Science fiction art, book cover illustration and music by Alex Storer
Welcome to my website. I am a UK-based artist / illustrator and musician, with a lifelong fascination with science fiction.
Science fiction opens windows into other worlds – it offers escape from the norm and provides glimpses of future times and places, both on Earth and beyond. As a cover artist, it is my job to realise visions of such worlds and forge that link between audience and concept.
When growing up, I was captivated by the science fiction, fantasy and space art of the 1970s and 80s – and from my first encounter with a computer mouse and digital paint program in 1990, to my current setup of an Apple Mac and graphics tablet, that influence has come full circle. Today, I enjoy creative collaboration with authors and publishers from all over the globe.
There is an inevitable convergence between art and my other passion – music. Both are like painting; one uses sounds, the other uses colours. I have been recording instrumental music under the name “The Light Dreams” since 2006, and was invited to be honorary musician for the Initiative for Interstellar Studies in 2012. All of my music is available via Bandcamp.
