News Regarding Books Involving Stephen King And Thomas Ligotti

I learned a few weeks ago that my illustration of the Mist story by Stephen King will have detail shots used as the end pages as well as be featured as a two page spread somewhere in the upcoming gigantic artbook titled "Knowing Darkness: Artists Inspired By Stephen King" with none other than the director of the recent Mist film, Frank Darabont, writing the introduction. The book will be expensive but worth every dollar given the amazing printing quality and vastness of visual content in the book being published by Centipede Press. You can preorder the book here ranging from several hundred dollars for the standard version to somewhere over one thousand for the bells and whistles version. If you have the previously released H.P Lovecraft artbook from Centipede Press that I had artwork in, this book will be of the same size, but with more pages, and make a nice companion to that book.

I'm also incredibly honored to announce that I will be doing the cover to the upcoming reprint of Thomas Ligotti's "Songs of a Dead Dreamer" with the blessing of Thomas Ligotti himself. The book will be published by Subterranean Press next year. An article regarding the reprint can be viewed here.
