Jeremy Geddes is a photo-realistic painter living and working in Melbourne, Australia. Having studied painting in the early 90s, Jeremy initially worked in video games as an art director. In 2003 he returned to painting full time and has since had his paintings published and exhibited around the world. Jeremy’s paintings are highly detailed and often take months to complete. He starts with a preliminary painting where composition, color and tone are resolved. Then the painting is drawn up and mapped out using washes of color before painting begins. Once the main painting is completed he applies glazes and altering tones, adding depth to color and texture. He has illustrated for comic book covers, in collaboration with friend Ashley Wood. Geddess won the Spectrum Gold Award for his cover art for the comic, Doomed. His children's picture book, The Mystery of Eilean Mor, was shortlisted for The Aurealis Awards, won The Crichton Award, and was named as one of CBC Notable Books in 2006. Jeremy is most well-known for his paintings of cosmonauts floating in empty landscapes.
