Illustrator for The Warlord’s Series


Nicolas Debon
Versailles, France

Nicolas Debon’s incredible paintings are a big part of the success of the Warlord’s Series. He developed a unique signature for the Warlord’s Series—the dragon fly—and ultimately chose it as his personal logo.  If you look closely at the illustrations, you will discover many dragonflies, historic Asian warrior symbols of courage and daring.  Nicolas also adds a horse in each book to celebrate Mrs. Pilegard’s childhood.
