ART OF THE DRAGON: The Definitive Collection of Contemporary Dragon Painting

Patrick Wilshire approached me about a year ago in regards to a book he was putting together about dragons. Well, it's finally been released! I've got a few pieces in it as well as fellow artists Jeff Easley, Larry Elmore, Clyde Caldwell, Keith Parkinson, Todd Lockwood, Donato Giancola, John Howe, Bob Eggleton, Don Maitz, Stephen Hickman, Boris Vallejo, Julie Bell, Greg Hildebrandt, Michael Whelan, and many more. It's an honor to have my work included alongside these Titans! The book is called THE ART OF THE DRAGON: THE DEFINITIVE COLLECTION OF CONTEMPORARY DRAGON PAINTING and can be picked up on Amazon for $26. Thanks Pat for thinking to include my work in this book!

Here are a few close up shots of some of the paintings I have included in the book.

Forgotten Realms Cover - Spinner of Lies

Here is a cover I did for Forgotten Realms ebook, Sword of the Gods: Spinner of Lies by BRUCE CORDELL. The book is the sequel to Sword of the Gods: The Abyssal Plague. This was a fun one to work on. The art director gave me lots of freedom. The main parameter was the squarish layout of the image on the cover. I decided to go taller in the final painting for sake of a stronger original painting. Here is a link to the book on the Wizards site. SPINNER OF LIES

The original is 20x16 oil on masonite.
