Science Fiction & Fantasy Author and Illustrator
My artwork has appeared on the covers of books, ebooks, and magazines. I've also drawn and/or painted illustrations that have appeared in various publications, online, on tee shirts, or in advertisements.
My recently published illustrations and those due to be published shortly are shown below. I'm hoping some folks might consider nominating, then voting for me for Best Fan Artist for the Hugo Awards one of these years. Years the art was published are listed at the front of each comment.

I've placed a scan of my painting before the magazine/book cover which used the artwork. When a painting was used for more than one cover, I've placed both cover images after the original painting. I hope you enjoy this look at cover art and its origins.
