Erreth Unfor


Erreth is an oblique reference to the Earthsea Cycle by Ursula LeGuin. Although this isn't a location from the books, I like to think it has something in common tonally with the world she created. Read everything you can get your hands on by LeGuin. The quality of her fiction cannot be overstated.

This fits the LeGuin mood well, nice piece, same for the Zelazny.
Would love to see your science fiction reading list sometime.

This and your last one is very nice. Do you have any videos uploaded showing a bit of process? I'd love to see how you tackle paintings like this one.
The architecture in all of these look especially nice.

Thanks, guys.

Nathan: Ursula LeGuin (everything), Gene Wolfe (everything), Sam Delany (Neveryon, Stars in my Pocket& Dahlgren), Neil Stephenson (the classics & Anathem), China Mieville (everything), Zelazny short stories and a little Moorcock. On the mainstream side, Borges, David Foster Wallace and M. Atwood.

Wes.W: I'm doing one of those 4pg workshops w/ vids for the (next) pulp art themed issue of Imagine FX.
