Here’s what they’re saying about Duncan’s artwork and book illustrations:
"Duncan Long is the real deal. I'd purchase books that he has illustrated the cover
for, even if having no intention of reading it! It's amazing that a person can portray
imagination that vividly!" – Dan Hagerty, Mercenary Graphics
“Duncan Long’s concept illustrations for Werewolves of New Idria have brought the
characters to life.... If the story should move to the screen, Duncan's beautiful
renditions of the Werewolves of New Idria will have been instrumental in it having
done so.” – John Chadwell (coauthor of Werewolves of New Idria with Ron Shusett,
writer/creator of Alien, Total Recall, etc.)
“We’re privileged to know who we think are the two best graphic artists in the entire
world, not just the country, the world. One of them... is Mr. Duncan Long.” — Talk
show host Victor Thorn, Wing TV
“To call him a prolific artist would be understatement, at best. Get yourself a snack
and settle back while Duncan takes you on a wild ride through worlds only he has
dreamt of.” — Reviewer, “Time, Space and Duncan Long,” 3D Millennium, M3 Corporation,
“It would be a complete understatement to say that Duncan Long is a pleasure to work
with. His engaging sense of humor and astonishing creative abilities made my book
cover art experience a joy. For my second novel, Lead Me Not Into Temptation, I
believe that Duncan created one of the most interesting and provocative pieces of
book art that I’ve seen in a long time. I can’t wait to see what he can do for my
next book!” – Dale Allan, author.
Although better known as a freelance magazine and book illustrator, Duncan started
his career in the publishing business as a writer/illustrator putting 13 novels into
print (HarperCollins, Avon Books) as well as nearly 80 non-fiction technical books.
This time spent in the publishing business, seeing it from the author’s side of things
as well as that of an illustrator, gives Duncan great insight into the ins and outs
of the business, and enables him to make suggestions and give advice that often proves
invaluable. And for those new to publishing, the good news is that Duncan is as willing
to work for self-publishing authors and small publishers as he is for established
presses. This enables those new to publishing to take advantage of quality book cover
illustrations with their very first titles.
