Children of the Mist for Pacific Monsters from Fox Spirit Press
Posted 2 years ago and submitted by Eugene Smith | Share link:

In the spirit of Halloween I’m sharing one of three illustrations I contributed for “Pacific Monsters“, an anthology series that focuses on regional lore from the Pacific Islands. This is the fourth volume to be published by Fox Spirit Press, along with European Monsters, African Monsters, and Asian Monsters. It’s a great pleasure to have artwork of mine accompanying brilliant stories in the horror genre. This illustration is done for a story about a group of hikers in New Zealand who encounter some not too friendly “fairy” folk known as the Patupaiarehe.

"Eugene Smith is one of my very favorite illustrators, and I've worked with a ton. He has illustrated 8 or 9 books for my company (including several award winners & at least one New York Times bestseller). His illustrations are always packed with imaginative and rewarding details. He brings a million creative ideas to every assignment. He makes terrific use of light and shadow. He never cuts corners. And he has never, ever missed a deadline. We just hired him for a new project and I can't wait to hire him again."
