Top 10 List: Nathália Suellen aka Lady Symphonia’s Favorite Covers

October 18, 2012 Guests 2

We’re a little obsessed with cover art here at All Things Urban Fantasy.  We have weekly Cover Art Coverage posts, a massive Pinterest board with close to 500 cover reveals pictures, and of course the annual Paranormal Cover Art Awards every December.  I’ve got fangirl crushes on cover artists like Dan Dos Santos, Chris McGrath, Tony Mauro, Gene Mollica, and today’s guest Nathália Suellen aka Lady Symphonia (the artist responsible for the Cover of the Year in the 2011 Paranormal Cover Art Awards).  I have spent hours and hours pouring over her website and devianART gallery.  If her name isn’t familiar to you, her covers certainly are. Authors like Lauren Kate, Gena Showalter, Jenna Black, Allison Pang, and numerous indie authors have her to thank for their gorgeous covers.

I indulged in a not-so-small fangirl squee when Nathália emailed me about dropping by.  She’s hoping to dispell the notion that she only works for The Big Six and we were only too happy to turn over the blog to her and help.  Nathália is counting down her top ten favorite covers that she has created (for both traditional and independently published titles).  What’s even more exciting is that we have most of the original/concept art for each cover too.  Just click the covers below to see them.  And if you are looking for a designer for your book, Nathália is entirely in a class by herself.  Visit LadySymphonia.com or see her contact details below if you are interested.  

Top 10 List

Nathália Suellen aka Lady Symphonia Favorite Covers

10

A Brush of Darkness by Allison Pang

Another work to Simon and Schuster. Colorful and mysterious to my lovely Alison Pang.

9

The Splendor Falls by Rosemary Clement-Moore

Work to Random House. My very first book.

8

Revelations by Genevieve Pearson

The story behind this book is so nice, I tried my best to make it real. So deep and conceptual work.

7

Spiderwork by LK Rigel

Work to LK RIGEL. Love this cover.

6

The Garden of Perpetual Slumber by Amanda Stevens

A redo of an old art of mine, specially done for Amanda Steven’s new book. This art is so much the book story, was a big coincidence. 

5

The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff

Although I would love the challenge to make something much more creepy than the USA cover, I feel very proud of doing the UK cover. The Simon and Schuster team wanted something more real and totaly not scary, so be dark this time was impossible. However was funny and  a dangerous choice  to imagine how Mackie would be

Last Kiss Goodnight by Gena Showalter

One of my last covers to Simon and Schuster. I doubt I could paint such amazing dress again. Was a great experience, loved the result.

3

Above by Leah Bobet

Work to Scholastic Publishing. Above is so special to me, it’s a really magical cover, mature and adult though.

Here by Denise Grover Swank

Work to Denise Grover. Very macabre, cold and depressed. Killer combination.

Splintered by A.G. Howard

Work to Abrams Books (2012), different concept of Alice in Wonderland, now with lot of bugs and a bit more mad Alice. A big mix of Tim Burton and McGee’s Alice.
