British Invasion

Cover for a collection of 21 stories of Horror and the Dark Fantastic, edited by Christopher Golden, Tim Lebbon and James A Moore. published by Cemetery Dance. This was a great idea from the editors but turned out not to be as straightforward as you might think. I had quite a bit of trouble shooting reference photos for this. I tried draping a sheet over a skull (which I just happened to have around the place) but with poor results until I made the sheet wet. This meant I could place folds in the material in the way I wanted and they would more or less stay put. The results were spookily Jamesian.

Horror Stories

Cover for an anthology of stories edited by Susan Price and published by Kingfisher. The book includes stories by Stephen King, John Steinbeck and Philip K Dick.

My original sketch had one of the buttons hanging by a thread but the publishers thought that was a step too far.

Descending

Personal piece. This painting started with the staircase. A year or two earlier I’d had considerable trouble drawing a spiral staircase. You can imagine the perspective on such a thing can get pretty complex and I was never happy that I’d nailed it completely. While I was searching for reference I came across a picture of a sweeping staircase like this and thought it would make a great compositional device. When I decided to put Mr. And Mrs. Vampire in it I wanted them to look really dead so I kept all the colours subdued except for the red dress for contrast. Mr. V bears a passing resemblance to Christopher Lee, but who better?

Ghosts and Grisly Things

Book cover for a collection of 20 Ramsey Campbell short stories, published by Pumpkin Books. I have a great deal of respect for Ramsey Campbell and was delighted to be approached to do this cover. I think of it as my 'convention painting'. I heard Ramsey read part of this story at a Fantasy Convention. A few years later I was asked to do the cover while at another Fantasy Con. I presented the rough at the next Convention and the book was launched at the next. The lift (elevator) is from one of the convention hotels. When we decided to have an impromptu meeting about the cover in the hotel bar (where else?) I went up to my room to collect my rough drawing. As I walked along the dimly lit and deserted hotel corridor I quite distinctly heard a child's voice close over my left shoulder say "Hello". There was no one else in the corridor and no other sound from any of the rooms. Too much time hanging around with weird writers I suppose...

Shudder Again

Penguin paperback cover for an anthology of "22 more tales of sex and horror", edited by Michele Slung. Tales of Sex and Horror eh? As the first book had a woman on the front the publishers naturally wanted a man on the second. My first pencil drawing had the skeletal hand with a bony finger on the man's lips but it was decided that this departed too much from the first cover so I altered things to the way you see them. I spent a long time trying to get the hand to look natural. About two days after I delivered the final artwork I found, by chance, a plastic model of the bones of the hand which would have made perfect reference. Sod's law!
