Cornwell was one of the greatest American painters and it was a thrill to see so many of his paintings on display in the Kelly Collection.

Done for the 2018 Month of Love challenge, “Black”.
This month’s prompts led me down a very dark and very strange alley.
It felt like Destiny and who am I to fight Destiny?
This first only hints at the grand design.
I hope you’ll share the love.
Cover reveal! Here is the cover I did for Seanan McGuire’s Tricks for Free. Book seven in the InCryptid series. It releases March 2018 with DAW.
Megan Lara’s work came to my attention with her amazing posters for the cast of Firefly.
Her work has character (probably because she is herself a character and avid cosplayer), and she loves the forms of many past artists- from Mucha (my favorite, natch) to de Lempicka and the low art of tattoos and t-shirts. I hope that she enjoys creating the nerdy work as much as I love to see it.
I’ve loved Jody Lee’s work since the first covers of hers I saw (probably for Mercedes Lackey).
Her understanding of classic forms, color, and decoration are peerless. She was creating stunning (and instantly identifiable) line designs long before anyone else I knew – and I invariably use her work in courses I teach about the Dos and Don’ts of Branding and Marketing for self-publishers.
She is (along with my friend Paul Komoda) the artist I most want to own a lifelong monograph of.
Thanks to her husband’s superb painting, I’d seen Laurie Lee Brom’s face long before I actually met her. But seeing her paintings was a different thing entirely – luminous oil portraits with a hint (or more than a hint) of the Gothic. Her work is colorful and elemental, and the same sensibility and delight at putting a raccoon into the hoops of a skirt somehow removes the inherently clichéd quality of fairy wings. It’s a fine (and beautifully scrolled) line, but she walks it very well indeed.
