If you have picked up any Science Fiction or Urban Fantasy series lately, chances are you have discovered the incredible artwork of Daniel Dos Santos. He has done all the covers for Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson and Alpha & Omega series.
Two of Dan Dos Santos's paintings have been nominated for this year's Chesley Award:
Best Paperback of 2009: Hunting Ground
Best Hardcover of 2009: Green
I am posting a collection of his Patricia Briggs covers, but if you go to his site, you can see his other amazing illustrations for book covers, trading cards, and wallpapers. You must go check his work out!

While I don't necessarily see Mercy or Anna as he has portrayed them on each of the covers, there is no denying that the covers capture the magic of the books. These illustrations are mesmerizing and I love just looking at them.
