The Outer Dark


Illustration design I did for fantastic writer Scott Nicolay's The Outer Dark podcast on Project iRadio.
The one request Scott had for this piece was an homage to Lee Brown Coye's "Sticks" which appear in a number of Coye's works of art. Coye is a personal favorite of mine, known for his weird scratch-board illustrations, featured in Weird Tales magazine.

The Outer Dark is a new podcast where host, Scott Nicolay presents weekly interviews with authors, artists, and other voices from the dark end of the spectrum, with an emphasis on what’s happening NEXT in the Weird Renaissance.

Nicolay's first show, Livia Llewellyn: We Become Our Own Horror,  aired 6/23, and he already has an exciting lineup booked all the way through the end of July including  Jayaprakash Satyamurthy (6/30), S.P. Miskowski (7/7), John Langan (7/14), Nicole Cushing (7/21), and Silvia Moreno-Garcia (7/28), with a special surprises planned for August as well.

As Nicolay notes: Big thanks to  Jess Roberts, Jim Adams, and the Project iRadio team, and to artist Nick Gucker, who created the stunning logo for The Outer Dark! T-shirts with that logo are available from SkurvyInk.com here.

Spectral Press t-shirts!


Spectral Press is starting to issue t-shirts with previous published Spectral cover art. My cover art for John Llewellyn Probert's novella "The Hammer of Dr. Valentine" is one such piece that you can wear! Very thrilled to see this happen, thanks to editor and purveyor or Spectral Press, Simon Marshall-Jones!
