May I congratulate you on the fantastic Fantasy Art Essentials special issue, which is possibly my favourite publication, and I speak for a number of my colleagues too! Since buying it though, I’ve scanned the magazine to find out the artist of the cover image (a female warrior in gold, with an axe, leaning on a tree). Please could you let me know their name? David Ellis, via email Claire replies We’re very glad you and your colleagues are enjoying Fantasy Art Essentials, David. The cover in question was co-created by Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell.
