Cover Artist: Clint Langley
I bet you’ve already been marveling at the amazing covers of the books that are featured on the blog this month, The Chronicles of King Rolen’s Kin. I know I absolutely adore them. All the covers were made by artist Clint Langley. Not only that, but he also made the covers for Rowena Cory Daniells other series: The Outcast Chronicles. You can see those amazing covers again here:

I thought it would be great to give you guys a glimpse at some of the other work Clint Langley has made so here I have some examples of other covers he made and some work he’s done for Marvel. If you’re just as swept away by his art as I am, be sure to check out his website and his facebook page!
I love the sometimes darker art he produces and also the immense amount of detail. I can keep looking at some of his images and keep on discovering new things. If we look back at the covers of the Chronicles of King Rolen’s Kin: those reflect the wintry landscape perfectly while giving a representation of the characters that pull them into a different light then I’d seen them in the books. It adds to the atmosphere of the books. The covers for The Outcast Chronicles are equally stunning. I love the colours of all three of the covers next to each other. The details are also marvelous here, I could keep looking at them.
Let’s now explore some of his other work:
