I was first introduced to your work years ago when I read the Hellbound Heart. I've adored your artistic vision, and concepts ever since. I've spent a good amount of time looking for legitimate images your original concept illustrations for the Cenobites, and here they were all along! I'm greatly looking forward to delving through your art, and seeing your artistic process at work. ^^
I remember being introduced to this now iconic character and the Hell Raiser movies he was in when I was a teen. I was both horrified and loved the stories. The work always makes me think of Divinyls a fine line between pleasure and pain (1985).
I love Pinhead. So creepy due to him being so good at what he does and being so hard to read, yet I'm still convinced that there's a core of non-evil in there, somewhere. Thank you for creating and sharing him.

I love Doug's portrayal of Pinhead, I really do. It's iconic, legendary, powerful and provoking....but there is something inherently glorious about seeing the lead cenobite put to various media by your hand, from your brain, the way you conceived it. Very special indeed. Thank you for sharing your many visions with us, Mr. Barker.
