  • Note: Keith Parkinson was an American fantasy artist and illustrator known for his many book covers, as well as game artwork for games such as Everquest, Magic: The Gathering and Vanguard: Saga of Heroes. He attended elementary school at Weinberger School, San Diego, and graduated from Okemos High School, Lansing, Michigan. During high school, and inspired by the work of J.R.R. Tolkien, he started painting sweeping landscapes occupied by fearsome monsters and went on to graduate from Kendall School of Design in 1980. As a staff artist at Advertising Posters, he had a direct hand in the artwork of many of the most popular games that mark the beginning of the video game industry. Then, during a five year stint as a TSR staff artist he contributed to projects ranging from book and magazine covers, to calendars, game boxes and modules. Titles include Dragonlance, Forgotten Realms, Gamma World and Amazing Stories. His next seven years were spent primarily doing book covers for the New York publishing market. Clients included Random House, Bantam and Penguin Books; covers for best selling authors include Terry Goodkind, David Eddings, Anne McCaffrey, Orson Scott Card, and Terry Brooks. In 2002, along with several EverQuest colleagues, he co-founded Sigil Games Online, Inc. Among his many responsibilities as Art Director he created and maintained the overall style of the game and contributed to in-house concept art, in-game art, posters and promotional material.
