Blog spotlight - Marc Simonetti's

Marc Simonetti is one the best fantasy artists, one that continues to impress with high standard works. Marc Simonetti also gave life to many amazing covers with his artwork, books that are complemented by his works. It is true that mainly the French editions benefit from Marc’s work, but I hope that someday the other editions will have the same benefit too. We have seen in the past Marc Simonetti’s works on the covers of the French editions of George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” series, Patrick Rothfuss’ “The Name of the Wind” or Ken Scholes’ “Lamentation” as a few examples, but also new ones such those above for Jack Vance’s “Dying Earth” books, J.V. Jones’ “A Sword from Red Ice” or Michael A. Stackpole’s “Fortress Draconis”. After having the pleasure to interview Marc Simonetti here on my blog, now I am happy to spotlight his newly created blog. I am happy to see Marc’s blog because it is great to be updated with his works, especially since Marc posts about his latest cover artworks, for Terry Pratchett’s “Discworld” series of novels for example, videos showing us an insight in the process of creation and an update of his other works. It is an excellent place to visit and enjoy.

Those are some great covers. I loved the GRRM one linked. Cover art just doesn't get the recognition it deserves.
