The ArtistsThe books of the Warrior Cats series could never be complete without its cover art and illustrations, and this could never be done without a good artist.
This page lists the artists who work on the Warrior Cats series.

He was also a Contributing Editor to Field & Stream for over a decade, where he explored the humorous side of the sportsman's life in prose and pictures.
Owen Richardson is a fairly unknown artist, who was asked to do new covers for the Warriors series.
He stated the following:
I have been fortunate to work with the best designers and directors in bringing these pictures to life; and we have worked hard to reimagine them in a new and beautiful series of covers that might inspire new Clans of readers. I sincerely hope you approve of the new covers. For it is in the imagination of you, the faithful readers of this series that these characters are truly brought to life.
Since beginning work on Warriors, he has create artwork for previous books, which were reprinted with his artwork, instead of the previous work of Wayne McLoughlin.
He has now also taken over the new books, beginning with The Apprentice's Quest. It seems he will be the main artist over the previous artist Wayne McLoughlin from now on.
