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.​

"Tom Edwards prepared me a brilliant cover for the first book in my new series, and I'm planning to use him for my next book. He is a cover designer who can capture the feel of a book through his artistry while at the same time providing all the graphic elements that make a cover commercially pop. Just to top it off, he's a true professional, and a pleasure to work with--efficient and patient, both. I love his work and enjoy working with him."

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."

Nathan Hystad - Owner, Woodbridge Press

"I've used Tom Edwards for five covers so far (more scheduled), and he has been nothing but professional, efficient, and just overall awesome. 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."

Philip C. Quaintrell

"What a fantastic experience! Tom listened to my brief, offered me multiple sketches, created a set of brilliant covers and they were all delivered on time with easy communication throughout. That might sound simple but that kind of service isn't always easy to find with Tom's caliber of illustration. I will definitely be coming back for more!"

Mike Dukk

"Working with Tom has been a fantastic journey. His work ethic is impeccable, and his ability to envision the images he creates is amazing. When I approached Tom about designing the cover for my novel “The Legend of Steel-Maker,” Tom capably addressed my vision and surpassed my expectations. I am one-thousand percent satisfied with the book cover."

Michael Kane

"Tom was a pleasure to work with. A professional that takes his job seriously, he makes some seriously good covers! He was always prompt in drafts and iteration and easy to work with as we ironed out the details. If you’re looking for a sci-fi cover artist, Tom’s got the imagination and talent to make it happen"
