Late last year Jan, Misha and I went to Keele Hall where two distinguished writers read out their stories — hi there A Leslie and R Shearman. A very enjoyable time. Spooky, too, as it should be. After, as we were getting back in the car, I noticed that the eerily lit Hall would make a perfect eerie picture. Here it is — edited a bit to double the atmosphere.
In a flash: a tentacled creature from the depths. Maybe I should have a go at producing some more gifs.
I have uploaded a handful of new “zapped” images to my Flickr gallery. As usual, most of these are available to use as book covers, etc. Just drop me a message if you are interested. I am able to do slight edits on the images if necessary (eg hue, size, etc).
Hope you all have a suitably spooky Hallowe’en today. The image above is of a pumpkin carved by my own fair hands from this year’s crop. To be honest, we only managed two of the beggars. Not sure of the variety, but not the usual type of pumpkin found at Tesco or Morrisons.
The British Fantasy Society used one of my pictures for a recent issue of the BFS Journal. The journal’s editor has selected another of my images for a future edition, I’m happy to say. I’ll post the cover here when it appears.
I’ve uploaded more artwork to my Flickr account. Most of the images here are available for book covers, etc. Just contact me for details.
Here’s a Grey I met the other day. Friendly chap. Like Paul, he wasn’t into anal probing, either.
