Are there any artists that CD isn't working with that you would like to see us start to work with? We are looking for some suggestions as to who the collectors would like to see artwork by in future Limited Editions. Thanks!

We're looking at a lot of different artists, some new and some established, and we would love your input on who we might be missing. Fire away!

I'm not sure if they are the type illustrators you are looking for but some artists who I've seen do great horror and who I would love to see in a future release include -

Alex Maleev
Attila Futaki
Gary Gianni
Frank Quietly
Bernie Wrightson

Ok, I will stop. But I can do more :)

Oscar Senn (Aka Oscar Steven Senn). He isn't well known, but he should be. He's talented and can really paint (and draw). He did a haunting foreign edition of a Steven King book (The Talisman), and he has paintings in galleries all over the US. His most recent work (The Hard Time Saints series of paintings) is amazing. Will he work for CD though? Well, he has said he'll listen if they talk to him. So go contact him and see if he will. Please! I'd love to see his talent on CD's covers.

Artists is somehting I know nothing about. I do like Potter, Miller and Chadbourne (he's an artist, correct?), but you've already worked with those guys. But if it was up to me which it isn't, I'd choose Potter or Miller for everything.

I'd like some more Tomislav Tikulin. I thought his Passage cover was great!

Still on the fence about getting the art piece... I just don't have anywhere to display it.

Other than that, I don't know many artists. Generally I really like all the art in the CD editions, so I'm ok with anything! Although some fresh blood is always nice!

Stephen Bissette and/or John Totleben. Their work together on Swamp Thing was some of the most beautiful, imaginative, and horrific art ever seen in comics.

Here's a name for you guys but I doubt he'd do it since he's such a big shot himself: Clive Barker. What do ya think??

I've seen the image(s) and while I'm pretty openminded I have to wholeheartedly agree with this statement...More Clive and less little Clive would be great.

Once again, I'm not sure what " Little Clive" means? Who the hell is Little Clive?? Despite what Clive shows up, I still think it'd be great if he'd illustrated a King limited.

For the right project, I think that Danish artist John Kenn Mortensen could really make some great illustartions. If there was a Signature Series tale that had an old school children's-story-gone-horribly-wrong feel to it, John Kenn Mortensen would be my illustrator of choice. Did you SEE his illustrations for "Deadfall Hotel" (by Steve Rasnic Tem)? YOWZA!

I've met big Clive (I'm sure the little one was around somewhere..), and think he's a really nice guy, but I do NOT like his illustrations. A collaboration a la King/Straub would be awesome, though.

You mean King and Straub can draw or am I missing something? I still say Clive Barker (Big Clive).
Hey Dan or Brian, you think you can pull that off? Also, any Barker books in the works??

Yep I was looking at these yesterday (and thinking about ordering the book) and they are fantastic. Great choice.

LOL, now don't make me start bragging!!
This is off the subject but since everyone keeps bringing up my username....it wasn't true that I first thought of that for my ebay username. Back in 1965 when my mom was going through all kinds of trouble then she found out she was pregnant with yours truly, she told me years later she shouted "Oh, the enormity of it all!!" And that's what I was named. When I was 4, she officially changed it to "Scott". But since that was my birthname, I now use that as my username on everything. That's a true story too.
But there's nothing wrong with Barker frik. I can't recall any of his artwork at the moment lol, but I heard he's pretty good, but like I said, he's too big of a big shot to do something like that for another author.

I guess there's nothing wrong with Barker's art; it's just not my style.
I bet, though,if asked, he'd be more than willing to illustrate King.

I don't know much about the subject, but I am willing to guess that Barker is probably to expensive for most of our projects. I know we've looked at some comic book artists before, and they end up being too expensive as well.

LOL well if that's Barker's artwork, then I actually would mind seeing it in a King book or any other book for that matter.
I hope he's done better drawings than that. It looks like something a kindergartner would come up with.

Yeah, well, from what frik posted I think CD should just save their money. I think I still like Glenn Cadbourne, Miller and Potter the best, even though none of them are "New".

WTF ????? Contextually, Barker is right up there, IMHO (having said that, true story, I failed colouring in between the lines in 3rd class - about age 6 - and got sent back to kindergarten to learn from the experts - that, and watching Neil Armstrong land on the moon - are the most vivid memories I have of my formative schooling years - so what do I know about art, except its mostly an F short of one of my favourite hobbies in my halcyon daze :p).

Come on man. You can't honestly say what frik posted can compare to a Chadbourne or Miller? It's God awful. Certainlly he must of done other work that look likes an adult's work.
But you saw ol' Neil land on the moon??? I was about to turn 3 years old in July (Aug. 4th is my actually birthday) of 1969 and even I remember watching it on my grandma's and grandpa's old RCA TV.

I don't. It's a style I can't relate to at all.

11-03-2011, 06:41 PM
Well, most of that art is from his Abarat series; I personally like it, but I can't see it illustrating anything other than his young adult novels. Art must compliment the words of an author, and I can't really think of a King work that Barker's art would go with.

Barker art aside, it's horses for courses really (you either love, like it, hate it, loathe it - or are ambivalent towards it). But, yep, remember the moon landing very well, I was 7, sitting in a country classroom on linoleum in the middle of winter for seven straight hours - fun times :p
