After Death... A New Illustrated Anthology

It's been a while - I've been busy working on illustrations for "After Death..." an anthology edited by Eric Guignard and published by Dark Moon Books and due out in Spring of 2013! 

I wanted to put a few images here to tease you a bit. It's going to be freaking awesome! Authors from all over the globe have contributed stories to this book about what could possibly happen after death! The editor, Eric writes "Death. Who has not considered their own mortality and wondered at what awaits, once our frail human shell expires? What occurs after the heart stops beating, after the last breath is drawn, after life as we know it terminates?

Each person has their own beliefs, whether based on science, a traditional religion, or perhaps dark, personal experimentation. Do we transcend to another dimension or celestial world? Does our spirit remain while the body rots? Are we given another opportunity to do it all over again? Can we die again in the afterlife? Do we find ways to cheat death and maintain a semblance of living after the mortician declares, D.O.A.? Do we all just end up in a cosmic purée, drunk by an Elvis Presley overlord?"

Here's the illustration for ""With Max Barry in the Nearer Precincts"
