I thought I would stop by this page just to see other Culture inspired art and saw I had been made an admin (I remember being asked about this a while ago and said yes but I have been so busy I have forgotten about it).
I thought I would send out this blog entry as an introduction, I am a huge Iain M. Banks fan, and Consider Phlebas is my favourite story, although I love Excession too.

I am VERY unfamiliar with being an admin of a Deviantart page but I will do my best to pick up bits here and there to help generate some nice content for fans of Banks's work to look at.

I saw someone say this page is very quiet, hopefully it won't be for long and fans of The Culture can get to look at images created by the minds that were inspired by Iain M. Banks.
Thought I'd let everyone know that I've located some IMB Culture fan-fiction hosted on
So check it out. There are currently 13 related stories on there. Here's the link:

Group Info

How to join/contribute:
This is an open group. Elevation to contributor is by vote or admin approval.

I.M.B's Culture - elsewhere on the web:

This group indexes art and fanfiction derived from Iain M Banks astounding Culture novels. Hopefully a repository for culture-based work will inspire more artists and writers to produce images and words around...

Massive GSV's, small(ish) ROU's, the blinding annihilation of gridfire, slowly turning orbitals, snarky drones, shape-shifting Idiran spies, alluring Special Circumstances agents, mysterious Excessions, pulsing Effectors, nebulous Avatars, and whatever else your... Minds... can come up with.

Hi - I thought I'd join this group to contribute culture paintings - I submitted one, but nothing's happened - maybe I misunderstood how this works? Let me know - Cheers!

Sorry that no-one has gotten back to you sooner.
On your page you can select 'add to group' and you can type our groups name and that will submit it for review for inclusion to the page.

I hope this helps :)

Hi - No problem!
I used to participate in the art community at Renderosity, but this seems unfathomably complex in comparison! :)

...seems to work now.  It's quiet here...

So, for those who read and enjoy bank's books, I was going to write something about finishing The Hydrogen Sonata, but I think I should just (respectfully) post this link:
This really sucks in so many ways.

Ehrm, just noticed that there is no longer any 'contribute art' facility in the group - so how do we add new work? :confused:

btw I've added a "favs/featured" tab to the group homepage; It will display the pieces that I feel really stand out from the rest. If any of you have seen any good culture artwork online or in person, send me a lik/info and I would love to get it included/linked on/from this page
