A hearty welcome back to Space & Time Magazine, in honor of whom I’m posting some of the interior work I did for them (haven’t submitted a cover piece yet).
The Ace of Shadows
This drawing just developed organically. No part of it was planned or sketched out—I just made it up as I went along. That is unusual, at least, for me. As for the woman in the drawing—perhaps she is my muse. My muse carries a dagger. How cool is that?
Michael Rowe is the author of the horror novels Enter, Night, Wild Fell, and October. I consider him to be a master of the Canadian Gothic, if there is such a creature. After reading his emotionally devastating Wild Fell, I felt inspired to do a drawing based on it, featuring the dark witch at story’s center, Rosa Blackmore. Michael asked to buy it, and a friendship was born.
Michael is also a journalist as well as the author of three non-fiction books. He is the winner of the Lambda Literary Award and was a finalist for the Shirley Jackson Award.

Actress Natalie Portman

After rereading DARK TOWER IV:WIZARD AND GLASS recently, I was moved enough to draw Susan Delgado.
