Thumbnails: 30 Second Interviews

Bruce Jensen has been creating covers for science fiction books since the mid 80s. Even though he came into the field during an age of hyper-realistic "scene" illustration, Bruce's work was more abstract and conceptual. His current work harkens back to the great illustrators of the 60s -- Paul Lehr, Richard Powers, etc -- while maintaining a fresh and contemporary sensibility. Bruce has also worked as an artist for 60 Minutes, creating the backdrop graphics for news stories.


What is your favorite painting within the last year?

Neal Asher’s Brass Man. Or perhaps this (below) which is really a study for a series of paintings I hope to get started on soon, an alien menagerie.


A career highlight?

The cover assignment for Do Andriods Dream of Electric Sheep. I’m a huge fan of Philip K. Dick’s work, and Bladerunner is a favorite film of mine, despite it’s loose adaptation of Do Andriods Dream. Getting the chance to offer up my own interpretation when Del Rey Books decided to drop the film related artwork was a dream assignment. It just so happened that it was due on my birthday too.


Dream assignment?

Does anyone want to repackage all the P. K. Dick books?


What are you working on now?

Slan Hunter
, the now completed (by Kevin J. Anderson) sequel to A. E. van Vogt’s landmark novel Slan.
