Darkscrybe gets a facelift!

Originally, this blog was solely supposed to focus on my writing, but given the amount of art-related projects I’m involved in I’ve decided to finally include them on this page, hence the blog’s re-branding.
The art I create, whether it be for book covers, posters, comics or magazines, I’m now going to post on this blog, in conjunction with my writing endeavours.
Creating art is obviously a very different beast to writing and I hope to share the process I use here and hopefully generate a bit more interest in my artwork.

So what am I working on right now?

I just finished five small watercolour paintings which will serve as the “corner art” for the forthcoming issue 9 of Midnight Echo Magazine, which is due out in May from the Australian Horror Writers Association.

Below you’ll find a few enticing “windows” into the corner art.

Also for ME9, I’m currently illustrating chapter 3 of the vampire comic series Allure of the Ancients: The Key to His Kingdom, written by Mark Farrugia.

Below are some in progress photos of the comic and a look at the “Vladslayer”, a weapon which will make it’s first appearance in the issue.

I’ll also be creating a full-page illustration to accompany one of the stories in the issue, so I’m going to be quite busy for the next few weeks! I’d like to thank Midnight Echo 9’s editor Geoff Brown for giving me this great opportunity!

Thanks for continuing to check out my blog and please keep eye out for updates as I share my art with you!
