I’ve been working on a series of covers for Clive Barker’s Next Testament. The story is about a god as beautiful as it is cruel. It is an excellent rendition of an incredibly superior being whose machinations we cannot even begin to understand. The visual called for a lot of color and although my work does not lack it, the heavy lines can often hold vibrance back. To avoid that from happening, I decided to take back the lines a bit by painting the whole thing in one layer over my original lines instead of my usual process of leaving the lines on top of the drawing.
The folks behind this project are incredibly talented: art-direction by Chris Rosa, script by Mark Miller, interiors by Haemi Jang, and, of course, Clive Barker himself! Forming part of this team has been inspiring but seriously intimidating.
