I’m sharing a personal project today – and some very exciting news 🙂
Working with my friend, author Sean Walter, we’re putting together a gorgeous fully illustrated anthology of eerie stories. Not content with that, we’re taking it on tour next spring with a fully immersive show including live readings, the original artwork, animations, 3d versions of the artwork for the blind and partially sighted, sign language interpreter and a rock’n’roll evening party at each venue.
We have stories and illustrations complete already, like the great and terrible Catmonkey above and the Barghest below, created for ‘hunted’.
This is where we need a little help – we are running a Kickstarter (already 40% funded on day two, woohoo!) to top up our production costs, offering pre order signed copies, exclusive prints and more. More details of the project on Tales in Sombre Tones.
Karen is a full time artist living in Whitby (perfect location for a horror fan). Her own monsters have taken over to the point where they actually have their own closet space and so she takes refuge in books and films, some of which she’d like to share with you.
