Fridge Magnet by Tom Godfrey

Lucky me :) Yay! I got to do the cover art for issue 35 of the
Andromeda Spaceways
magazine. Enough time has passed since publication for me put the drawing onto rb. It is a great mag, so if your interest has been tweaked, pop along to their site and get the online version. The story this image relates to is by Lettie Prell and is entitled, “Earth For Dummies”.

My artwork ranges from the traditional, to the slightly offbeat.

With the wildlife and landscape, paintings, I like a more photo-realistic approach, with light, colour, emotion and a sense of space, being key components.

My cartoons are a little quirky, with themes and styles varying according to mood.

    LMAO – that is soooo funny. He should have read the guide before trying out the ol wasabi (then again, I got caught by it with my early forays into sushi land too). It’s a wonderful work, Tom. Just fantastic. Love the concerned look on the teddy bear!!!!

  • I have never tried it, but it was a main feature in the story, so I had to include it. The visiting aliens were normally quite friendly, but they needed to feed late at night and had a weakness for Wasabi, which had unfortunate consequences for family pets and little humans :)

    Congrats, Tom. Very nice. What I like most about your artwork is your ability to entertain the eye with humor; very creative, and it makes you think more about what is happening in the picture. :-)

  • Thanks Mr Thoughtful. I do try to keep a sense of fun, even with the scarier pics.

    What a fantastic creative mind you have Master Tom, and, fortunately for us, you have that special skill to put it onto paper. Apart from all else your matery of light and shadow is brilliant. Is that jelly quivering naturally or in fright?

  • Thanks Sir Brian. Probably from fright and from being prodded. :)
