From Concept to Cover

Chris Foss has created some of the most iconic images in science fiction over the course of his 40-year career. He has painted covers for the books of Isaac Asimov, James Blish, Arthur C. Clarke, Philip K. Dick, and many more. TRSF is his first major U.S. commission in recent years, and this video shows how Foss developed the painting from the sketch of an idea to a gripping image.
