Richard A. Kirk is a Canadian author, illustrator and visual artist. His recent fiction includes the short fantasy novel The Lost Machine, and the forthcoming Necessary Monsters (Resurrection House, 2o17). Richard is represented by Martha Millard, at Sterling Lord Literistic.
Richard has illustrated many works by Clive Barker, Caitlin R. Kiernan, Christopher Golden, China Mieville, the rock band Korn and others. He exhibits his personal artwork internationally.
Richard’s visual art is drawn from an interest in the forms and processes of the natural world. He explores these themes through the creation of meticulous drawings, which often depict chimerical creatures and protean landscapes. Metamorphosis is an underlying narrative in all of Richard’s work.
