65. Winds of Khalakovo

Here is a cover I painted not too long ago for Bradley Beaulieu, art directed by Dave Palumbo of Nightshade Books. I'll also be doing an interview soon on Brad's speculative fiction podcast 'Speculate', which I'll link to when it goes up. Its been really exciting to be a part of the process of getting Brad's vision into the hands of readers. When you are dealing directly creator to creator and supporting a personal vision, not an amalgam of a large team, it is a really special kind of reward when they dig the art and feel it has contributed to their story in some way. Check out Brad's website here - its got some great content, interviews, insight into his process and info about the series.

Hope you like the painting :)

Okay, so that was two words, but certainly the wow-ness of this piece deserve more than a simple monosyllable...

Wow, that is a lot of sails. Great value control and composition. Really nice, guess that's why you get the big bucks eh?

Thanks guys.
For the record, the majority of my income still comes from slowly auctioning off my lesser used organs and body parts. If anyone is in the market for a lower intestine in 'somewhat used' condition, my rent is due right around the corner...
