About the Illustrators:
Hans Jenssen was born in Copenhagen and currently resides in Devon, England, with his partner, son, and various other mammals, poultry, and fish. In the intervening time, he learned to draw and paint with an obsessive attention to detail which clearly shows in a body of work which includes everything from cutting edge green technology to a certain well-known far away galaxy and most recently the HALO universe. He is an enthusiastic eater, drinker, and glider pilot but rarely does all three at the same time.
Back in 1999, John R. Mullaney had just returned from a summer working in Teletubbyland's art department when the phone rang inviting him to contribute additional artworks to Lucasbooks' Star Wars Incredible Cutaways series. A longtime fan of Hans Jenssen and Richard Chasemore's work in these books, John couldn't have been happier to oblige and contributed several pieces to the series. Since then he has been lucky enough to indulge his love of science-fiction cinema by producing studio-licensed cutaway art for franchises such as Alien, Firefly/Serenity, and Batman. He lives in Reading with his wife and two sons, who sometimes tolerate his loud music and bad puns.
