This ink drawing was created to be the cover to issue #2 of "ZFW: Zombies of Foreign Wars". It was included as the inside back cover to issue #1. Unfortunately, issue #2 was never printed so is planned to be collected in the trade paperback edition of the series. Colors and titling were handled by the publisher.

Book cover for "Stories from the Chapel". For this cover, I painted an acrylic painting and then set the type. This is for an anthology to benefit a fundraiser to restore the Evans City Chapel, as seen in the opening scenes of "Night of the Living Dead". The original artwork will also be auctioned off as part of the fundraiser.

Cover art for "Death's Too Short". I created an ink and ink wash illustration for this that I digitally colored. The author had initially hired someone else to handle the cover so the layout was already set up. I dropped in my high-resolution artwork and did some minor adjustment to the typography. I worked directly with the author, who is also the publisher.

No one does Horror like Robert- we met purly by accident of knowing mutual people via Twitter then ran into each other at a con. His amazing 'creeptastic' work is something anyone who does horror should aspire to.

Book cover for "Avery Nolan: Private Dick of the Dead". I created the digital painting, designed and produced the print-ready cover (as well as the final cover file for the electronic version). I worked directly with the author, who self published the book. This one was fun because the author wanted a noir / pulpish look to the artwork.

About Me:
I am a self-taught artist who works with a variety of mediums including pencil, color pencil, ink, watercolor, acrylic and digital ... sometimes a combination of mediums (i.e., ink and digital). I specialize in horror / science fiction / fantasy and comics-related artwork.

My artwork has appeared on the covers of several novels and anthologies from small-press horror authors and publishers. "Tickling A Dead Man: Stories About George" is my self-published comic book in which I relentlessly torture my misanthropic title character by forcing him to face his deepest fears and anxieties. My comics also appear within the pages of the “Best New Zombie Tales” series from Books of the Dead Press. I've contributed pinup art to publications by Bluewater Comics, Creator’s Edge Press, Angry Dog...
