About Me

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

 I studied graphic design at college, and then game art and design at De Montfort University. After my studies, I was hired as a concept artist at Codemasters, a UK based games company. I worked on marketing artwork and concept art for racing and mobile games. My real passion is sci-fi and fantasy art.

 I formed Tom Edwards Design in early 2015 after leaving Codemasters. My aim is to produce the highest quality artwork for clients, whatever the subject or genre. Most of my work to date has been for science fiction and fantasy book covers, and I’ve also worked on mobile games, board games, and RPGs. Please take a look through my work galleries, and if you’re looking for a professional approach and a final product worthy of your project, please don’t hesitate to contact me.​

Author Testimonials

Hundreds of authors have trusted me with their vision, here are a few...

KT Belt

"Working with Mr. Edwards was as easy and straightforward as tying shoelaces. His ability to craft an image based upon the short descriptions I gave him bordered on the near telepathic. Quick to respond, always on time (if not early), the entire process from beginning to end was a pleasure. Not much else can be asked of such an amazing talent, which is why I plan to use him for future works. Can't recommend him highly enough."

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 the final artwork ahead of schedule. If you need cover art, you need Tom Edwards."

C.C. Ekeke

"I've used Tom Edwards for nine covers (and counting). Each time he translates my written project overviews into pieces of beautiful, high-quality artwork. Whenever I send a new project summary, the end results always surpass expectations. I've never had a cover artist visually articulately scenes from my books as expertly as Tom. He is extremely professional in how he collaborates with an author's vision, communicates fantastically if any aspect of the project overview isn't clear, and never fails to meets any deadlines. These are just a few of the reasons why Tom Edwards is the top sci-fi cover artist in the indie publishing business. I cannot recommend him highly enough."

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."

Matthew Helling, author of “Blood of The Ancient Saints

"It has been a pleasure to work with the artist, Tom Edwards. He will listen to you and, from your concept/photos/sketches, will develop a powerful image for the cover of your book. His graphic skills are elite, and he offers different versions with each step in the process in order to create the book jacket that you want. I am very pleased with the cover art that Tom Edwards did for me, and would highly recommend him for your next novel."

Si Clarke

"When I was working on my latest novel, I knew stock art wasn’t going to cut it. Weirdly, there just weren’t any stock photos of day-glow pink spaceships shaped like teapots. Who could have predicted? I set out to find an artist, researching science fiction art. And then I researched some more. The same name kept popping up. Tom Edwards. I messaged him – and I’m so glad I did. I mean, have you seen the glorious, ridiculous, completely unique cover image he created for The Left Hand of Dog? I’m a very happy customer. And just like Arnie says, I’ll be back"
