This week's Focus is on famed cover painter, Alan Gutierrez. "Capturing the romance of space exploration" is how he defines his work, and that's a perfect description. Alan's work has been featured on the covers of magazines, books, games, and on display in galleries. His work even appeared many years ago here on io9.

As always, I invite you to look through his gallery. It's truly an impressive body of work. He paints everything from science fiction to fan-art.
