HASTY FOR THE DARK - NEW COVER ARTWORK BY SAMUEL ARAYA
I've also done some fine-tuning of the Ritual Limited backlist, by commissioning Sam Araya to produce new artwork for my second collection, Hasty for the Dark. It's the same book but clad in different clothing, and aimed to connect the book with the Ritual Limited aesthetic and style, that has since been developed by Sam. I always liked the original artwork, produced by my brother back in 2017, but parts of the cover artwork, in some editions, were crushed to black. We couldn't get the backgrounds, or paper stock, black enough to pop the finer parts of the illustration. Cover design is science, art and magic. Anyway, I can reveal the striking new artwork here, inspired by the collection's maritime horror story, 'Hippocampus'.
Signed copies of the new edition will be available through the webstore soon.
