June 2014 – I thought I would update this particular blog post that I wrote back in January 2013. You see the fabulous news is that the story “The Snack” from Betty Dravis is being made into a movie! How awesome is that!?!?! Of course I didn’t realise that updating a blog would do nothing, so I am reposting it here. 🙂
Betty contacted me a little while back asking if I could change a few things on the art for that story which mostly consisted of turning the little girl from brunette to blonde. I was more than happy to do so, although as I’d only kept a small copy of each of the art works, it was a little tricky! Still, we got there in the end.
Do feel free to check out the Facebook page for the movie – if you’re into horror and paranormal, then this is going to be well worth the wait! You can also find the book on Amazon via the links in the original blog below.
Congratulations to Betty!!!!!!!!!!
January 2013 – original blog
Many months ago the fabulous author and friend of mine, Betty Dravis, asked me if I would like to do some art work for the upcoming “Six Pack of Fear” – a collection of six short stories written by herself and Barbara Watkins. Well the wait is over and you will find it here – Six Pack of Fear – Amazon I don’t really need to explain what the stories are about, right? I mean just look at the cover and think of the word FEAR and that sums it up quite nicely. Mills and Boon this is not!
The brief for the art was simple – here are the titles and a quick synopsis of each story, don’t spend too much time on each piece, (Betty knows how long I spend on my work….hehehe), and see what you come up with.
I had never produced work for a Kindle book before, so she sent me samples of the work done in their previous book “Six Pack of Blood” and I went from there.
I had a lot of fun doing it, and with Betty checking each one to see how it would look on her Kindle, making suggestions about content (after all the Author knows how the story should be portrayed, right!), we finally got them all done and I simply sat back waiting…..
I can share two of them here with you as these have already been posted, however the other four will be found in the book itself. The cover art work was done by Matt and Danielle Drake who also produced the cover and artwork for Six Pack of Blood. (Correct me if I am wrong Betty!!)
Here we have “Saving the GPS Lady”, and “The Devil House”. If you have ever seen any of my paintings, you will also notice that above the fire place in the Devil house pic is my version of a Bouguereau. Bet he never thought his work would end up there!
So, if you are a horror/paranormal fan, go check out Betty and Barbara’s latest offering (the link is at the beginning of this blog). It already has rave reviews and an award from Zodiac Entertainment!
Congratulations to Betty and Barbara, and thank you for allowing me to be part of Six Pack of Fear!
