I’ve mentioned before, probably a few times, how important art is to me and especially how important it is in my writing. My first book, Red Sky Blues, contains art by the singularly talented Will Kirkby. The pieces he did for it really bring the book to life. I’m consistently stunned and amazed by the work Will did. So it should come as no surprise that, with my upcoming book Darkweird, there be even more art.
The artists I’ve been fortunate enough to work with in this endeavor are all brilliant. The art they’ve turned in is nothing short of amazing, and I can’t wait for you all to see it. But, you’ll have to wait until Darkweird itself comes out. Until then, it’s top secret, but I promise you it’s all well worth waiting for.
This isn’t all just a tease, though. I wouldn’t do that to you. This time around I’ve been hard at work over the last few months on a few pieces of my own to add to the book. I don’t get nearly as much time as I’d like to paint and draw anymore, and every moment I got to work on these pieces was stolen or borrowed. Mostly stolen. That said, I’m incredibly proud of what I’ve accomplished, which is saying something. Anyways. I’ll quit rambling, and get to the real reason for this whole mess. Here, below, you’ll find the trio of pictures that I’ll be personally contributing to Darkweird.
