A to Z Challenge: Todd Lockwood

The A to Z Challenge is a meme posting every day (except Sundays) in April. Check out the list of 2000+ participants and follow along for 26 days (and 26 letters) of fun. The 2-letter code after each blog name may help narrow your choices - (BO) is Books, (WR) is Writing, (PH) is Photography . . . and, if you're concerned about those NSFW pages, (AC) is Adult Content.

For my theme, I thought I'd do something I generally try very hard not to do, and that is judge a book by its cover. Yes, this year my A to Z Challenge is all about the cover artists who give the books we know and love so much damn shelf appeal.

Continuing through the alphabet, we have Todd Lockwood, the man behind the amazing covers below:



 



Although there is some science fiction in the mix, it's the very classic, traditional fantasy covers that really catch the eye. Having worked with everybody from Mercedes Lackey and R.A. Salvatore to S.L. Farrell and Steven Erikson, Todd is clearly an artist in high demand.

  1. The one for Salvatore is nice. He does a good job with figures.
