Yesterday I featured the cover for Ari Marmell’s Thief’s Covenant. I liked it so much that I felt it was about time I featured some of artist Jason Chan’s work here on A Dribble of Ink. Beyond his bold use of colour, what I love most about Chan’s art is his ability to straddle the line between being fantastical and realistic, youthful and adult. His artwork is definably illustrated, but never falls into the realm of looking comical or immature, even when he’s working on art for Young Adult book covers. Such versatility is hard to come by.
Compare his artwork for Dead Space:
or Dragon Age: Origins:
to his artwork for Among the Ghosts by Amber Benson:
Good stuff, yeah? More of Chan’s art can be found on his official blog.
