Cover Artist: Karla Ortiz

After attending FantasyCon last weekend and following the British Fantasy Awards 2015, I thought it might be time to resurrect the ‘Cover Artist’ feature on the blog. In the category ‘Best Artist’, Karla Ortiz won the British Fantasy Award. Curious as I am, I checked out her work immediately. I loved it! I recognised the first image from a cover and I can remember thinking what an amazing cover it was when the book first came out. Enjoy some of her work below!

It goed without saying that all these images are property of Karla Ortiz.
