20 Trillion Leagues Under the Sea

Image area is 13" x 10". Acrylic Ink on Denril vellum (a translucent polypropylene, 3 mils thick). The entire picture was then sealed with Krylon Acrylic Workable Spray Fixatif. An epic SF book by one of the best SF authors around, BSFA-award-winning Adam Roberts. Almost every one of the 32, full-bleed drawings done for this book is either set inside a crowded submarine or an infinite, underwater exterior with few landmarks. It's a sequel to Verne's 20,000 Leagues and Mysterious Island and it's a cool mindbender involving an aquatic dimension existing beside our own spatial dimension in the larger spacetime continuum. Very Ptolemaic, which is much cooler cosmology than anything real. The American publisher did not put sufficient marketing muscle into this book, American SF fans need to know about Adam Roberts, he is unique.

Singh, Mahendra
Mahendra Singh is a freelance illustrator located in Montreal, Quebec. He is best known to comic fans for his work on the Adventure Time related books "The Adventure Time Encyclopedia" and "Adventure Time: The Enchiridion".

Mahendra Singh has a very unique illustration style that closely resembles traditional engraving. His beautiful images are created by using dip pens with English or German nibs onto Denril paper, a special type of vellum which never cracks/stretches/warps. The whole page is then treated with Krylon Spray Fix afterwards to further protect it. All of this combines to create a slightly textured, unique, and truly compelling work of original art.
