Trade Paperback – Baby Tattoo Books – Jul 2018

Escape to thought-provoking realms and explore awe-inspiring vistas with Michael Whelan’s “Beyond Science Fiction” art book.

Throughout a credentialed career spanning nearly 5 decades, Michael Whelan has successfully straddled the historically at-odds worlds of fine art and commercial illustration. HIs work represents a logic-defying blend of pop-culture-defining imagery and impassioned personal expression that resonates with sophisticated art collectors as well as with top professionals in genre media.

Michael Whelan’s significance as the architect of a unique genus of imaginative art that combines the detail-rich techniques of realist painting with the time-honored tradition of illustrating mankind’s dreams and aspirations, is at the forefront of defining and establishing “Alternative Realism” as a contemporary art movement.

In honor of Michael’s retrospective exhibition at the Riverside Museum of Art, Baby Tattoo is publishing a collector’s edition book in a popular 7″x10″ graphic novel size that will visually explore the interconnected nature of Michael’s work and will chronicle the significance of its place in history.
