Michael Whelan (born Jun. 29, 1950 (69 years ago)) is an American artist of imaginative realism, formerly working for over 30 years as an illustrator specializing in science fiction and fantasy before devoting all his work to a fine art career.

His art has appeared on over 350 book and magazine covers, including many Stephen King novels, most of the Del Rey editions of Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern series, Piers Anthony's Incarnations of Immortality series, and Edgar Rice Burroughs' Barsoom series, Melanie Rawn's Dragon Prince and Dragon Star series, the DAW editions of Michael Moorcock's Elric books, numerous DAW editions of C.

Whelan provided covers and interior illustrations for Stephen King's The Gunslinger and The Dark Tower, the first and last of his Dark Tower books.

Whelan's work can also be seen on the cover of The Jacksons' Victory album, Sepultura (7 pics)'s Beneath the Remains, Arise, Chaos A.D. and Roots albums, Soulfly's Dark Ages, Obituary's Cause of Death, and every album by Elric-influenced metal band Cirith Ungol.
