• Gate of Ivory

    Gate of Ivory 1998 This picture tries to echo the sliding and juxtaposition of worlds that Robert Holdstock's books carry off so well. The giant head on the left is from the Strasbourg cathedral, the tree growing on it from England, behind that is a ruin from Scotland, the open-mouthed statue with the fire inside is a Scandinavian sculpture, the roots on the far left are from the Gulf...

  • Throal, the Dwarf Kingdom

    Throal, the Dwarf Kingdom Another role-playing game book cover. While the village at the bottom was a bit tedious, the actual entrance to the dwarf kingdom was a good deal more fun. Dwarven statues dwarfing the rest... and yes, those are indeed the Alps. Throal - The Dwarf Kingdom An Earthdawn Sourcebook Fasa Corporation

  • Sketch for "Guards! Guards!"

    Sketch for "Guards! Guards!" Initially done for a Discworld calendar project, until it turned out that 4 of the 12 illustrators involved had chosen the same scene... definitely an editorial error... I did a different picture.

  • The Man Who Lit the Stars

    The Man Who Lit the Stars Cover illustration The background is from a watercolour by Durer, the trees from somewhere damp. As for the man himself, I met him on a bus. No kidding. He was disguised as a student and had left the ladder somewhere, but I immediately saw it was him, left a card, and asked if I could do some portraits. One of the dangers of living in the same town as an...

  • Smaug Destroys Lake Town

    Originally done for the 1988 Tolkien Calendar, I was of course overjoyed and flattered to see it make not only the chosen month, but the cover of the English edition. I remember spending ages trying to get Smaug the way i wanted him, and nothing seemed to work. Finally, I put that little kink in his tail that broke the smooth line of it, and the whole thing fell into place. The Tolkien...

    Smaug Asleep An unsuspecting Smaug - except for a bit of a bad dream about thieves - deep asleep while an invisible Hobbit with a most peculiar and magical Ring helps himself to a golden cup, exactly like the thief who woke the dragon in Beowulf. Meditations on Middle-Earth: New Writing on the Worlds of J. R. R. Tolkien by Orson Scott Card, Ursula K. Le Guin, Raymond E. Feist, Terry...

    Storm Dimensions: 94.2 x 52.0 cm 2001 Cover illustration for A Clash of Kings George R. R. Martin 2005 In my mind ALL coastlines should be like this, with ruins perched on every headland and seamount. The weather would ALWAYS be windy with storms on the horizon and great waves crashing on the rocks. Not that I have anything against bright sun and sandy beaches, mind you...
