No Longer In Search Of: A Cover Artist

I love the Internet.

Thanks to the wonders of email and online portfolios, I was able to shoot an email off early this morning to my publisher about a possible cover artist for my story collection. In that email was a bunch of links to this artist's work, giving the publisher a quick grasp of the artist's style without having to deal with the mail or battered samples.

And within three hours, I had a response from Sean Wallace at Prime Books: Jamie Bishop was our artist!

All made possible by the good ol' Internet, all occuring in less than a day's time.

Jamie has a kick-ass collection of art in his online portfolio (requires the Flash plug-in). My favorites are "Thanatopsis" and "Brighten to Incandescence." I also quite like "Happy Family" and "Pigeon Holes" (very reminiscent of Dave McKean). I also really like the color version of the "Interior Wash" of "The Curragh of Kildare" from Jason's chapbook (but I can't find that one in his 'folio). All of his stuff is cool and unique, and the guy seems to keep getting better. It's scary.

And as an added bonus, I get to work with Jamie on what the cover could look like. And yeah, I've got some ideas on that...

Now I just need to find the ending to my almost-done short story, and life would be outrageously good. Later!
