JC Pouzols

JC Pouzols – Designer

A fantasy/sci-fi nerd at heart, I have been working on book covers, interior art, and game concept art for over 10 years.

Overview

Inspired by the Golden Age of illustration, I paint classically with oil paint on canvas or paper. I started out in the role-playing game industry doing interior illustrations, and later started working on book covers.


As an illustrator, my job is to capture the author's vision and translate it into a visual language that can grab people's attention in a bookstore, be it brick-and-mortar or online.


I love the back and forth with the author to find what they want to communicate: from preliminary sketches exploring the possibilities to refined sketches and the final drawing, and then the finished illustration.

Communication with the creator at every step of the process is key, so that together we can find that particular moment that best captures the spirit of the work, and make it resonate with the audience.


Ultimately, my goal is to help you show your vision in the best possible way.

I loved working with Jon. He’s an incredible artist, and his style of work is unique in a way that it stands out beautifully against others. He was very reasonable with his pricing, and he communicated what he was thinking very clearly. I’m thankful that I found Jon to work with, and I hope to collaborate with him more in future projects.
