Legendary Illustrator Darrell K Sweet 1934-2011 RIP
With great sadness it is reported that Darrell K. Sweet passed away this morning. Since the mid 1970s, Darrell’s illustrations defined many of fantasy’s most beloved series—including Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time—among literally thousands of genre book covers. An avid history buff, Darrell also spent much of his time painting frontiersmen and the American West. His paintings evoked the classic storytelling narration of the Golden Age illustrators. A Sweet cover promised an adventure to be had.
His son stated, “He lived his life as an artist — seeing the beauty that surrounds.”
