James Gurney

James Gurney has been selected among a prestigious group of only 35 illustrators to represent his generation in The Illustrator in America, 1860-2000, by historian Walt Reed, the definitive history of American illustration. He has won three Hugo awards, The World Fantasy Award, together with many gold and silver medals from the Society of Illustrators and Spectrum.

He is best known for carefully researched and imaginative paintings of dinosaurs, ancient cities, science fiction futures, and fantastic creatures. His illustration work has appeared primarily on paperback covers and in the pages of National Geographic.

A selection of these works appears in the gallery selections of Fantasy Illustration and Magazine Illustration.
