#Art of Fantasy 117: Noah Bradley

I not sure whether my mood influenced my choice of artist for this week. I suspect it may be a contributing factor. The last two weeks have been rough. Really rough. And then two days ago I learned Babylon's Song has been shortlisted for New Zealand's Sir Julius Vogel Award. I'm an outsider, a relative … Continue reading #Art of Fantasy 117: Noah Bradley

#Art of Fantasy 113: Bogdan Rezunenko

Bogdan Rezunenko lives in Saint-Petersburg, Russia and is a freelancer. At some stage, he worked as an artist for Pathfinder. That is it. No other information exist that I can find. So, we know Bogdan is a freelance artist. We don't know what informs his creativity or what inspires him. His work is awesome, though, and … Continue reading #Art of Fantasy 113: Bogdan Rezunenko

National Woelf Dietrich Week in Luvmbookistein

Given that the good people of Luvmbookistein celebrate "National Woelf Dietrich Week" this week, I thought I'd share an oldie with you. It's been a while since I mentioned The Seals of Abgal. I've updated it and reformatted everything and I made it look better than before. One has to. Technology keeps improving the way … Continue reading National Woelf Dietrich Week in Luvmbookistein

#Art of Fantasy 103: Arash Radkia

This week I bring you illustrations and paintings that are unique and awesome, but then, I do that every week. Arash Radkia is a freelance concept artist and illustrator and works out of Prague. Although finding examples of his work online was not a problem, finding more information about the man turned out far more of a challenge. … Continue reading #Art of Fantasy 103: Arash Radkia

#Art of Fantasy 101: Kirill Novoseltsev

We go dark this week with the artist, Kirill Novoseltsev. Kirill lives in St. Petersburg, Russia, and his art is different and strange. Unfortunately, I don't know much about him and my Russian is non-existent. I can tell you that I love his style and tone. You have dark fantastical elements here mixed with a classical approach. … Continue reading #Art of Fantasy 101: Kirill Novoseltsev

Skelos – The Journal of Weird Fiction and Dark Fantasy

A few months ago, I supported a Kickstarter campaign for the first issue of Skelos: The Journal of Weird Fiction and Dark Fantasy. The campaign was a massive success, receiving $19,318 from 499 backers after setting a modest goal of only $2,000. Massive success is indeed accurate, but then, it shouldn't come as a surprise. Skelos … Continue reading Skelos – The Journal of Weird Fiction and Dark Fantasy

#Art of Fantasy 74: Dariusz Zawadzki

It would probably have been more correct if I called this post "Art of Surrealism." However, if you consider the themes and tone of the paintings below, they still possess elements of fantasy, albeit dark and gloomy ones. Dariusz Zawadzki is a self-taught artist and one of the more popular painters of contemporary fantasy and … Continue reading #Art of Fantasy 74: Dariusz Zawadzki
