ART | A Most Amazing Clockwork Woman by Ian Daniels

This absolutely staggeringly gorgeous piece from Dr. Bob Curran's Man-Made Monsters is by Ian Daniels. I made an immediate connection to Ekaterina Sedia's The Alchemy of Stone, which if you're read the star character Mattie will immediately come to mind. Ian Daniels is one of my favorite illustrators and his work with Dr. Bob Curran and all of his supernatural creature books combining mythology and pop culture have been must haves for me for many years.  Together they have collaborated on Vampires, Werewolves, Dark FairiesZombies, Walking With the Green Man, and my personal favorite Lost Lands, Forgotten Realms.  Most of Daniel's work is B & W, but when he gets to do a color piece he really shines in his own gothic sort of way.  Their latest project together is Man-Made Monsters which delves into the mythology surrounding Frankenstein, Golems, and yes even Automatons. A sample chapter on Automatons is now up on his publisher's blog. Publisher's out there give Daniels some more cover work. He could definitely give you a different take on Urban Fantasy covers.

*jaw drops* Wow. Great find. I don't like the actual cover as much. A bit too red.
