Good stuff! When I saw this http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_WLrDzkr7ilc/SoBMiAqW2GI/AAAAAAAAAfM/pPcG1CQdqlA/s1600-h/KnightMarch.jpg I thought immediately "his is book cover stuff". Your style really hits a nice spot between painterly and graphical at the same time. I like it.

Well, I don't know how it works in the US, but in Germany most often advertising agencies do all the the grunt work for the publishers, which means: they get the script, then layout the whole book and buy the art for the cover.
I usually check the imprint of books when I'm in a booskstore. This way my list grows bigger and bigger with agencies where I can send my portfolio when I'm ready.

I think with your body of work it shouldn't be a problem to get to do more book covers.

bye Sascha

Wow great work Rich. It's nice to see that your work was to be on the front of this book. Great piece as well.

I hope you get in the cover illustration business my friend. You style is really unique :)

Found this by first reading an article on Kotaku about the book, thinking "man, that cover artist has some serious chops" and subsequently having to search for your web page. Very nice work!
