  1. Just a very quick Thank You! from us at Angry Robot, and particularly from me, the AR art director (btw, I also specced our earlier winner Dead Harvest). It means a lot to us to win. Go Joey HiFi!

    1. Thank you for stopping by! You're doing a fantastic job. I love the Angry Robot book covers and books! I think Angry Robot is going to deserve a special award by the end of the 12 months of competition.

  2. Joey Hi-Fi's work is just amazing (although I always get frantically jealous when he does covers other than mine like this one http://angryrobotbooks.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/KnightsOfBretonCourt-144dpi.jpg or this one http://www2.dailymaverick.co.za/photos/cache/2012-04-23-denooy-diane-23412-feature-618-408.jpg). Neat interview with him over at South Africa's City Press. http://m.news24.com/citypress/Lifestyle/News/Design-hero-Joey-Hi-Fi-20120330
