British Illustrator, Keith Thompson has been painting all his life. Although primarily thought of as a fantasy and science fiction illustrator, Thompson has never seen himself this way. The art he draws happens to be classified as such, but it is not his purpose to only draw genre art. Inspired by Japanese artwork, Thompson likes to combine various mediums into beautiful pictures that take fantasy art to a new level. His most recent work can be seen in the Victorian steampunk novel Leviathan. A wonderful book with brilliant black and white illustrations that really breath life into the novel.
