How to Draw Sci-fi Heroes and Villains
From Monacelli Studio/Phaidon, 2023. 220 pages, fully-coloured, richly illustrated, featuring 2 stunning 3-page foldouts. With additional narrative text by Jacqueline Ching.
How to Draw Sci-fi Heroes and Villains is the sequel to my 2016 How to Draw Sci-fi Utopias and Dystopias. The book is all about brainstorming and designing outlandish characters--humans, aliens, robots, cyborgs, the works. My basic approach was to create two teams of nine characters each--the Alpha Union (good guys) and the Omega Legion (bad guys). The result is a gorgeous, giftable book for those 12 and up--but anyone who loves sci-fi will dig this. It's centrepiece is 2 3-page foldouts showing both teams in glorious action.
