Sebastian Quigley was brought up on the South Coast of England and moved to London to study industrial design. After earning his degree, he moved into the field of illustration, specializing in the airbrush and concentrating on the subjects of space and technical illustration. A few years ago, the airbrush was replaced by a computer, and now almost all his pictures are produced as renders from 3D computer modeling. He has produced innumerable images for publishers around the world on a vast range of subjects from dinosaurs to anatomy, geology to shipwrecks, but space has always remained his firm favorite. He continues to live in London with his family, and has a passion for snow and water sports.
