Spectrum awards

Tuesday, March 29, 2011

The Spectrum 18 awards winners were announced last week. While not all the winners are directly related to the fantasy novels cover art field, I thought that some names/winners were worth mentioning.

Among them is Kekai Kotaki, one of my favorite artist in the fantasy fields. Recently, his work was observed on the cover of The Unremembered and Sacrifice of the First Sheason by Peter Orullian, Misericorde by Jaida Jones and Danielle Bennett and The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan e-book edition among others. As for the Spectrum Gold award for Concept art, he won with the Riven Earth concept for the Guild of Wars 2 video game.

As for the books themselves, the Silver award went to Dan dos Santos for his work on White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland. His illustrations were seen on the covers of The Fires of Heaven by Robert Jordan e-book edition featuring a beautiful Moraine, Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson and many other fantasy novels. Here's the cover art for White Trash Zombie (I'm not so sure about this one....) :

Kudos to both of them. For the full list of winners head on to Tor.com.
