PONCH FENWICK was born in Washington D.C. and lives in Maryland. A longtime fan of sci-fi, horror, and fantasy, Ponch has been a creative influence throughout his life. He spent 10 years in the military as an Intelligence Analyst and lived in Florida, Kansas, Indiana, and Arizona.
He’s the Technical Liaison Committee Head for Shore Leave Convention held in Hunt Valley, Maryland. In 1992, he became enthralled with Lightwave 3D and learned the program inside and out, completely self taught over the next 9 years. In 2001, Ponch created a first-place winning image for the Farpoint Convention’s art show. The piece, entitled “It’s A Good Day,” depicts three Klingon K’t’inga Class Warships in space. Ponch is also a Lifetime Member of Farpoint.
Ponch has been expanding his artwork ever since and has created over 150+ images from Star Trek, Babylon 5, Lost In Space,
Dr. Who, Firefly, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and more. His artwork was featured in the Harford County Cultural Arts Board’s venue for the month of July 2017. The “Art Without Boundries” display included two of his pieces. He is now delving into CG animations.
Ponch has also created book covers for authors such as Phil Giunta and Steven Wilson, with more to come. One such cover is from Steven Wilson’s second Arbiter Chronicles novel, Unfriendly Persuasion (pictured below).
So, if you go to Farpoint or Shore Leave conventions, stop by the Art Show room and take a look at some of his latest artwork… you won’t be disappointed!
