Coverart for German Magazine "Alien Contact"

Artwork: "Master of the Negasphere".

Alien Contact surely is the most important and best
Magazine of Germany, and I`m quite happy that its editors, Hardy Kettlitz and Gerd Frey, are big fans of my art.

"20 years SF art of Franz H. Miklis”

This is the title of this years calender, produced by Europes most important SF Club, the Science Fiction Club Germany.

The club was founded in the fifties and has more than 500 members.

Title of the artwork: Menschenhauch 2.

"Garden of the Pope" is the translation of "Clos du Pape". This is the title of a new grand wine of Bordeaux. The etiquette was designed by me and is a variation of a wall painting I´ve painted some years ago on the wall of a winery in La Brede (Bordeaux) where pope Clemes V lived back in the 14th century.

It was a big fun working in France and living in a grand old house, maybe sleeping even in the bed where a pope had slept. (The wall painting is quite popular in this region and saw positive critics in French newspapers and on tv).
