After a month of correspondence, I’ve decided not to use Trevor Smith as my cover artist for SCVK.
However, he was professional and prompt about his communication, and he deserves more clients. Posted above are some of his pieces you in case you’re looking for a science fiction book cover. (The last one won him the Grand Prize in L. Ron Hubbard’s Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contest!) I just love his little pops of color!
His covers start at $600, unless you have a concept he’s really into and are willing to hand over a lot of control to him, then the price starts at $300. He understands that book covers are billboards and wants to do a good job selling your book.
I found him through the KBoards Yellow Pages forum and am glad to have another great artist to follow!
He’s also on DeviantArt. Consider commissioning him today!
