2010 proving a busy year for artist Duncan Long

SciFi Art Now artist Duncan Long reports that, despite the economic downturn he’s been keeping busy, with many self-publishing authors and small presses realizing that in order to compete with big presses, a quality cover illustration is key. Something other artists in the book will, I’m sure, would like to impress on their contacts!

On the “established press” side of things, Duncan is currently finishing up a collection of illustrations for a graphic novel, Werewolves of New Idria, written by John Chadwell, from Moonstone Books.
