My 2010 Published Work

Happy New Year: here's a look back at my 2010 published output. Included are three of the 22(!) interior illustrations published in Michael Moorcock’s ELRIC: SWORDS AND ROSES (Ballantine/Del Rey). As noted by Tor.com and Locus Magazine, the awards nomination season is upon us again (Hugos and otherwise). If you wish to reference this list for future consideration this year, this link will come in handy. Enjoy! :)

Tremendous, tremendous year. Can't wait to pick up Swords & Roses.

Absolutely lovely work, John. Can never overstated enough.

Two questions:
1) Are large prints of your work currently available and/or will you be producing a set of the postcard prints like you had available this past year?

2)Will there be a 'Cover Story II' or a new volume containing your work to present after the publication of your previous book?

Thanks,
ADRIAN

Lou -- Thanks, man. Much appreciated. :)

Adrian -- Some of these will definitely be available as 17 x 22 prints later this year. As far as a new artbook, no plans at this point. COVER STORY came out in '06 and even though it's only been five years, I think if a new book came out today, it would probably have more work than that one did, without duplication. Maybe once I get through the GRRM calendar, I'll put some feelers out and see if any publishers have interest.....thanks for the kind thoughts, man. Very appreciated. Need to slide by Sidebar Nation and catch up on a couple of interview listens. You guys are the best.

Happy New Year,
John

John, I think your illustration for The Waters Rising is some of your best work yet and I wish you all the best in this year's awards nominations.
