The Red King

 This is the first book cover I made for the Apocalypse Weird series (also designed the brand logo).

The Red King is available now on Amazon, FOR FREE so go get it!

The next five books in the series which I'm doing covers for drop on Feb 23rd. All at once for a huge launch of the series. Which its a really cool project that you can read a little about here.

A brief excerpt on what exactly Apocalypse Weird is:
 "Imagine a vast world, highly imaginative, dangerous, epic, and with a multitude of story lines, characters and plots. Now imagine this world created not by one single author but by fifteen of them. Each story has its own arc within the parameters of this world. Each author has the freedom to create his or her own story leading up to a specific point… where they meet. From then on, readers decide which characters advance, fight the ultimate fight, and participate in the end game, the final chapter in Apocalypse Weird. There will be crossovers and so-called Easter Eggs — points of connection between the stories. The Easter Eggs, together with the multitude of story lines all become the fabric of a greater tapestry that is Apocalypse Weird. There will be room for other authors to develop stories and side characters within the already created sandbox. Hell, Apocalypse Weird will even have its own WIKI! Imagine the MARVEL universe but with books rather than comics. The scope of the project is as vast and boundless as the imagination of each author and the world itself."

Pretty neat huh?

This one was great fun.
I got to both illustrate the cover and some interior illustrations. 

Since I work on so many book covers I rarely take the time to read the actual book, as thats just not practical, but in this case I did so I could have a better idea for how the interior illustrations should look. And I have to say the story is quite fun, I look forward to when my daughter gets a bit older and I can read it to her. The author was a pleasure to work with too (here's hoping there's a sequel)

Out now on Amazon!

Blackthorn concepts

Unused cover design concepts, these won't see the light of day in stores.
But they can see the internet light.

There's a few of these I really liked so I may repurpose them for something else in the future.

Thought I'd show the full spread for this one since the illustration ended up being on the entire spread. Looks like a real fun book!

Gardinel's almost gone forever

We have around 30 copies left of the book, going down from 100 in just a weeks time! wow

If you like haunted houses, and spooky stories, and supporting artists you like, consider getting one before they are gone forever and you are haunted with the ghost of regret.
