This was also the first rendition of Admiral Gold Peak that made sense to me...

I'm a recent addict of the whole Harrington series...I bought "Beautiful Friendship" on a whim because I like sci-fi and animals, and the cover art intrigued me.   When I realized that book was meant for young adults, I let it sit until one day I forgot my ipad, and was forced to read this book while on the treadmill.   When I realized there was only one more book, I was totally bummed out, and wondered if this author had anything else.   And, lo, 17 books later...!!!  My curiosity grew about whether my interpretations of tree cats....and the characters themselves..we're anything close to what I'd been imaging, so I finally googled "treecat" and checked images.  I actually haven't seen any of your renditions of the 'cats, but I've felt that your renditions of everyone else are RIGHT on the money.  ESPECIALLY that cover with Albrect Detweiller.  Man, those evil, burning, glowing, eyes!!!    Awesome.

Well, in fact discovering that you still have 17 books to read was a good surprise no ? :D
I'm happy that you like my work:)
And you can find my vision of treecats on these covers :)…………

Pretty cool work there! Isabel Bardasano's one of my favorite characters :)

Me too. That's why I wanted to represent her on one cover :)

You nailed Mike Henke. :D That's absolutely perfect! And I can see a family resemblance between her and Queen Elizabeth III as you drew her for _Mission of Honor_.

Yes it was my goal. I wanted to show that they are in the same family. But it was a little hard because they must be different even if there are common points.
I like Henke a lot more without Afro hair she's supposed to be sporting in the books. Looks more "natural" this way...

well, when I had to draw this illustration I have thought that, at present, black people coif their hair as they want.

So, in a futuristic universe, I've decided to give her a cool hairdressing. Not too fun because she is a military officer, but I didn't want to make something "afro-basic".

I've not bothered to comment on 'every' one of these Genkkis, because I'd be saying the same thing over and over again, these covers are brilliant! Like others I love the way you capture each of the books 'highlights' with out actually giving away the story itself, and this and your Flag in Exile book covers are perhaps the two I love the most (despite loving all of them), how Henke is captured in this to me matches everything that has been put by webber into the books the grace and yet power of the royal line that runs in her blood along with the hardness and yet at the same time 'softness' that is described, after all one hardly goes through what she has over the years with out becoming hard heh, people tend to forget that Hanke has grown as much as Honor over the course of the main books and the sub/side books. The other comments I've put in Flag In Exile.

Keep up the great work on these I'd love to see them on some of the ENGLISH novels presuming I can ever find a bookstore here to buy his books in hardformat rather then resorting to buying them in Epublisher formats :(
