So I was just wandering around on the Internet, when I stumbled upon a link to an artist’s gallery. I clicked and I instantly recognized some of his work. So I looked up his name, and I found an interview over at A Dribble of Ink, a blog run by Aidan Moher.
The artist’s name is Kekai Kotaki. He was born on Hawaii, and moved to Seattle to go to college. He worked at ArenaNet, then left and started doing freelance work.
His work is beautiful. He worked a lot on the Guild War franchise, but he’s done quite a few fantasy book covers. Here’s a few you might recognize:
He’s also done the covers for Hannu Rajaniemi’s Jean le Flambeur trilogy (starting with The Quantum Thief) and a few covers for Alexey Pehov’s books (such as Shadow Prowler and Shadow Blizzard).
I just thought his work was amazing, and I wanted to show you all. Which one is your favorite?
