Luis Royo and "Dead Moon" books

Luis Royo is a Spanish artist born in Olalla, a village in the Aragonese province of Teruel.[1] He is best known for his fantasy illustrations published in numerous art books,[2] magazines such as Heavy Metal[3] and various other media including book and music CD covers, video games and Tarot cards.[4]

Beginning his career as a furniture designer, he was attracted to the comics industry in the late 1970s by the work of artists like Enki Bilal and Moebius, and in 1979 he turned to art as a full time career.[1] Within a few years, he was publishing art within and on the covers of such magazines as Comix Rambla Internacional, El Vibora, Heavy Metal, National Lampoon and Comic Art as well as providing cover illustrations for publishers including Tor Books, Berkley Books, Avon, Warner Books, Bantam Books and others.
