New Horror, Noir and Dark Suspense Magazine NOW SCREAM

September 14, 2020

One of the projects I’m currently working on is some cover art for a new quarterly horror, noir and dark suspense magazine that will be launching on December 10th.  Amongst the contents of issue 1 will be a lead story by Ramsey Campbell, a feature written by Simon Clark on The Shining for a section called ‘You Must Read This Book’ and an interview with Joe R. Lansdale.

I’m very excited to be doing the cover for this first issue.  As a sneak peak, you can see my rough sketch for the cover concept below.    Keep checking back for the reveal of the finished cover and more details about the magazine.

The cover of the current issue (#64, Sep 2020) of The Dark magazine features my artwork once again.  You may recognise it as one of the pieces I did for Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep.

This issue features new stories by Wennimareba Klobah Collins (Call Them Children) and Tobi Ogundiran (The Goatkeeper’s Harvest) and two reprints from Priya Sharma (Feral) and Kristi DeMeester (The Quiet Forms of Belonging)

Fictions: Health and Social Care Re-imagined, a series of near-future science-fiction stories launches today.  This project brings together four SF authors and one artist, working with Future Care Capital to create 12 stories and accompanying artwork, released one a month, to examine near-future issues in health and social care to inspire debate and new thinking among practitioners and policy-makers.

Fictions: Health and Social Care Re-imagined

July 10, 2020

I’m very excited to be involved with a special project in conjunction with Infinity Plus and Future Care Capital.  The project brings together four SF authors (Keith Brooke, Anne Charnock, Stephen Palmer, Liz Williams) and one artist (yours truly!) to create twelve stories and accompanying artwork exploring near-future issues in health and social care.  The aim of the project is to inspire debate and new thinking among health and social care practitioners and policy-makers, through thought-povoking and challenging fiction.  Starting in July 2020, one story a month will take a key issue and examine its implications for people on the ground: patients, carers, practitioners and all those close to them.

Fictions: Health and Social Care Re-Imagined will be launched 21st July 2020 with stories being published monthly for free online on the FCC website.  Some themes the stories will cover include disease tourism, uses of virtual reality in care and widening adoption of self-diagnosis apps.  I will be creating four pieces of art, each of which can be divided into three smaller images to accompany each of the stories.  You can see the first full piece of art below.

Future Care Capital is a UK charity whose main aim is to drive debate and policy formation in the areas of health and social care. As part of this, they fund relevant projects, including this story series, and are active in advising in parliament and elsewhere.  As a provider of insight and analysis, FCC uses campaigns, policy papers and a supporting programme of events to inform public policy.  It also has a keen interest in how technology can transform health and social care outcomes, which will be a focus of its policy activities and wider partnership work.

For press and media queries you can contact the project’s coordinator and editor Keith Brooke.

The Girl Who Builds Monsters

May 5, 2020

I’m very excited to announce THE GIRL WHO BUILDS MONSTERS, a new children’s book I co-created with author Brian James Freeman. This is the first children’s picture book I’ve illustrated (something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time!) and this project’s been two and a half years in the making, so I’m thrilled that I can finally reveal this project to everyone!

It’s a magical, timeless tale, suitable for all ages, about a young girl named Emma who finds some rejected doll parts in her grandfather’s doll factory and assembles them into her own ‘monster dolls’.  She loves these special dolls and finds out just how special they are when a couple of burglars sneak into their home one night…

The book will be published by Cemetery Dance in September 2020 and is available for preorder now.  It’ll be available as a trade hardback which can be purchased directly from Cemetery Dance and some other retailers such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble.  In addition, it will also be available as a signed & slipcased hardcover limited edition and signed & traycased lettered edition which can be ordered direct from Cemetery Dance.  Both these special signed editions will include an extra 32 pages of bonus material featuring a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the book, with sketches, production art and author and artist notes. Find out more details over at thegirlwhobuildsmonsters.com.

Over the coming weeks I’ll be posting more artwork for the book, including various sketches and production art, on the book’s Instagram page @thegirlwhobuildsmonsters so follow for some exclusive art peeks! In the meantime check out the character images and a few spreads from the book below.
