Here is my latest illustration.

It’s loosely based on Corum’s return to castle Erorn the book “the Knight of the Swords” by Michael Moorcock. The image was purchased by Chris Northern for an upcoming book cover.

As usual the work of Frank Frazetta and Todd Lockwood, as well as Alan Lee, Brian Froud, Rodney Mathews, and Peter A. Jones filled my mind and I hope I channelled it into something that was more me than anything else.

Corsairs of Cthulhu – back cover art

I’ve always fancied creating an image of Cthulhu…

… and so when putting together some pre-made covers I mentioned I’d done something to Ben of New Comet Games. He really liked it and decided to use it for the back cover of this bookCorsairs of Cthulhu” which you can pre order on that page.

Stormy seas are something I’d like to visit again soon. That was a lot of fun.

First Breach

This is the third in a series of covers I was asked to produce for “The Planar Cycle” series by Chamberlain Potts.
An incredible fantasy that gave me lots of amazing imagery to work with. Here I depicted “The Bleeding Elm“. A thirty-foot gnarly leafless tree with an abnormally thick truck. They’re covered in thick thorns and have vines that run along the ground to capture and impale anything that ventures too close onto the trunk. Along with the Cymarion in the foreground. I always do my best to ensure all my customers get the maximum value and impact and I also really enjoy doing this.

First Breach Front Cover

Lots of fun with this one. Dark forests are always a challenge. Once again the inspiration of Frank Frazetta and Todd Lockwood, as well as Alan Lee, Brian Froud, Rodney Mathews, and Peter A. Jones, play a big part, but hopefully I’m mostly channeling me!

Freelance on the Galactic Tunnel Network

Freelance on the Galactic Tunnel Network. A human, and alien Gryphon and a robot play cards. The Gryphon is winning.

E.M. Foner always presents me with a challenge and this time was no different.

He offers an amazing universe filled with human, alien and A.I. interaction in his books and manages to achieve a great balance between the serious and humorous. Working with him on this helped me achieve that same goal.

I’m also finding my inspiration coming from a wide variety of artists. Lately I’ve been looking a lot at the mythical beasts and aliens created by Peter Andrew Jones, Jim Burns, Todd Lockwood and Michael Raymond Whelan (all of whom I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know over the past few years ) and so when serendipity presented me with the opportunity to do something on that theme with these covers I was very happy to get stuck in.

Of course I’m also feeling the influences of Chris Foss, Chris Archilleos, Peter Elson, Roger Dean, Rodney Mathews and even the great Frank Frazetta, but hopefully I ended up with something that is essentially “me”

It’s well worth the read!

New series by Richard Tongue

Richard always presents me with a challenge and this time it’s no different.
3 covers for his new series featuring a ship that is inspired by the NASA warp ship. Of course, he gave me a bit more guidance. I love this stuff I really do. It’s what I dreamt of as a teen, making images that look like this.

Now I will repeat myself because it bears repeating: I do my utmost to infect the viewer with these feelings too just as my favorite artists did to me. People like : (in no particular order )  and I have to thank them: Todd Lockwood, Jim Burns, Chris Foss, Chris Archilleos, Peter Elson, Roger Dean, Rodney Mathews, Frank Frazetta, Peter A Jones and many more, without whom I would be painting landscapes.

A Thaven Chronicle by Travis Pond

Travis and I wanted to create a cover that looked like a book that could come from the Story. And we also created a map which was a lot of fun.

The Loyalty of Water

When Stephani approached me to produce a cover for this book I knew it would be a Challenge.

The Loyalty Of Wate600 px

However, in the end, I feel I produced one of my best covers. The story’s conflicts characters and environments meant I had plenty to work with. The influences of Frank Frazetta and Todd Lockwood, as well as Alan Lee and Peter A. Jones,  are very prevalent in this painting, though I’m always trying to add my own twist.
