If you were to ask me to name my favourite Fantasy artist, I’d probably hum over Raymond Swanland, haw over Michael Whelan, scratch my head about Dave McKean and have Todd Lockwood on the tip of my tongue… but the artist I’d eventually come out with would be Kekai Kotaki. I’ll let the art itself explain.
Kotaki is one of those involved in the Guild Wars franchise, a series a videogames that constantly blows me away with its concept art. I am overjoyed to see Kotaki gaining a wider and wider profile in the book market with every year.
What’s your favourite piece of Kotaki artwork?
