Artist Spotlight: Frenone

Edited to mention Frenone’s correct nationality. She is Dutch, not American.

While traveling through Twitter, I see many pictures. Most merit a simple reply or retweet, but the picture above really caught my eye the way it looked hand-drawn and painted, like something the artists of old would do. I clicked on to the artist’s profile and found that it was done by Frenone (Twitter, personal site), an artist from the Netherlands.

Frenone’s art has a beautiful, almost classical-looking aesthetic, which extends to her chibi drawings as well. I could easily see such art on the covers of books; these pictures are no slapdash job. Due to how professional her art looks, a Twitterer asked her if she planned to work for Blizzard; Frenone answered that she preferred to be freelance. Valuing one’s independence — not a bad sentiment to have. Support her on Patreon if you can.

Below the fold are my personal favorites from her portfolio.

    Thank you for this. I’ll contact her for my “Tales of the Once and Future King” anthology/novel. I need a cover artist for it, and as much as I love Cat Leonard, our unofficial-official artist at Superversive Press (and I mean that sincerely, one of her illustrations is literally framed and hanging on my wall, she’s fantastic), I don’t really think her style is a great fit for the sort of story I’m trying to tell.

    We’ll see what she says. Thanks again
