Artist Showcase - Tom Kidd

BACK TO INDEX

Tom Kidd has worked for a number of publishers: Baen Books, Random House, DAW books, Warner Books, Doubleday, Ballantine Books, Marvel Comics and Tor Books. He has illustrated two books: "The Three Musketeers" (1998 - William Morrow) and "The War of the Worlds" (2001 - Harper Collins), and there are two books of his art: "The Tom Kidd Sketchbook" (1990 - Tundra) and "Kiddography: The Art & Life of Tom Kidd" (2005 - Paper Tiger). A gallery featuring this book appeared in the April 2006 issue of Realms of Fantasy. He has written two instructional books: "How to Draw and Paint Dragons" (2010 - Barrons) and "Otherworlds" (2010 - Impact Books).

His art has won him a World Fantasy Award (Best Artist 2004) and seven Chesley Awards.

Kidd has also done design work for film, theme parks, entertainment products, and all types of conceptual design work for such clients as Walt Disney, Rhythm & Hues and Universal Studios. His work has been displayed in a wide array of venues, including the Delaware Art Museum, the Society of Illustrators and the Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame.

His favorite and most time-consuming obsession is a unpublished book called "Gnemo: Airships, Adventure, Exploration." This is the sort of stuff that makes him happy.

Note: Tom Kidd's work will be exhibited at LoneStarCon 3 by Northern Star Art.
