I'm an Award-Winning Illustrator and Book Cover Artist focused on fantasy, horror, dystopian fiction, and historical subjects.
Since 2003 I created well over one thousand illustrations -mainly for book covers- commissioned by major Publishers around the globe for authors such as Anne Rice, Robin Hobb, Joe Abercrombie, Isaac Asimov, Mario Puzo, H.G. Wells, Ursula K. Le Guin, Andrzej Sapkowski, William Gibson, Steven Erikson, Robert Louis Stevenson, and J.G. Ballard, to name just a few.
In recent years I've been working on illustrated books such as the classic gothic novella by Robert Louis Stevenson: "Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde" and several tales by Edgar Allan Poe, Sheridan Le Fanu, and Théophile Gautier. And especially on the illustrated and deluxe edition of A. Sapkowski's "The Witcher".
In 2021 I illustrated a special new edition of Joe Abercrombie's "The Blade Itself".
In 2022 I fully illustrated the classic "The Worm Ouroboros" by E. R. Eddison, a new edition to be published soon.
Also, I worked on a couple of Assassin's Creed book covers.
This year I'm proud to be working on a very special project: Frankenstein. A truly classic of gothic literature, by Mary Shelley. New illustrated edition.
