About Me

My name is Tom. I'm a freelance illustrator and concept artist from the UK.

I founded Tom Edwards Design in early 2015 with the goal of producing top-quality artwork for clients, regardless of the subject or genre. I've had the privilege of working with top sci-fi authors like G.J. Ogden, Scott Bartlett, James Rosone, Ken Lozito, Daniel Arenson, and Craig Martelle. These collaborations have honed my artistic skills and deepened my understanding of the genre, allowing me to create iconic covers that resonate with fans.

I am passionate about helping new authors bring their unique worlds to life. Guiding emerging voices through the creative process and watching their stories take flight is incredibly rewarding. Working directly with authors lets me understand their vision and translate it into captivating covers that resonate with readers. This collaborative process has enriched my creative journey and forged strong, lasting relationships with clients. My blend of artistic skill and genre-specific knowledge has made me a sought-after artist, contributing to many successful book projects.

If you're looking for a book cover artist with a passion for sci-fi and fantasy, let's collaborate to create a captivating cover that will enchant readers and perfectly encapsulate your story.

Initially, I thought of Tom as the SciFi cover guy, but I've had him make fantasy and a YA Urban Fantasy cover now, and they are just as good as his other ones. He is up for any challenge and makes the whole custom cover process simple. I know that having a Tom Edwards cover gives my book a fighting chance out there, and they always grab attention."
