Many people have asked me about the cover artist for The Outsmarting of Criminals. His name is J. E. Larson and his beautiful drawings are now gracing a new book called Hades Speaks! by Vicky Alvear Shecter.
As you might guess from the cover, the drawings in the book are a bit more underworld than the more light-hearted cover of Outsmarting. I hunted all over the Net to try to find a few more images from the book, but I couldn’t find any (beyond the cover) and I don’t want to infringe any copyrights. But you can find more samples of Mr. Larson’s work by clicking here. Isn’t the detail magnificent? One of my great frustrations in life is that I have zero (and I do mean ZERO) artistic talent. But I think even the most talented artists might despair when looking at these images, knowing that they could not come up with something so … perfect.
