    Is John working on Discovery? I don't recall noticing for sure. I know there is a book on his drawings you can buy at Amazon.

    He worked on the first season. I don't know about season 2 or if he working on Picard.

    I heard he quite STD after he was asked on Facebook why the Enterprise was so different and he said they were told to make it 25% different.
    Then a few days later CBS came out and said that was a lie. But that just a rumour.

    I got that book very interesting though with the amount of work he done on Trek it could have been double or triple the size. A lot of stuff he posted on his blog was not in the book.

    He did work on the Godzilla movie that just came out.

    Yeah, I have that book too. He indeed did a lot of work early on Discovery, and he also designed the Enterprise for later in the season. But, he also does a lot of movie work, as Freak said. In fact, he had just finished up work on Spider-Man: Homecoming when he got the call for Discovery.

    Hell, his book from Generations and First Contact is thicker and it only covers two movies. But, I still like the newer book too. John has definitely had a great career as a very prolific concept artist.

    Does anyone know if all his stuff is just hand drawn and painted, or does he know 3D software like we do?

    As far as I know, all of John's stuff is done by hand. Everything I've ever seen from him for SOTL has been hand drawn and painted. Beautiful work, he's a great artist. :)

    He did start off as a physical modeler, though. His first Star Trek work was as a model maker in Greg Jein's model shop in Star Trek V.

    I think he did dabble in it in the mid 00's but nothing professional, but he could not get into it. He was always amazed with the stuff the fan community posted and visited this site to have a look. (I even got him to come on as a consultant for the SFM 3D film project we where working on, but alas shortly after the project fell though.)
    I think he posted a one or two render of Treks ships he was blocking out on his blog, but did not go feather than that.
