How to Draw Sci-fi Utopias and Dystopias from The Monacelli Press, September 2016.  208 pages, full color, richly illustrated throughout.

A year in the making, this is an art book, an instruction manual, a meditation on the nature of sci-fi, and a visual feast for any lover of sci-fi and sci-fi imagery.  Organized around the perrenial distinction between the two ways in which we represent the future--hopeful and bleak, utopian and dystopian--the book is packed with over 30 in-depth demos on drawing land and space vehicles, humans and robots, aliens, citiscapes and more.  The reader is carried through the process of brainstorming, sketching, finishing drawings in pencil and ink, and digital coloring.  And for beginners, there's an introductory chapter on the basics of drawing.

Whether you're an aspiring artist or know one, or just a lover of sci-fi, this beautiful, giftable book is for you!
