About

 
luisapreissler.jpg

I am a freelance illustrator specializing in fantasy book covers.

After various jobs in the computer games industry I now fully concentrate on my passion of illustrating book covers for clients like Heyne/Random House, Subterranean Press, Future Publishing and various self-publishers. I’m a huge book nerd and I love to get sucked into fantasy worlds, that’s where my main inspiration comes from.

I really like working on book covers for (urban) fantasy novels as well as steampunk, cyberpunk, sci-fi and young adult books. My work is very character focused and is included in the art annual “Spectrum 26 - The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art”. I always strive to convey a strong mood and expression and I also love dramatic lighting.

I give portrait drawing and digital painting workshops at the SAE Institute in Germany, contributed workshops to the ImagineFX magazine and I mentor aspiring artists.

In my free time I love to read urban fantasy books, play video games, enjoy good food with friends and attend dance classes twice a week.
