Strange New Worlds by Josh Lane
Josh Lane is a freelance illustrator and designer who prides himself on the fact that his work “is heavily influenced by all things geeky.” That includes science fiction, videogames, toys and comics. And Lane, who cheekily goes by the name Josh Ln., credits his love for both art and technology for helping him forge his vision and style. Lane has created pieces celebrating Star Trek, Star Wars, Tron, Serenity, Ghostbusters, RoboCop, the board game Operation, and more. In his comic-strip-like “Hero-Glyphics” series, he put popular comic-book and sci-fi heroes into hieroglyphic form. Lane jokes that, fueled by coffee and his imagination, he’ll probably be creating right up until his brain is removed and placed into an android body, at which point he’ll become a superhero. He lives in Kansas City, Missouri.
