Cybertrunk — a silly illo by Ian Gunn



This elephant decided to go cyberpunk — I mean Cybertrunk. What can I say? Ian lived in the 80s, when windcheaters were blazoned with a punk Skippy standing in front of a brick wall bearing the slogan “Skippy Sucks”.

[cough] I may just have owned one. [cough]

Silly Illo artist Ian Gunn

Ian Gunn, creator of these silly illos (illustrations), was a much-loved award-winning artist based in Melbourne. Cancer took him from us too soon.

Ian left a legacy including lots of great illustrations. Many of these illustrations are available for sale.

Victoria’s science fiction convention, Continuum, occasionally presents the Ian Gunn Memorial Award recognising the ‘unsung heroes’ of fandom: people consistently working in the background who never expect any recognition of their efforts. This commemorates Ian’s selfless efforts to reach out to others, encouraging others and thereby building the science fiction community.

K’rin Pender-Gunn, Ian’s widow, gave Dark Matter Zine permission to republish Ian’s artwork. Thanks, K’rin!

Nalini is an award-winning writer and artist as well as managing editor of Dark Matter Zine.
