Not exactly forever ago, I wrote a novella.
I called it The Hecatomb. To support it, I decided to paint my own cover art. I’d done cover art before, but usually only for smaller, cleaner, non-fiction books.
Here it is:
It’s ok…I guess. I’ve never truly been satisfied with it. It lacked the sharpness I desired. I left it alone for a while, but always felt the itch to change it.
And so recently, I did…
Here’s the new Hecatomb painting, sharper, more vivid, and greener than its predecessor:
Much more satisfying, at least to me.
Recently, I formatted this piece into The Hecatomb’s new cover art.
The original (without lettering) is 16″ x 20″. Prints are available here.
Meanwhile, if you like this style, you’ll probably like these.
See you soon with more dark, ethereal art.
