The members of the Visual Effects Society (VES) make their living creating the stunning visual effects we see on the big and small screen. Though they gain recognition and satisfaction contributing to the mesmerizing effects for movies, TV and games, they're all too frequently bringing someone else's vision to life. VESAGE showcases the art that the VES members create when they're not at work on visual effects. It offers a unique insight into the personal creativity of the people behind some of the most-recognized imagery in the world.

VESAGE was first conceived as an opportunity for VES members to see the creative endeavours of their fellow members. With the help of the VES Education Committee, key VES members and an Advisory Board, Ballistic Publishing is proud to showcase the work of these highly talented individuals. VESAGE contains over 116 pages of artwork submitted by VES members in the mediums of photography, illustration, painting and sculpture. A tribute to the great matte painter Albert Whitlock is featured written by Bill Taylor along with thoughts from Dan Curry on VESAGE and a gallery of his personal artwork.

Why focus on the personal work of VES members? The vast majority of VES members are talented artists in their own right. It's the personal art of VES members that VESAGE celebrates. The world is familiar with their outstanding professional work, but their professional work is so often conceived, directed, and tailored to someone else's requirements and is often executed by a whole team of people. VESAGE gives you an insight into the art that members create when they're free to explore their own imaginations.
