Description Edit | History

Michael Whelan (born June 29, 1950 in Culver City, California) is an artist who since 1980 has been one of the world's premiere fantasy and science fiction artists, creating more than 350 book and album covers for authors and musicians like Isaac Asimov, Anne McCaffrey, Arthur C. Clarke, Stephen King, and MeatLoaf. He was also the cover illustrator for Rolemaster Companion IV. He is now devoting all of his time to creating his own visions, turning down all commissioned work since 1996.

Whelan has been successfully treated for Lyme disease and prostate cancer. He has a second-degree black belt in Chinese-Okinawan Kempo.

Whelan grew up in Colorado, New Mexico, and along the California coast. He has been living in Danbury, Connecticut.

  • He is the most honored artist in his field, winning an unprecedented 15 Hugo Awards, 3 World Fantasy Awards, and the SuperHugo as the Best Artist of the last 50 years.
  • In June 2009, he was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame, the first living artist to have been inducted.
