White Cloud Worlds volume 2 is out November 2nd – and I’m in it!!

White Cloud Worlds Volume Two is the second in a series of books that showcase stunning science fiction and fantasy artwork from New Zealand, ‘The Land of the Long White Cloud’. It is the follow up to the award winning publication of the same name.
White Cloud Worlds Volume Two is a visually rich publication that explores the worlds created by 41 New Zealand artists based here and abroad. Each artist is profiled with a selection of their art accompanied by text written in their own unique voice, sharing their origins, inspirations and a rare glimpse into how they work.
This beautiful hard cover book includes illustration, concept design, 2D and 3D sculptural pieces alongside comic pages and anime characters. White Cloud Worlds Volume Two contains 148 pages of imagery that challenges and inspires.
Ten years ago the spotlight turned to New Zealand science fiction and fantasy artists with the release of The Lord of the Rings trilogy. From this time genre art in New Zealand and overseas has gone from strength to strength and is now based firmly in the mainstream with kiwi artists working with some of the most prestigious movie, gaming and comic names in the business such as Weta Workshop, Valve, Blizzard Entertainment and Marvel Comics. White Cloud Worlds Volume Two shares the work these very same artists do in their own time.
White Cloud Worlds Volume Two also includes written contributions from two of the world’s leading masters of the imagination – acclaimed artists, designers and writers Iain McCaig and Wayne Barlowe.
White Cloud Worlds Volume Two celebrates not only the skill of the artists but the breadth of their imaginations. From the beautiful to the bizarre, frightening to fantastical, allow yourself a break from the mundane and get lost in the visually rich creations showcased in this book. You might not want to leave!
White Cloud Worlds Volume Two is edited and art directed by Paul Tobin. Paul is the creator of the White Cloud Worlds series and a senior concept designer at Weta Workshop.
White Cloud Worlds Volume Two is published by Ignite Inc and distributed in New Zealand and Australia by Harper Collins. It will be in all good bookstores from November the 2nd.
