    Illustration for the short story The Sentinel by Arthur C. Clarke
The Sentinel
Illustration for the Italian magazine XL
The Sentinel is probably the best known short story by Arthur C. Clarke. Famous for being the one that 2001: A Space Odissey was somehow based on. When they asked me: "would you do some science fiction illustration?", I didn't imagine I was about to illustrate this! It was quite a bit of a challenge. While I love sci-fi and loved to illustrate this story, it gave me little to work with, so I had to get inside the characters and find the things the story doesn't tell you.
