Michael Whelan's A Memory of Light cover

Thursday, May 3, 2012

Tor unveiled the cover for the last installment in the Wheel of Time series, A Memory of Light.  Michael Whelan (whose work you have seen on Brandon Sanderson's A Way of Kings) is behind the cover art. The coloring seems to be an homage (maybe not totally voluntary since it's clearly recognizable as a Whelan painting) to Darryl K. Sweet, the artist behind the "infamous" thirtheen previous Wheel of Time covers.  I'm really glad that they chose Whelan and I think he delivered remarkably.  It deserves to stand with all the other covers.

It does have a huge Darrell K. Sweet influence to it. Whelan is a remarkable painter and my favorite of all time.
