AFR Top List - Best Fantasy cover artists

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

It's list time everybody!!!

You know that I love to talk about book covers and I wanted to share with you my favorite artists behind the gorgeous illustrations that stand proud on the covers of our Fantasy novels filling our shelves.  The list is in no particular order by I admit that on the wall in front of me, there's a signed print of Michael Komarck's Anomander Rake from the cover of Gardens of the Moon. I hope that Kekai Kotaki will soon open up his online store as well..

I chose to present some works from my top 4 and mention some other great illustrators!

Dan Dos Santos. Amazing work. He did the cover for Brandon Sanderson's "Warbreaker", and the ebook cover for Robert Jordan's "The Fires of Heaven". Plus he did a pretty sweet Capt. Malcom Reynolds for a "Firefly" graphic novel.
