Compulsion and Psychonaut

Books, Drawings, Illustration, ink, webstore, Works for Sale

I just finished these two decorative ink drawings. They were done with carbon black acrylic ink on heavy artboard. They are available for sale (and on sale!) on my webstore.

Just a reminder that I have a selection of larger works done over the past year available for viewing, and sale on my website. Check them out here.

On another note, Suntup Editions announced a new edition of Clive Barker’s novel Imajica today. It looks beautiful. Constant readers will remember that I did some illustrations for the Harper Perennial edition of the book to accompany the appendix by my friend Hans Rueffert. I’m pleased that the material we created gets a walk-on in this edition as well.

Thanks, Richard.

Digging around in my drives I came across this piece from the mid-90s. It was one of a number of images that I created for a collectible card game (CCG) based on Clive Barker’s novel Imajica. The project was created by Zehrapushu, a company co-founded by my good friend Hans Rueffert. This was the first project that I did in connection with Clive Barker. It was the project that started my illustration career through a chance response to a newsgroup call for artists. Life will take you interesting places if you let it.
