The Fantastic and Gothic Art of David Palumbo
  |  

Fantasy art and illustration has a beautiful and rich history. From the beautiful and titillating Margaret Brundage covers for Weird Tales through the poster, magazine, and album art of Frank Frazetta to the contemporary work of Marc Silvestri, artists and illustrators have brought color and shape to worlds of wonder. Be they scenes from the past, the future, or lands that never were, art plays an important role in fleshing out description and dialog.

Into this worthy tradition comes artist David Palumbo. Be it the historic flight of the first woman cosmonaut, Valentina Tereshkova, in June 1963; the return of the Cthulhu and the Old Ones to destroy a modern metropolis’ a Victorian image of Jack The Ripper, or creature art for the trading card game Legend Of The Cryptids, Palumbo brings a strong eye for detail, light, and color that immediately draws the eye. Parts of his paintings show detail with clarity, where others are intentionally vague. The figures often suggest a kinetic sense of impending motion that no photograph could properly convey. The faces are caught in expressions of terror, struggle, or bewilderment.

Kickstarter Spotlight: Ben Templesmith’s ‘THE SQUIDDER’
  |  @   |  

There are a lot of Kickstarter campaigns out there trying to get you to part with your hard-earned cash. But how many of them can say they are from Ben Templesmith and 44FLOOD? That’s what sets THE SQUIDDER apart from all the rest and that’s why we want to bring it to your attention, because these folks do their due diligence when it comes to putting together an awesome project.

If you love Lovecraft’s Cthulhu and want to see it take a science fiction-inspired leap forward, then this is the one for you. Described as “an original graphic novel about an old soldier from a forgotten war in a post-apocalyptic world that has left him behind,” this is the first creator-run book from Templesmith in five years. It’s something near and dear to his heart so I have no doubt it’s going to be excellent from start to finish. Not to mention the fact that this Kickstarter beat it’s goal so well that they upped the length from 108 pages to 144 pages (33% more)!

Check out the video below for more information direct from Ben Templesmith himself.
