Rodney Matthews (1945 - )

Born in England, Matthews is known as an illustrator of album covers, as well as for science fiction and fantasy book. You can learn more about him at his website and at Wikipedia.

Rodney Matthews did all of the covers for the late 1970s Universal/Star paperback editions. Those are shown here with full cover art and the original painting. He also did paintings to be used for three other covers which apparently did not get published: Warlock of the Witch World, Sorceress of the Witch World, and Year of the Unicorn. I’m including the original paintings here in spite of the fact that they were never used.
