Cover Artist for A Memory of Light
Since 1976, Michael Whelan has been one of the world's premier fantasy and science fiction artists, and the first living artist to be inducted into the SF Hall of Fame. He currently devotes most of his time to his gallery paintings, but during his career he has created more than 350 book and album covers for authors and artists like Isaac Asimov, Anne McCaffrey, Sir Arthur C. Clarke, Stephen King, the Jacksons, Sepultura, and MeatLoaf. His clients have included every major U.S. book publisher, in addition to such diverse companies as National Geographic, CBS Records, and The Franklin Mint. Fans, of course, will know him for his stirring artwork for A Memory of Light, the final book of The Wheel of Time, as well as Brandon Sanderson's The Way of Kings.
