Alex Storer is an artist, musician and graphic designer based in Derbyshire, UK.
A lifelong interest in science fiction came full circle in 2010, when Alex finally began realising his own visions of future times and places. Taking inspiration from classic SF literature and the SF&F art greats of the 1970s and 80s, his work pays homage to yesterday’s visions of tomorrow, yet remains contemporary in style.
Alex’s H.G. Wells-inspired painting Awakening was included in Brave New Worlds: Utopias/Dystopias in London in 2011, and his work has previously appeared in ImagineFX Magazine, Computer Arts, Writing and Illustrating the Graphic Novel (Mike Chinn) and How to Draw and Sell Comics (Alan McKenzie). In 2017, he was commissioned to produce a unique piece of artwork (albeit a non-science fiction one!) that was presented to HRH Prince William The Duke of Cambridge. Alex regularly works with independent authors and publishers, creating unique cover art for science fiction and fantasy books.
Working under the name ‘The Light Dreams’, Alex has also been composing electronic instrumental music since 2006 under the name The Light Dreams, which frequently takes influence from literary SF. In 2012 he was invited to become honorary musician and artist for the Initiative for Interstellar Studies. His music is available for download on Bandcamp and for streaming on all major platforms.
