The Art of Frédéric Chabot


I discovered Frédéric Chabot's work when we were looking for cover artists for Best American Fantasy 2008. We looked at art from a bunch of different people, but I kept coming back to Frédéric's images. For a while, in fact, he was going to be our artist. Alas, the publishing world is mercurial, and in the end some marketing forces pushed us in other directions. It happens all the time, and I certainly understand. But this is such marvelous art, I couldn't help but share my enthusiasm with the world...


More of Frédéric's images are available here and here.

  1. Love #2. Kind of like Keith Haring meets Heironymous Bosch (or Pablo Picasso maybe).
