Last year I was lucky enough to be commissioned to create a cover illustration for an upcoming book entitled “The Darkness Returns” by Michael D. Nadeau. When I first read the description for this painting I immediately thought that this commission would be challenging, but a lot of fun at the same time. And, as it turns out, I was right on both counts! I really enjoyed creating this evil and eerie character, as I consider myself a figurative artist first and foremost, but I was quite surprised at how much I also enjoyed the challenge of creating the world in which he inhabits. If you’re interested in finding out more about this book it will be available on July 12th and is published by Kyanite Publishing.
