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 first 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 enchanting worlds of this extraordinary artist. -

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". You can order it here! Michael Fishel - Creations Book
After the success of my 2014 Big Vision published book "The Art Of Big O - Foreword by Roger Dean" I had decided that I would produce a book of my own art next. I have never had a book of my art published so it was about time!
The book itself is a beautiful 8.5 x 11 in. 74 page hardcover (and softcover version) that features my own written story of my art career, my artwork, illustrations, paintings and covers my personal life over the past 70 years.
The book concentrates on the most part on my Big "O" U.K. poster art from the 1970's, my 1980's Dungeons & Dragons book illustrations and also includes my art work over a 12 year period that features digital and mixed-media paintings that have been reproduced and licensed for many 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. I Hope you enjoy it!

It's a beautiful 8.5 in x 11 in. book filled with over 300 images of some of the greatest art to come out of the exciting 60's and 70's. I have completely re-designed the book giving it a light colored page design with different colored borders for each artist chapter.

The H.R. Giger chapter has been completely re-designed as well. Working closely with the H.R. Giger estate and Carmen Giger nearly every image in this chapter was replaced with high quality resolution images provided exclusively by the H.R. Giger estate including many new images of the Giger museum that were not in the first edition. The text was updated and edited by Nigel Suckling. The H.R. Giger chapter alone is woth the price of the book!
