I'm the art director of a new online magazine, Dark Valentine, dedicated to dark fiction. Our premiere issue has launched today, and can be downloaded free here.
In the words of our publisher, "If summer is a little too bright and shiny for you, then we invite you to take a walk on the dark side with 120 harrowing pages of horror, fantasy, noir, and more." I had the chance to work with a lot of really talented artists, like , , , , , and , just to name a few. The cover, which I illustrated, is Tanit, the Carthaginian moon goddess-- she's something of our patron saint over at the magazine. It was inspired by Stephanie Dray's short story "The Threshing Floor."
We also have stories from Christine Pope, Frank Duffy, Chad Rohrbacher, and Scott Laurange. There's flash fiction from Cormac Brown, Sandra Seamans, Carol Kilgore, and Blue Jackson, as well as paranormal noir from Agatha-nominated novelist Elizabeth Zelvin and Paul D. Brazill's innovative twist on an old monster.
I hope you all enjoy!
