I'm really happy to show you my first cover art for Terry Pratchett "discworld" novel: "Mort".

This will be the next French cover art for this amazing book.

I hope you'll like it!

Hey, I just bought this one, will probably read it after "Unseen Academics" (I know it's not the order in which they were written, but I think that's not critical... the first one I read was "The 5th Elephant" and that made me love his work, had I read "The colour of Magic" first it would have probably taken me longer to continue reading his books).  I like how the image seems "shot" with a fisheye lens :)

Quand la mort est en vacances tout déraille. J'avais beaucoup aimé ce livre et l'illustration présente rend bien la loufoquerie de ce dernier.

Hi ! Is it possible to find posters of your Discworld illustrations (via the editor, maybe ?) ?

Some posters will be available soon on the Discworld emporium website...

Colors here are the first thing that strike me. The composition with the blade is exceptional. This face is extremely convincing.

Quirky, but full of bright colours and great characters... and a load of symbolism and pro artwork there. I love it.

Man... I'm... I dunno!
Really, to walk the shoes of the mythical Josh Kirby's covers for the Discworld collection must be some hell of a job and an absolute thrill!
But still you art work is amazing and totally to part with the originals!

Great pic for a great book, although I think Mort's limbs could use a bit more knees. :D

I love it! Especially the skulls that are slipped in everywhere! The fly that Death is using looks just as awful as I thought, and the kitten in Mort's pocket is sweet. I have to say my favorite bit is Death in his touristy outfit. This is awesome.
