Soulburn Press is a Seattle based publishing house founded by artist Neil Blevins.


"The Story Of Inc" is a scifi story that centers around a man and his robot trying to survive on an almost waterless desert planet. Their lives get turned upside down when they come across a giant alien artifact that provides plentiful water, and a society that's built a settlement nearby who are not interested in sharing the resource.

A Narrative Artbook, "The Story Of Inc" contains a compelling story paired with beautiful artwork illustrating the key moments. Written by Neil Blevins, Bill Zahn & Stephan Bugaj, the 168 page book contains well over 200 paintings, sketches, & 3d renders from 11 professionals in the film and videogame industry including Neil Blevins, Bill Zahn, Stephan Bugaj, Jeremy Cook, Dominic Qwek, Chris Stoski, Jeremy Vickery, Christina Davis, Heidi Taillefer, Gio Nakpil, Mohammad Modarres & Nathan Fariss.

Neil loves to draw spaceships! In this first collection of sketches by professional artist Neil Blevins, he puts aside his digital tools and gets back to his roots of pen and paper, exploring the shapes and configurations of the small-crew spacecraft in a series of 119 doodles. Also included is a discussion of his process and tools that can give the younger artist important tips on starting their own traditional pen and ink practice.

Hopefully these sketches inspire you as much as the spaceships of the ‘70s and ‘80s inspired a young Neil growing up in a pre-digital age.
