Hello and welcome to Tom Edwards Design. This is the home of the professional artwork of Tom Edwards, a freelance book cover artist, illustrator and concept artist from the UK.

- Currently accepting work for 2017


Here are some testimonials from a few of my clients.

Nick Webb"Who's the best SFF cover artist working today? Tom Edwards, hands down. At any given time you'll see his art all over the bestsellers list, and for good reason: his art is stunning, eye-catching, and beautiful. After I've put hundreds of hours into writing a book I want only the most jaw-dropping art for my cover, and inevitably, it's Tom I turn to."

Jasper T. Scott "Tom Edwards is a masterful artist. The covers he makes actually inspire you to write a better book just so that the writing can live up to the artwork. And on the business side of things, he's just as good: fast, reliable, takes direction, and sticks to a budget. Working with him is an experience I'll happily repeat for many years to come."

Ralph Kern  - "Tom is simply the best cover artist working in the business today. He has gained a reputation, and a following, for creating the most beautiful and eye-catching covers - Just what authors want, and what readers seek. Not only is his end-product excellent, but he is a pleasure to work with. He shows an amazing ability to not only translate briefs into exactly what is envisaged but also gives a cover designer mindset, to ensure it looks great on both screen and print."

Geoff North  - "Tom Edwards is an absolute joy to work with! I told him what I wanted, and he quickly delivered a breathtaking preliminary that barely required any second touch-ups. I am so proud to have his work representing mine, and will not hesitate to seek him out again for future covers."

Colin W Coyle, Parvus Press - "Tom Edwards is a stunning talent and an absolute joy to work with. He has a singular talent for translating our scene descriptions and story notes into a brilliant design that captures precisely the mood and messaging we want from cover art. For the cover art for Vick's Vultures, we ended up taking his first draft as final with only the slightest modifications. Best of all; he was in constant communication with us throughout the process and delivered final artwork ahead of schedule. If you need cover art, you need Tom Edwards."

Stephen Renneberg -"The single most important piece of advertising an author can have is a great book cover. For this reason, it’s worth going to the best in the business, which is Tom Edwards. He has an amazing talent for creating beautiful, evocative SFF art coupled with a highly professional, completely reliable approach, which makes it a pleasure to work with him. I highly recommend Tom to any SFF author looking for dazzling artwork that will capture any reader’s attention."

Craig Martelle -"Tom has done six covers of six in my bestselling Free Trader series. I couldn't be happier with the perfect alignment between the covers and the story arc. It starts with a simple paragraph describing the scene, then Tom does the rest. I've had to make no changes to what Tom has created in his mind and put on paper. Tom delivers a quality product, on time, in all the formats I asked for. Tom makes it easy, giving me eye-popping art that draws readers to my books." 

M. Terry Green -"Superb artistry plus professionalism equals a great book cover. I can’t recommend Tom Edwards highly enough. My readers have been positively thrilled with Tom’s artwork. That, to me, is the ultimate measure of a cover’s success."
