Cover artist: Walter Velez
Long known for his cover art for such popular series as Thieves World, the
“Myth” series for Robert Asprin and for Craig Shaw Gardner Velez has recently
turned his multi-faceted talents to Goosebumps and Dune collectible trading
cards, and TSR games and bookcovers Velez consistently turns out colorful, well-composed
and wonderfully lighthearted interpretations of the books he’s been commissioned
His ‘visual signature’ is almost always instantaneously identifiable; while
the characters are broadly and often wittily interpreted, his style of expression
is anything but casual. Often painting on canvas, Velez’s paintings always seem
well thought out, and rendered with a sure hand. It’s only recently that he
has consented to selling some of his original art, which is why we’ re so delighted
to now be able to offer a sampling of his works in our catalogs.
