This remains to be my favorite illustration from Thief of Always! Your style is so incredibly interesting.

The simplicity and rough brush strokes work really well. Very engaging.

i LOVE your artwork! The Thief of Always is my favorite book of all time! i remember viewing your artwork in your book when i was a child and was just amazed! your style is awesome!
The Thief Of Always was very first Clive Barker book I read many moons ago, 1993 ( still have it and won't part with it ). It was actually popped in to the horror section of WHSmiths by mistake I think. This has got to be my favourite illustration in the book.

This has a very comic-book-like feel to it. I assume it's brushed ink or marker. Either way, it screams early nineties comic book work, which is the exact period that made me want to become an artist.

I love the ambivalent expression on his face. I don't find it menacing. I just find myself wondering what he's thinking, like I do when I'm looking at an owl or a wolf.
I remember this! I found this book in a bookstore while on vacation with my parents when I was 12 or so, and spent the whole vacation reading it, missing out on what I hear was a fantastic beach vacation. I didn't care. This book was magic, and the art inside only enhanced it. I loved this book!

my dad read this book to me when i was little,
it is one of my first memories of wanting to create something,
it brought out worlds inside of me,
these illustrations (and others of yours) cover my walls and i will never forget them,
thank you.

I had the same experience with this book, I believe it was a huge step in my becoming an artist :)
