I survived Snowmageddon! Honestly it wasn’t too bad here. The other side of the state – Boston – got at least twice the snowfall we got out here. No, it’s not the snow that hit us bad, it was the thaw! Ice dams on the roof edge piled water back under the “roof glacier” and caused it to drip down into the ceiling. The upper surface of my studio office now looks and smells like the site of a horrific rodent holocaust.

But hey – the plus side is Spring 2016 is well on its way to hatching, with green sprouts and chipmunks making their appearance in the front yard. I spent most of the last four weeks on a couple of book covers. First is the cover for “Star Trek: Seekers 4” (#3 hasn’t even had it’s public rollout yet, but we should be getting close!), which is probably due for publication late in the year. Second is a cover for Allen Steele’s new SF short story collection for Fantastic Books, “Tales of Time and Space”, due out in one month from now. I’ll be posting the cover art shortly.

With almost 25% of the year now gone by, I have little progress to report on my personal  creative goals for the year: becoming productive with modeling (using Hexagon) and writing my first real SF short story. But there’s still time… providing I don’t get too distracted by political clown circus gearing up to roll into Everytown USA this year.

While I haven’t been too productive on DA in the last couple of months, there's plenty of other folks that have been stokin’ the creative firestorm with their own cool stuff. Check it out!!!

Rob-Caswell's Profile Picture

Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
I am a child of the Space Age and a largely self-taught artist.... but the best way to learn is by doing, and I've been at it since I could lift a pencil. Throw in a lifelong passion for astronomy, sci-fi, and scale modeling, and there you have it - the ingredients for Caswell Stew. Though my educational background is in hard science, my professional career has been a meandering path through many graphics/creative roles (illustrator, writer, editor, computer game design, photography, web design, etc, etc...). For the time being I've settled on "digital print maker".

I live in a beautiful corner of the US Northeast with my wife, two hamsters, and a constantly changing cast of wildlife in the yard. I have no super powers… that I can reveal.

Hey man!
Thanks for the fav, always nice to get one from one of my teachers.
That guy below there says something about Clarke's Tsien. Is that in the pipeline?
I'd really like to see you guys give that one the Leonov treatment.
Anyway, thanks again, my friend.

Hey Rob, thank for the likes and the Watch - very kind of you!

Assume that it also means you survived snowmaggedon (relatively) unscathed! ;-)

Oh yeah.... no real problems.... aside from a now leaking roof from snow melt! :p

I'm amazed you got away that lightly - from the pictures I saw, you guys had a ton of the stuff fall on you!

Oh to be 12 years of age again, eh? When those issues were for someone else to deal with - you were just able to go out and enjoy the snow!

The Eastern part of the state got it MUCH worse than we did. We got about 1/2 the snowfall that Boston did.
