Marv The Library Policeman

February 17, 2021

I first illustrated the character of Marv, The Library Policeman (who is the mascot for the Stephen King news website, Lilja’s Library) for the cover of the Shining in the Dark anthology.  Now, some years later, Lilja himself commissioned me to do a full character illustration for Marv.  It was really fun collaborating with Lilja, coming up with the design and throwing ideas back and forth about what details we could include in this first full body visualisation of the character.

    I do care for (your) Marv for a lot of reasons. Your cover of Shining in the Dark was brilliant but now you have surpassed yourself. These pliers are so deliciously scary!

      Thank you! The pliers were a last minute extra touch that Lilja suggested at the end. It definitely makes him even scarier!!

    Hi Vinnie- I have to complain that you are using an unauthorized picture of me for your cover. Hopefully things across the pond are better than they are in the colonies. Best to you!
