Today’s post is all about pretty pictures. Actually, make that amazing pictures in the form of cover art.
We all have a favorite cover artist. The one we’ve dreamed of having design our own cover. For me, it’s Michael Whelan. His work is breathtakingly gorgeous and brilliant, and I think I might give a non-essential organ for him to do my cover.
Just for fun, here’s the link to his gallery.
I also really love the work of Christian McGrath. I first saw his stuff on Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn series, and recognized his hand on The Song of Scarabaeus by Sara Creasy several months later. I’d love this vibe for a steampunk I’m working on. (Edit: I just now realized he’s done all the Dresden covers too!)
Link to your favorites in the comments trail and I’ll add ‘em here!
Steampunk Costume Bonus!
Also, this really doesn't belong in the same category as the beautiful pics above, but this was my fantabulous steampunk costume for Halloween. Gotta love Goodwill - I made the whole thing for under $30.
