This is a Gallery of original paintings I still have. Most were commissioned by UK Publishing Houses as paintings for the covers of paperback novels. The originals were painted with acrylic paint and inks onto CS10 art board.
In recent years, book jacket art appears to have moved more towards photoshop-manipulated stock images, rather than traditional art. There's nothing especially wrong with this, though I personally feel book jackets have somehow lost their warmth and charm.
Owning original book jacket art may well prove to be sound investment for the future. It would seem that a golden age has drawn to a close, especially in the Science Fiction and Fantasy genre. If you are an art collector, I hope there are some paintings here you like.
