This beautifully rendered, space inspired painting was sent to us by Ireland's Dermot Power. Currently residing in London, Dermot is a movie concept artist who began his career as a comic artist for British anthology 2000AD in 1990. He moved over to movies in 97 and since then has served as a character designer and conceptual artist on films such as Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, the Harry Potter series, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Batman Begins, Beowulf, V for Vendetta amongst others. Dermot just finished working with Tim Burton on Disney's soon to be released Alice in Wonderland. He is currently enjoying some rare downtime and using it to get his blog comic in good shape (featuring the pair in the painting above) and update his website.
