cabin-fevery stuck here on Earth? Not rocket ship to take you to the stars and beyond? Estonian illustrator and graphic designer Kuldar Leement can help you out. His gorgeous science fiction art mixes startling imagery with bold, high-contrast colours, and the ability to transport you to the furthest edges of the universe, where boundless imagination lives. The first image, titled “Curiosity” is particularly striking. Leement created as an homage to NASA.

You can find more of Leement’s art on his online portfolio and his DeviantArt gallery.
