Hello! I am Miha, a illustrator and digital artist from tiny Slovenia. I've been working on book covers for the better part of my freelancing career. Mostly I've been asked to do illustration work in the Fantasy genre, be it High Fantasy, Urban, Dark Fantasy or anything in between and I absolutely love it and have ever since I first read The Hobbit as a child. Add to that many years of playing RPGs and fantasy games of all types and you can see how my choice of becoming a fantasy artist seems more and more like an inevitable turn of events.

Prior to becoming an artist I studied History and English at the University of Maribor, only to focus on art after my completed MA. Additionally, I am also enthusiastic about various world mythologies, though I've yet to meet a history student that wasn't. That said, I feel this gives me a unique edge in all things fantasy as I can add that extra layer of historical accuracy, or mythological tropes and archetypes to my artworks. I am driven by skill improvement and always strive to hone my ability of transferring concepts, stories and ideas to the digital canvas, paper or any other medium currently at hand. Each project challenges me in different ways and forces me to grow as an artist and I absolutely live for it.

Each cover is a puzzle waiting to be solved and I'd love to help you solve yours. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with me with any questions, ideas or projects you'd like to discuss. I look forward to hearing from you!

Working with Miha has been very pleasant and very easy! Communication was crystal clear and it took little time to settle on the perfect design for my commission!

There were a few delays here and there but those were mainly due to health reasons, and while the process took a while, that was almost entirely because of my requests for alterations, which Miha was entirely willing to facilitate. Everything turned out quite lovely and this will be my first pick next time I want professional cover art.
