Since the 1970's the paintings of artist Michael Fishel have been seen worldwide as posters, prints, jigsaw puzzles and calendars. In 1976 his art was published by the Big O poster co. U.K. along side artists Roger Dean, Rodney Matthews, Robert Venosa, Mati Klarwein and H.R. Giger among others. During the 1980's Michael illustrated RPG books for TSR Hobbies better known now of course as Dungeons & Dragons and later he painted cover art for books by H.P. Lovecraft and Richard Adams. Michael's painting's were created to be enjoyed by everyone young or old, so sit back, relax, dream a little and let yourself wander through the wonderful enchanting worlds of this extraordinary artist. -
Wow! New paintings...Classic Cars and Classic Americana. A lot of great things have been happening lately! I have gone into some exciting new directions with my art work. My new paintings Fred's Service Station, my new painting Dream Garage and my painting Groovy Records as well as my painting from 1976 Discovery Island were all just licensed exclusively for 30 x 24 in. jigsaw puzzles for 2017 and 2018 by the Springbok-Hallmark puzzle company which I'm extremely happy about. Springbok puzzles have been in the puzzle business for over 50 years in the U.S. and produce the highest quality puzzles in the business. I'm very honored to have my art selected by such a prestigous company to be published! Just click on the images here or Springbok Puzzles.com to check them out!...Onward & Upward!
I'm very excited to tell everyone here on my website about a new book of my art that I've published under the Big Vision Publishing imprint titled "Michael Fishel – Creations". After the success of my 2014 Big Vision published book "The Art Of Big O - Foreword by Roger Dean" I decided that I would produce a book of my own art next. The book is a beautiful 8.5 x 11 in. 74 page hardcover version that includes my own written story of my art career, my artwork, illustrations and paintings over the past 40 years concentrating mainly on my Big "O" U.K. poster art from the 1970's, my 1980's Dungeons & Dragons book illustrations and my reproduced images that were licensed for various products to companies over these many years such as on posters, jigsaw puzzles and book covers, calendars and greeting cards up until the present day. The information on how to order is contained within the links on the cover and page images shown below. You can also order it direct from me at a discounted price right here: Michael Fishel - Creations Book. Or if you wish you can order your book by simply sending me an email here: email@example.com I Hope you enjoy it as much as I did producing it!
NEW! The Art of Big O reprint is coming soon! The new book will be titled "It Must Be Art" with a foreword by artist Roger Dean.

Calendars, Calendars, Calendars! I'm very proud to announce that I've just secured a 2019 Calendar deal with Flametree Publishing for the great sci-fi and fantasy book and magazine illustrator Virgil Finlay. The 2018 calendar of his art I arranged last year has sold extremely well and it's only been released a short while. I've loved Finlay's art since I was a kid. Many thanks to Lail Finlay the daughter of Virgil Finlay who has allowed me to represent her father's art to the publishing trade. Here's what the front and back covers will look like for both years!
I'm pleased to announce the launching of my website Big Vision Publishing. I created this website to have a single online location available to showcase to potential clients not only a wide variety of my own art but the art work of some of the truly exceptional artists of the world that I have become affiliated with over the years who have allowed me to represent their art to be licensed to the publishing trade. You will also see here all of the great art books that are now and will continue to be published under the Big Vision Publishing imprint.
My philosophy with Big Vision Publishing on the licensing and selling of art is different than most I would say. It is based primarily on my 40 plus years of experience as an artist and having my work published as posters, calendars and jigsaw puzzles myself. I believe that lifetime of experience allows me to deal with and understand the needs of the artists (as well as the publishing companies) much better than the average artist agent might. I know the difference between a great artist proof and a terrible one, I know what is and is not a proper and fair royalty rate for an artist to receive. When it involves the preparation of a print ready image to the publishing companies I know what needs to be done and how to go about doing it. I completed 5 years of college in 2008 and received my degree in Digital Communication focusing on all of the Adobe Creative Suite programs, Photoshop, Dreamweaver (web coding and design), InDesign (digital publishing) and Digital Animation.
Simply put if you are a publisher of art and you are seeking to find positively stunning, jaw dropping powerful beautiful art for your products that will come to you in ultra-premium high resolution images from some of the premier artists in the world available to the publishing industry then look no further than Big Vision Publishing and Image Licensing. So, relax, take a leisurely browse through each of these extraordinary artists's galleries and if you see any image in them you would be interested in licensing for a product I'd love to hear from you!
