Having recently published an increasingly popular visionary novel about, among other things, the Bird Tribes (with a nod to the wonderful spiritual writer Ken Carey), I thought it might be fun to follow up this recent post featuring some of my paintings with a new one showcasing … birds (and related beings).
“Sol Luckman’s strikingly inspired art shines proudly on the covers of all three of my books published by Inner Traditions (SHAMANIC TRANSFORMATIONS, THE GIFT OF SHAMANISM, SHAMANIC HEALING). His evocative images, bright unapologetic colors and natural flowing forms complement my writings beautifully and open readers to the primeval mystery of the ageless shamanism.”—Izthak Beery, Publisher, Shamanportal.org

👉 👉 👉 Also, more news will be forthcoming very soon on my new self-illustrated book, MUSINGS FROM A SMALL ISLAND, which I’m super excited about. So if you want to stay in the loop, be sure to subscribe to my Substack!

Sol Luckman is a pioneering ink and acrylic painter whose work has been featured on mainstream book covers, the fast-paced trading game BAZAAR, and at least one tattoo on a female leg last sighted in Australia. Sol is also an acclaimed author of fiction, nonfiction, and humor.
Sol’s visionary novel SNOOZE: A STORY OF AWAKENING, the coming-of-age tale of one extraordinary boy’s awakening to the world-changing reality of his dreams, won the 2015 National Indie Excellence Award for New Age Fiction.
Written with young adult and young-at-heart readers in mind, SNOOZE further proved its literary merit by being selected as a 2016 Readers’ Favorite International Book Award Finalist in the Young Adult-Coming of Age category and receiving an Honorable Mention in the 2014 Beach Book Festival Prize competition in the General Fiction category.
Building on this deep dive into lucid dreaming, parallel universes and Hindu mysticism, Sol’s new novel, CALI THE DESTROYER—a page-turner of a sci-fi tale set in an Orwellian future seeded in the dystopian present that radically rewrites Gnosticism as well as the origins of the earth and humanity—was selected as Winner of the 2022 NYC Big Book Award and 2022 National Indie Excellence Award for Visionary Fiction, Silver Medalist for Visionary Fiction in the 2022 Readers’ Favorite International Book Award Contest, Finalist in both the New Age and Visionary Fiction categories of the 2021 International Book Awards, and Distinguished Favorite for Audio Fiction in the 2022 NYC Big Book Awards.
Sol’s popular book of humor and satire, THE ANGEL’S DICTIONARY: A SPIRITED GLOSSARY FOR THE LITTLE DEVIL IN YOU, received the 2017 National Indie Excellence Award for Humor and was selected as a Finalist in the Humor category of both the 2018 International Book Awards and the 2018 Best Book Awards.
