Today I am mostly listening to...

...Jarboe and Swans. Sitting at home with Photoshop in front of me I've had both these on loop from MySpace. Jarboe's voice is haunting and wonderful. And I love Swans cover of 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' by Joy Division, one of my 'Desert Island' records. Anyway... must draw more, but here's a pic of Jarboe...

To Hell They Belonged

Oh dear... here's another Pulp C0ver. This was a bit of an experiment to see if I could do this in a day. It took a bit longer as I spent a while trying to find particular fonts, and the original sketch was a bit older, but most of the painting took a day. Not quite sure of the girl on the left's pose...

A Pocketful of Death

I was just playing around with an old image for another project and decided to adapt it into another mock pulp cover. It sort of works... Quite on oldie really...

A couple of recent bits...

I love Pulp covers, so here's another one in my intermittent series... Got a couple more in the works... The other image is the pic that was accepted for Spectrum! It's Lucy Westenra from Dracula, at least my take on her! Post beheading! How pleasant... ;)

I Done a Book

Last year I was asked to author a book for Ilex Press and Harper Collins in their series. Including Fantasy Art Now. Mine was to be Erotic Fantasy Art Now. I didn't have the time to do it alone so I asked my good friend Jonny Duddle, Duddlebug to co-author it with me. We had three months to produce a book which should have taken over a year, and in the end I think we did pretty damn well. We gave the publishers a list of artists we'd like in and they either said yay or nay. In the end we worked with some of our favourite artists, and made plenty of contacts, all who agreed to submit art, mainly new, some specifically for the book, and some older pieces.

Thanks to Henning Ludvigsen and Natascha Roeoesli for the name drop, but mainly thanks to all the contributers for making this a fabulous and perhaps too tasteful a book! ;)

If you fancy a copy it's available from Amazon UK and US:
