Mahendra Singh is an illustrator with a keen interest in classic sci-fi novels and the original illustrations that brought those books to life. For the past decade Singh has been researching and producing drawings in the style of his favorite illustrators, specifically the ones who worked with Jules Verne, author of multiple classic novels including “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.”
Each of Singh’s drawings is created using a meticulous pen and ink method to achieve an accurate style reflecting classic sci-fi illustrations. In one series he incorporates direct quotes from the original illustrations to give hardcore Verne-geeks something to drool over.
Mahendra Singh’s recent work can be found in a novel by BSFA award-winning Adam Roberts, a novel called “20 Trillion Leagues Under the Sea” as well as in the book “Luminous Chaos” written by Jean-Christophe Valtat.
