Hi! How are you all? I've been pretty AWOL over the last half year. It wasn't a conscious decision, but rather driven by the fact that I just haven't been doing much art myself. I guess you could call it a creative dry spell. Whatever the case I'm hoping that it doesn't plague me too much longer. I appreciate all the varied "welcome back" messages folks have dropped me.

While I may not have much in the way of new stuff got show, I have been asked to be part of the digital art gallery for the Museum of Science Fiction's "Escape Velocity" event, in Washington, DC on July 1-3. Their own description of the vent is as follows: "Escape Velocity is part comic con, part science fair, where we’ll have amazing guests, discussion panels, technology demonstrations, workshops, costumes, parties, concerts and more. Escape Velocity seeks to make a measurable positive impact to boost informal learning on the more conceptually challenging academic areas." You can read more about the event, here:

Meanwhile, life goes on around me/us, hm? Gravity wave detections. Space-X rocket landings. New dinosaur species discovered almost every week and new finds illuminating their plumage. A new fundamental subatomic particle threatening detection. All told it's a damn exciting time to be alive, once you read past the melodramatic election and Brexit headlines. And there's still some damn fine artists makin' stuff on DA…. like these talented lads and lassies!! Click the thumbnails to explore deeper.

I am a child of the Space Age and a largely self-taught artist.... but the best way to learn is by doing, and I've been at it since I could lift a pencil. Throw in a lifelong passion for astronomy, sci-fi, and scale modeling, and there you have it - the ingredients for Caswell Stew. Though my educational background is in hard science, my professional career has been a meandering path through many graphics/creative roles (illustrator, writer, editor, computer game design, photography, web design, etc, etc...). For the time being I've settled on "digital print maker".

I live in a beautiful corner of the US Northeast with my wife, two hamsters, and a constantly changing cast of wildlife in the yard. I have no super powers… that I can reveal.

Far too many times, people's lives are improved by the efforts of others yet those people never recognize the efforts nor the others behind the efforts. I refuse to be one of those people. Therefore...

Mr. Caswell,

THANK YOU so very, very much for the literally decades of fun, happiness, and camaraderie your published artwork has supported for my friends and myself during our many Traveller campaigns. Your work not only dramatically improved our good times together, it inspired a number of us to continue into technology careers and to pay much closer attention to the sciences and NASA's space exploration programs. Solely because of the inspiration your work provided, I have personally contributed to the science projects on the Zooniverse website and to the search for asteroids to be targeted for exploration. Your amazing work has consistently lit the fire of my imagination and I will be eternally grateful for that.

God bless you.

Apologies for the response delay. I haven't been around the site much these last few months. But let me say... WOW! I'm honored... and tickled that my work could "pay it forward" from all the great artists who inspired me! Thank you SO much for sharing that with me and bringing a smile to my face and heart :)

I just want to say the illustrations in Star Wars: Planets of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 are amazing.  To me it's one of the most enjoyable and memorable Star Wars E.U. supplements.
