When I searched for a cover illustrator for Anthem's Fall, I stumbled upon a ton of super talented artists. In particular I was floored by the work of Marko Manev. He does a lot of minimalist interpretations of pop culture icons, and in that field I think he's in a league of his own. I still often find myself going back to his website and flipping through his portfolio. I never get tired of his work.
I'll admit I still have my fingers crossed that one day our paths will align and he can bring to life a character from Anthem's Fall. Oh man what I would give to see his take on certain scenes! Here are some of my favorite pictures from his portfolio. I have a print of one of these framed above my desk. Can you guess which?
His website is http://markomanev.com/ if you want to see more of his epic work. Lots of other cool works.
