I love it when I get paid to paint something that I probably would have done on my own anyway. This was definitely one of those cases. The book is by Merrie Haskell and comes out in May next year from HarperCollins, you can check it out here.
Sadly, my Halloween art this year was crippled by actual work I had to do, but I managed to carve a pumpkin and enter another contest. This was a Pyramid Head/Silent Hill related one at aintitcool.com, the winners get a stuffed Robbie the Rabbit which I don't expect anyone other than die hard Silent Hill fans, like myself, to know what that is. I was inspired by the classic Forbidden Planet poster(I just replaced Robby the Robot with PH and Altaira with Mary from SH2). Hopefully this appeals to their geeky sensibility; it certainly does mine.
