Seven Sorcerers by Charlie-Bowater Seven Sorcerers by Charlie-Bowater
The first of two book covers I painted for Simon & Schuster - Caro King’s Seven Sorcerers and also the sequel Shadow Spell.

I painted these last year and it's nice to finally be able to share them. I see lots of mistakes with this one, but I'm mostly happy.

:)

I was looking for this cover on amazon--wanted to submit it to a forum where they are asking for best covers of the year. I see that some other cover is on the book. Too bad. This cover TOTALLY rocks. I love it!!!

I was at the bookstore the other day, saw this book, and remembered who did the cover! (I was going to buy the two books, but they were big and I was getting on a plane, so I couldn't). It's really nice!

Oh man, I got sooooooo excited when I saw that you posted 2 new pictures. I made a ridiculously... girlish noise. I look up to you so much, and you're a big part of why I broke away from a more cartoony style into realism. It's amazing to see your work.
