Mark A. Garlick is a British freelance artist, science illustrator and writer. His art has been featured internationally in many books and popular astronomy and science magazines. Artist says: I am a professional illustrator and author, working freelance and specialising in science fiction, technology and space. I came into the profession with a scientific background, establishing my business in late 1996. Since then I have written and illustrated four of my own books, and my images have appeared in their hundreds in other books, publications and in advertising. I use mainly Photoshop, either importing elements from photos or hand-drawing from scratch with a graphics pad. I use 3D also (e.g. 3DS Max, Terragen) but sparingly. And sometimes I work in acrylic or pastels. I am a member of the Society of Authors, and an elected Fellow of the International Association of Astronomical Artists (IAAA).
