lives in Lancashire in a house that is bigger on the inside
than on the outside. He illustrates for a number of science
fiction magazines, most notably Interzone,
where he has topped the reader's poll as favourite artist many
times. He also won the 1997 British Science Fiction Award for
best artwork. Work on comic strips includes 'ABC Warriors' for
2000AD, an adaptation of the Clive Barker Hellraiser story 'Original
Sin', and most recently architectural backgrounds for Bryan
Talbot's graphic novel 'Heart of Empire'.
Porter is a self taught artist, living and working in South
Yorkshire. Although he has been known to paint the real world
when offered sufficient inducement, he prefers to create his
own surreal worlds where the landscape merges with its inhabitants,
and the divisions between fauna and flora become indistinct.
He too has illustrated for Interzone,
among other publications.
