Welcome to Episode 7 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans. In this episode we interview artist Adam Paquette, whose work in the speculative fiction, gaming and other fields is both broad and deep. Adam discusses the creative process generally and specifically in his own work, focusing for a good part of the interview on how he developed his cover for Brad’s forthcoming novel The Winds of Khalakovo. If you enjoy the conversation, remember to check back in two weeks for Episode 8, where we’ll begin our next sequence of shows with a discussion of the work of N.K. Jemisin. Thanks as always for tuning in, and please continue to spread the word about the show!
Update from Brad: We’ve posted some of Adam’s wonderful artwork in our art gallery. Also, in the interview, Adam mentioned the early sketches of the cover art for The Winds of Khalakovo. I’ve posted the sketches and preliminary art he created for Winds on my blog.
