Keith Thompson Rocks!

In my last post, I just finished a review of Scott Westerfield’s Leviathan. A great book. What I did not mention was the artwork. I love to see small bits of artwork within a novel. I know that when reading the Harry Potter series, the beginning chapter artwork was a wonderful way to help me visualize the characters and the environment.

And the artwork in Leviathan is fantastic! Just take a look at the sample from his site at the top of this post! While not an image used in Leviathan, this will give you some idea of his flavor. Reading through Scalzi’s and Westerfield’s Big Idea post, I saw the link to the artist responsible: Keith Thompson. I would recommend that any aspiring artist take a look through his gallery. Very original, very vivid and detailed. And if you happen to be a game designer or author looking for an artist for your next game or novel, then give him a call. You can’t go wrong…
