From the new Tor Books edition of Michael Moorcock’s The Sword of the Dawn:

I’d not been aware of Vance Kovacs, the artist, before this, but he’s certainly on my radar now. Looking at his web portfolio, I’m absolutely blown away.

Seriously. As an art junkie, I feel ashamed not to have heard of Kovacs before. Can anyone point out any covers he’s done besides the Elric re-issues?

    Oh wow. I’d like to see a large image of that last one, in particular. Would be great for a background (or even as a print on the wall).

    The cover art for Frank Beddor’s The Looking Glass Wars series was by Vance Kovacs

    He was also the primary artist behind a lot of Bioware video games, like Icewind Dale 2.
