Winterbauer Arts

My name is Mike Winterbauer and I have been a working artist for thirty years. I am most notably known for my work in illustration having done a string of classic computer game covers in the 80’s and 90’s. You may have seen some of the covers I painted which included Might and Magic Clouds of Xeen and Darkside of Xeen and interior maps, Wing Commander, Solstice, Wolf Child and Power Blade to name a few. I enjoy creating new traditional paintings which are tied to my earlier work but I also continue creating new work in digital painting and combining digital painting with traditional painting. Recently, my work received worldwide attention after I self published my book Classic Game Covers about my experiences being an artist. It is an honest and humorous read about being an artist and how I created my art. My wife Renee and I have just published our book IF that Renee wrote and I illustrated. We are very excited that IF was a finalist in the Pacific Book Awards 2018 and won Honorable Mention in the Purple Dragonfly Book Awards 2018!
