    I appreciate the sale, it's all boxed up and will be in the mail this afternoon.

    I'm taking my wife and kids to Chicago for a mini vacation before school starts back up, so I'm looking to make some nice spending cash.
    Received this several days ago but finally had the time to open it today. Fantastic addition to my collection. Thanks for keeping it in such good shape and packing it so well for shipment!

    I have always been open to selling my illustration work. People usually contact me directly. If there is a particular one from an old CD magazine , or from a particular book, I can tell you if I still have it. If I do, single full page drawings have never been more than $50. If there is any interest, please contact me directly: kminnion@gmail.com. The drawings aren't doing anyone any good stored in the boxes!

    And yes, I've done a few things for Jack's work. He already owns the ink drawing I did for his CD chapbook "Honor System", but one of the last things I did for CD magazine was designing, laying out and illustrating a two page spread of a short-short of his called "Gorilla In My Room," and I still have both of those drawings.

    Also (please forgive the plug) Amazon has my 100-page full-color art book "DARK WORK" in both hardcover and a more affordable large format paperback formats. That image to the left is the cover, actually. DARK WORK has all of my favorite illustrations in it, culled from the period 1993 through till when I retired. The "Gorilla" illustration spread and the "Honor System" chap cover are in there, as a matter of fact.

    Did you do any more illustrations for other Jack Ketchum stories?

    Keith, if you ever clean house and put them up for sale, I hope you'll give us all here a heads-up...

    No, sorry. I stopped doing genre illustration work a few years ago (well, except for a little bit for my White Noise Press imprint).
    I own the original pencil drawing you did for Jack Ketchum's story "The Box", and it is an amazing piece of work, in my opinion.

These days I am concentrating on traditional oil painting and watercolor painting - landscapes, roofscapes, still-lifes - that sort of thing. Thanks for your interest, though.

    I would love to see that. Do have any prints of your work available? I'm always looking for neat Halloween artwork and I'm lots of other folks here are as well.

    The thing is, at that time I didn't yet have the equipment to create digital art files, so I had the painting photographed professionally and sent as a 3x5" transparency. The painting itself was given to a former friend to help decorate her new B&B, and that was the last I saw of it. One of those lost images, I guess. As I recall, it was of a four-square style house decked out for Halloween night which, when you looked at it, became clearly not a house, but a huge, subtly evil jack-o-lantern.

    Hi Keith, pretty sure the portfolio went out with the Lettered. While the AE came with a framed original from Chadbourne.

    Couldn't tell you on the portfolio. I wish we even still had a single copy of the AE for that one though. Some of those early AE's we did there where no extra books or cases and we don't have office copies even for reference.

    Thanks for posting the pics… I've never seen that one, either, so it was very cool to see.
