JOEY HI-FI is the alter-ego of award-winning illustrator & book cover designer, Dale Halvorsen. He operates from his not so secret lair in Cape Town, South Africa. Although his main focus is book cover design, he enjoys working on a variety of projects - from editorial illustration to packaging to comic books.

His book cover design work has been awarded the British Science Fiction Association (BSFA) award for Best Artwork in 2010 and 2014, the British Fantasy Award for Best Artist in 2014 and the Wojtek Siudmak Award at the Grand Prix de l'Imaginaire for his work on the 'Zoo City' book cover (by Lauren Beukes) in 2010.

Besides working on various book cover commissions, he is also currently co-writing a comic book series with Lauren Beukes for Vertigo (DC Comics).
