Michael Whelan is a legend in the field of illustration, the only living artist inducted in the SF Hall of Fame.
Earlier this year, his cover for A MEMORY OF LIGHT by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list, and he just completed another blockbuster in Sanderson’s WORDS OF RADIANCE.
At the same time, Whelan has taken on covers for small press titles like Robert McCammon’s I TRAVEL BY NIGHT (Subterranean Press) and Todd McCaffrey’s DRAGONWRITER (Smart Pop Books). Most peculiar among these assignments just might be the Mutant Hunter series by Stephen R. Cox.
I recently had the opportunity to speak with Whelan about the project. Head to IO9 for the full interview, or follow the link to the original post on my Kinja blog.
