Artwork – The Fairy King

without comments

Artwork - The Fairy KingThe Fairy King is the first in a series of shorter works to fill in the time-slot in between Warp’d Space releases. We did a variation on the cover design to distinguish them from the mainstream releases, incorporating a more traditional leather bound book appearance and the subtitle “Short Sharp Shocks”. I was very fortunate to find a wonderful archive of vintage photographs collected as a set on Flickr, and I was very spoiled for choice. The wings are taken from insects with glitter and sparkles added.

A lovely cover — I feel — for a very creepy play.
