Starbright Illustrations

fan of latest book covers

This blog is about entertainment. It's about fantasy novels, 3D spaceships, role-playing games and stuff like that. Starbright likes to move about a bit, from fantasy, to sci-fi and even throw in a little bit of zombie-flavour horror here and there, or some big fat, wobbly creatures from the Cthulhu Mythos.

Another important thing to me is that I try to keep everything here diverse and inclusive. I read the Mary Sue, for example, a site that calls itself the nexus of pop and geek culture, which I love, and, just as importantly, they promote and celebrate diversity and the representation of women in this world, and work to make geekdom safe and open for everyone.

I'm interested in a bunch of stuff that is related to this geeky world, too. I read Love in the Time of Chasmosaurs, a blog about dinosaur art, science, and pop culture, with regular blogs about vintage dinosaur art, paleoart icons, and roundups of dinosaur news and blogging.

My name is Brett Fitzpatrick. I am a sci-fi and fantasy author of a slowly growing stack of elf-published books. I was born in the UK, near Newcastle, and I now live in Venice. I also create the covers for my books, which means painting using GIMP and creating 3D models with Blender.

I also self-publish role-playing games and spaceship supplements. The role-playing games have large numbers of illustrations. So lets go to the blog page and read some posts, or go to the portfolio page and look at some cool images.
