About the Cover Artist:
Born in Mexico City, cover artist Raúl Cruz first put colors to paper at a young age when television and films inspired him to create his first fantasy illustrations. At the age of twenty, Raúl began a successful and prosperous freelance career, creating science fiction and commercial artwork for books, magazines, CD booklets, posters, ads, set designs, booth designs, television concepts, and more.
Raúl uses a combination of digital and traditional techniques (particularly watercolor, acrylic, ink and airbrush) to create a signature look that defines his style. His art has been exhibited in New York City’s Stehendall Gallery, in the Mexican Chamber of Plasticity, in numerous cultural spaces and events, and in different universities. Many of his pieces have also appeared in publications like Illustrators 39, Spectrum, Heavy Metal Magazine, Fantasy +3, and Erotic Fantasy Art.
