Fantasy & Sci-Fi Artworks by Michael Whelan

Published Nov 11, 2022

Connecticut-based illustrator Michael Whelan is one of the world’s most renowned fantasy artists. His pieces can be seen in hundreds of books and album covers, as well as in galleries and private collections around the world.

In 2009, he was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame in Seattle, the first living artist to be named to the distinguished list that features such luminaries as H.G. Wells, Steven Spielberg, Rod Serling, and Ursula K. Le Guin.

Whelan’s paintings are rich in symbolism and offer many layers of meaning to be explored, but his lifelong passion has been to live up to his favorite quote from G.K Chesterton: “The dignity of the artist lies in his duty of keeping awake the sense of wonder in the world.”
