For the past 8 years since I originally created these covers, I have been asked on a weekly basis at the very least (literally) to make prints.
Originally I tried and Harry Potter lawyers quickly came after me for broaching even the thought of it, so I avoided it at all costs. BUT here's a thought, would you guys be interested in prints IF there was NO text on the prints, just images alone. Just my art and not the Harry Potter name or book title.
Does that still interest you?
Or is the whole thing thats fun about them just the fact that they say Harry Potter which makes them look more like retro book covers?
I think this is the first Kickstarter I’ve been a part of and I’m excited for it! A hardcover collection of short stories by Orrin Grey, cover and interior illustrations by me and published by Strix Publishing.
If you like ghost or supernatural or horror stories, or if you like
monster drawings, or if you like the feel of cloth bound books with gold
foiling, you should totally support us.
Orrin is easily the best writer of short fiction in the genre this day
and age (in my humble opinion) and the only real modern supernatural
work I will read. (and not just cause he’s a friend, he’s real good)
Even if you don’t like ghosts or books or reading or art, maybe you
like me? Every dollar counts towards our goal, alternatively a share is
nice too, to get this in front of someone who does like things.
Very excited about this book, I worked on it about a year ago and its out now.
It's a collection of Poe's tales that I not only got to design the cover for but numerous illustrations for each story, and the best part is the book is in motion. Check out the amazon page and you can see a video of some of the screens in motion. Cool stuff for sure
I have an another book for Kindle Illustrated coming out later this year too.
I've been working on this Carnacki comic since 2010 when I first got the idea for it.
It's been a slow ordeal with it just being in my free time, but I've slowly built the world and the characters and everything to a point to where I feel set to start sharing it with everyone. I've plotted out the first three volumes of comics, the first of which should be (barring unforseen ghosts) coming out later this year.
It should be noted that this is a comic inspired by the character created by William Hope Hodgson.
The Carnacki here is not meant to be the exact character from
Hodgson’s original stories as I could never successfully add onto what
he wrote about his Carnacki. This is a new story of the character I have
loved for many years, as I see him and the world he inhabits in my
Looking back on these they are like a flapjack journal of what happened
this year. Covering life events, what we were learning at the time, what
books we were reading, what we were celebrating, etc. Here’s to more carb art next year!
