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.

    He is an up and comer in covers, isn’t he? Great stuff. Coincidentally,an ARC of Mark Lawrence’s debut arrived from Penguin/Ace today and the cover is by none other than Mr. Chan

    I’m a fan :) Got a certain Chan picture up on my wall…

    So Aidan loves Chan and hates the hooded man (or so I gather from Sam Syke’s post) … the Prince of Thorns cover must leave him very conflicted! Perhaps we can both agree that there aren’t many better hooded men out there…
