I am very pleased to present to you Chris Mc Grath, the wonderfully talented cover artist behind the huge bestsellers such as: The Dresden Files (Jim Butcher), Sign of the Zodiac Series (Vicki Pettersson), and many more. Science fiction covers generally take a bit longer than the urban fantasy one because there is usually more detail involved. Be true to yourself and your “style” will find you. DFT: Are your originals for sale, owned by you or licensed? I went into college with a clear idea of what I wanted to do and stuck with it. I just keep sketching, watching movies and so on, hoping something will come to me. DFT: Do you feel that a cover should accurately reflect the characters inside the book? DFT: Do you have any current projects that you would like to tell us about?
You can visit Chris around the web here: Website DFT: Are you trained as an artist? I was trained classically at The School of Visual Arts in NYC. DFT: What are some important things to keep in mind when pursuing a career as an Illustrator? I have prints for sale on my site and the few oil paintings I have on there, I may consider selling one day. When I graduated it took a few years for me to get my act together but I was always determined to be a cover artist and just kept dropping off my portfolio until I got a job. Sometimes I get to read the book but pretty often the book company already has some ideas as to what they want on the cover. Sometimes the project itself is different enough that it will work itself out. I really enjoyed doing “Midwinter” and the “Mistborn” series. DFT: Which author would you love to do a book cover for? DFT: Are there any of your covers that you ended up not liking? There are a few I’m looking forward to starting soon.
His life was taken much too soon, and we will miss him every day and throughout this life and into eternity.
