Starburst Magazine Covers
Posted 5 years ago and submitted by Paul Loudon | Share link:


I have been freelance illustrating for many years now and have always been interested in getting regular clients and not just those who say they’ll keep me on record if anything else comes up! As a bit of a geek it makes me happy that I can now say that I regularly illustrate the cover of Starburst Magazine “The world’s longest running magazine of cult entertainment.”

This was down to more than just a pinch of luck; a good friend of mine works there. Like they say “it’s not what you know, it’s who.” That said, I do like to think that my own talent might be keeping me in this position. So far, I have illustrated four “collectors’ edition” covers and (hopefully) counting…

So far these are: Planet of the Apes (issue 402), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (issue 403), Batman (issue 406) and Robots of Sci-Fi (issue 409).

Really hoping to get that Star Wars cover later this year… !

Paul Loudon created approximately 90 artworks for me for a series of children’s reading books. The brief was to create a set of characters in a naturalistic style to complement a more graphic approach within the books. We were extremely happy with the work Paul carried out and how well he hit the marks of the brief. His approach was considered and sympathetic to the series style and age-appropriate. His work was well-timed and amends were carried out promptly. I would definitely work with Paul again.
