Isaac Asimov - Foundations Trilogy | Cover Art by GabrielBStiernstrom Isaac Asimov - Foundations Trilogy | Cover Art by GabrielBStiernstrom

In May this year I was asked if I would like to illustrate the cover for a new (Italian) print of Isaac Asimov Foundations Trilogy, an offer I couldn't refuse. This is without doubt the most honourable request I've received as an artist who's been doing science fiction & space artwork since I was 13 years old, which is also how I began doing digital art. I received my own copy of the book this week and to see my artwork with Asimov's name is just insane to me! I had a lot of fun illustrating the cover even with the pressure I had doing it!

I uploaded more pictures of the cover in a Facebook post and the book can be found in the Mondadori Store.

Thanks! I appreciate your kind words!
I looked at your work, I haven't done much sculpting myself but I can imagine it being a lot of fun. You're quite good at it! I enjoyed the diorama type of sculpts where there was a lot of things and details going on. Nice work!
