Jeff Brown – Designer

Sci-fi and Fantasy illustrated covers. 800+ covers, clients include Harper Collins, Scholastic, Bloomsbury.


I love crafting awe-inspiring, innovative, and marketable artwork, primarily in science fiction and fantasy genres. As a professional illustrator and designer with 6 years of experience, I have created 800+ book covers, working with renowned publishers and bestselling authors. I use digital painting, matte painting, 3D modeling, photo-manipulation, and graphic design to create unique, eye-catching book covers.

My clients include publishers such as Harper Collins, Scholastic, and Bloomsbury.

Innovative + Marketable + Beautiful. While some covers can focus too much on one of these, I work to keep all 3 as strong goals for each of my covers. I ensure that the cover stands out, appeals to the target audience, and is visually stunning.

My process includes video calls or Reedsy messages for in-depth discussions, brainstorming, and feedback. The initial Zoom call (while not obligatory) is helpful for me to thoroughly understand your book and work with you to discover the best possible concept for your cover. I sketch out a rough draft while screen sharing right on the call with you.

I offer a satisfaction guarantee – if you're not happy with the cover, you don't pay. My rates are higher than most, but I provide flexible payment plans if requested and maintain the same rates for a series.

Pricing options:

$1600 - eBook only
$1800 - eBook + Print: Wraparound illustration for spine and back cover (JPG & PDF)
$2000 - Full Package: Custom illustrated & designed eBook cover, wraparound illustration, extra print PDF for hardcover, wide illustration, banner image, 3D book mockups, multiple PDF print files, artwork file, audiobook cover, and PSD file.

Feel free to reach out with questions or simply for any industry advice. I'm here to help with no pressure to accept my offer! I look forward to hearing from you!

So grateful I chose to work with Jeff! I'm incredibly picky when it comes to art and he somehow made me the perfect cover. Not certain how he did it when I didn't even have an idea for the darn thing lol but he excelled and it is a relief to have a cover I'm proud of.

I am very pleased with the job Jeff did for me. My book cover is just as I envisioned. Would I work with Jeff again? Oh, hell yes. Next book? Thank you so much, Jeff. In relation to Reedsy, let's discuss their platform. Reedsy possesses an impressive product, and based on my observations, they employ highly skilled individuals. However, there is an issue in the procedural aspect of communicat...
