doctor sleep_fade awayAbove are three pieces of art I created for Cemetery Dance’s deluxe special limited edition of Stephen King’s forthcoming Doctor Sleep novel.  Doctor Sleep is the follow-up to The Shining (one of my favourite Stephen King novels) and revisits Dan Torrance, its young protagonist, now middle-aged but still haunted by the events at the Overlook Hotel.

It will be published in three editions: the top image is for the ‘Gift Edition’ cover; the middle is for the ‘Limited Edition’; and the bottom one is a wraparound image for the cover of the ‘Lettered Edition’.  I will also be providing a number of colour interior illustrations.

    The cover artwork isn’t bad but the typography for the title and author is atrocious and really takes away from the artwork.

    Holy shit, Vinny. I’d only seen the first one before, and while all three are fantastic, the ghostly image coming out of the spray can might be my favorite thing you’ve done. That is truly remarkable art.
