It’s my pleasure to announce that Michael Whelan will be creating the ebook cover art for A Memory of Light, the final volume of The Wheel of Time.
It has been a privilege to work on our WoT ebook project this past year and a half—although deciding which artists to include is as much a heartbreak as it is exciting. There are so many wonderful and talented artists I would love to work with.
With such a powerhouse roster to begin with, the pressure is on to end with a bang. Few can argue that Whelan is just the guy to pull it off. His resume is impressive—multiple Hugo, Spectrum, Society of Illustrators, and Chesley awards, to name just a few—but it’s the admiration he has garnered among fans, artists, and authors (not to mention WoT co-writer, Brandon Sanderson himself) that makes Michael the obvious choice.
