Here’s the new Polish cover for Wolves of the Calla, book 5 of Stephen King’s Dark Tower series. I should be doing the covers for the last two books of the series next month.
A few months ago I posted a couple of pieces I did for the forthcoming 10th anniversary edition of Joe Hill’s 20th Century Ghosts, to be published by PS Publishing; below you can see the other five illustrations I did for it. The book will be out in October but is available for pre-order now. It will come in a number of editions: trade (with two alternative covers), signed with illustrated slipcase and deluxe. You can find more info about the book and what each edition includes over at the PS Publishing website.
Here’s my last two interior illustrations for Working for Bigfoot which is out now. You can see the other four interiors here.
Here’s my cover art for the Polish edition of The Wind Through the Keyhole. This was the last book to be written in the Dark Tower series, but chronologically it takes place between volumes four and five.
Time for another Polish Dark Tower cover; this one’s for the fourth volume in the series, Wizard and Glass.
The new Hard-noir and Splatterpunk story collection, Tenderloin Sud 5: Quartieri di Sangue, by Gene O’Neill and Caleb Battiago (pen name of Bram Stoker Awards nominee Alessandro Manzetti) is out now from Kipple Officina Libraria in ebook format in Italian. It contains the stories Broken Lady and Bruised Soul by Gene O’Neill and Kozmic Blues and Heretic Park by Caleb Battiago.
The cover art was originally created for Murder Was My Alibi by Arthur Darknell.
Here’s another of my Polish Dark Tower covers, this time for the third book in the series, The Waste Lands. I’ve already turned in the cover for the fourth book and hope to post the cover here shortly.
This is the cover for Monster Masters – I Segreti dei Maestri dell’Horror (Monster Masters – The Secrets of the Horror Masters), an Italian language horror literature essay edited by Alessandro Manzetti.
It will be published in paperback by Cut Up Publishing at the end of the month and will also be available in major Italian libraries.
The book contains the Italian versions of four horror stories by Richard Laymon, Ramsey Campbell, Graham Masterton and Gary Braunbeck; 30 interviews with horror writers such as Peter Straub and Joe Lansdale; the chapter The Ghost Works by Stephen King from the Italian edition of the essay Stephen King Uncollected Unpublished by Rocky Wood; the shortlist of the 66 horror books to be saved from a new Great Flood.
It will also feature some of my artwork (the cover art was originally created for the Polish edition of Horns) and art by Paolo Di Orazio as well as new photos.
Here’s my cover for the new SF Masterworks edition of Limbo by Bernard Wolfe, to be published by Gollancz. The book won’t be out till April next year, but is available for pre-order now.
Originally we decided to try a more graphical approach and have the map on a solid white background (I also tried a few other colour variations) but afterwards the designer and editor asked for some distressed textures to be added around the edges of the image. I also originally created the figure and map straight on, but extended the image beyond the edges of the cover to allow for the image to be tilted in the layout, which was what was settled on in the final design.
Following on from last week’s cover reveal of the Polish edition of The Gunslinger, here’s my cover art for the second book in the Dark Tower series, The Drawing of the Three. Below you can see the larger versions of the tarot cards I created for the image.
Next up is The Waste Lands which I’m working on now…
