Before George Lucas’ Star Wars or George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones, there was Frank Herbert’s epic novel Dune. An inspiring science fiction story exploring a variety of themes including technology, ecology, politics and religion, Dune won the first Nebula Award for Best Novel in 1966 and has since inspired many artists to come.
Whether you’ve discovered Dune through Frank Herbert’s series or by watching the 1984 film directed by David Lynch, you can’t deny the impression this story has left in both the entertainment and creative industry. We’ve compiled a collection of concepts, illustrations and fan art inspired by the Dune universe and created by some of the artists previously showcased on CAW.
