Acrylic on Illustration Board - 24" x 16"
SWORDS AND ICE MAGIC
This cover was for the sixth book in a series by Fritz Leiber featuring the beloved characters Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser. The author had been writing about their adventures for almost 40 years and each book in the series was an anthology of stories that had been published in other books and magazines. Rather than trying to illustrate a scene from one particular story, Michael decided that the best approach for the cover was to do portraits of the heroes.
