The week that was

It’s been a week of diversity and creativity.

The Easter weekend, which was over far too quickly, gave me a bit of time to do a few extra-curricular activities in the area of design.

I put the call out to a few author friends to see if they needed any promotional poster artwork done and thankfully some work came my way. I did the posters for G.N. Braun, Jake Eliott and Travis Heermann at mate’s rates (free), but the posters did help me secure a paid gig for some cover artwork, which I’ll reveal in the near future. It was fun to get back on Photoshop and stretch the brain a bit. The posters I designed are below:

 
If you have a book coming out and like the idea of a poster to promote it, just contact me at darkscrybe@gmail.com
I’ve also started contributing reviews to Australian specfic review and news site Thirteen O’Clock. I’ve reviewed Stephen M Irwin’s The Broken Ones and Cemetery Dance #65 so far, but the site is generally well worth a look.

I also recently submitted two short stories to separate markets – Midnight Echo Magazine #8 and Dark Prints Press’ A Killer Among Demons anthology. Fingers crossed on those. Meanwhile I’m eagerly anticipating the publication of Midnight Echo #7, which will feature my comic art for Allure of the Ancients, written by Mark Farrugia. The issue is due on May 31.

Meanwhile things are progressing with Witch-Hunts with the publisher’s text edits being worked on at the moment. You can pre-order the graphic novel I illustrated for writers Rocky Wood and Lisa Morton HERE or HERE. It should go on sale in the next two months or so. Can’t wait for that.
