Gary Tonge is a British artist and futuristic concept illustrator that specializes in the space art, science fiction and fantasy. Artist says: For as long as I can remember I have been obsessed with space and my own recurring thoughts on what is out "there". And the older I become the more vivid my thoughts are. Just looking at a Hubble Space Telescope picture is a mind opening experience. These pictures show so much, yet we are so far away. I want to try and purvey what is, or could be out there from another perspective, not the isolated position we hold in the universe. There could be any manner of sights in the far reaches of space and I long to bring my interpretation of them to life for others to share.
