The Walking Dead Sketch Cover

The Walking Dead full marker color cover

The Walking Dead inked cover

I was at Wizard World comic convention Portland, OR in Feb. vending next to legendary Tim Vigil (Faust), he was inking up a sketch cover and I asked him how artists got a hold of those. He handed me one and said "if you sell it you owe me two bucks." So I started drawing up man v undead conflict. I got the inks done at the convention. Then later colored it with Spectrum Noir markers. Now I owe Tim $2.

Skin & Bone Slinky

My friend Helen Hopley commissioned me to draw up the "Slinky" creatures from her husband Martin Roberts story as a gift to him for Christmas. It is always fun to work with friends and attempt to put images to their words.
This was a challenge as to show the scope of how big and weird these are while retaining some detailed understanding of what they consist of which is flesh and bone.

Stag in Flight cover reveal

From Sam Cowan, editor of Dim Shores Press on the cover reveal "Stag in Flight by S.P. Miskowski with art by Nick Gucker has a new cover design, courtesy of the remarkable Matthew Revert. This is the first time I have brought in an outside designer for anything and we are all very happy with what Matthew did with Nick’s art. Stag in Flight will be released on May 1st at The H.P.
