Lee Moyer is an American painter, illustrator, graphic designer, and Web designer.


Moyer's early work was in watercolor and oils. In 1989, he changed his focus to digital art. He worked for ten years as a Docent and Naturalist Illustrator at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History.[1]

Moyer states his primary influences are Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Arts & Crafts, Classic American Illustrators, propaganda art and the Pre-Raphaelites.[2]


Corporate clients include Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures, 20th Century Fox, Discovery Channel, Electronic Arts, Hasbro, DDB Worldwide, Upper Deck, CareerBuilder, BET, McGraw Hill, Alliance Theatre, Dark Horse, IDW Publishing, Broadway Play Publishing Inc. and the National Zoo in Washington, D.C.[3]

Notable works include posters for musicians Tori Amos and Melissa Auf der Maur (Hole, and The Smashing Pumpkins), as well as Laurel and Hardy paintings for the covers of their DVD box set collections,[4] and the cover for the documentary Lovecraft: Fear of the Unknown.[5]

He was featured with 13 leading graphic designers in the exhibition, "PIXEL: Artists Who Use the Computer."[6]

His painting "Theora" won the 2012 Chesley Award for Best Cover Illustration: Magazine. He was nominated for 3 awards in 2012.[7]

Moyer painted The 2012 Literary Pin-Up Calendar for the charity Worldbuilders, which donates proceeds to Heifer International. It featured illustrations of classic authors.[8][9] Another was published in 2013 featuring modern fantasy authors. Moyer said that he enjoyed creating the works while "...riffing on the style of pin-up great George Petty."[10]

Moyer met artist Michael Wm. Kaluta while working on a music video for the Alan Parsons Project. In 2009, after showing Kaluta samples of his digital color technique, Kaluta and author Elaine Lee hired Moyer as colorist on their comic book series Starstruck.[11] IDW released a remastered edition of the work that featured expanded art by Kaluta, and Moyer's new color art and designs.[12] Moyer also colored the cover of the original cast recording Starstruck Audioplay CD from The AudioComics Company.[13]

Moyer collaborated with game designer Keith Baker on the board game "The Doom That Came To Atlantic City".[14] The project was mired in production problems that resulted in a Federal Trade Commission investigation that became the first federal crowdfunding prosecution.[15] The game was picked up by Cryptozoic in July 2013.[16]

Moyer produced Dungeons & Dragons interior art from 2004-2013, including: Eberron Campaign Setting, Stormwrack, Player's Handbook, Dungeon Master's Guide, Draconomicon, and Martial Power.[17] He was creative director of Digital Addiction, which received a nomination for a Webby Award in 1999.[citation needed] He was also lead illustrator for "13th Age" and its expansion "13 True Ways".[18]
