Alumni - Luke Spooner

Hi,
As I mentioned to Nicky back in January when I did a visiting lecture; I recently got offered the chance to illustrate a collection of stories called 'GUTTED: Beautiful Horror Stories.' What made this offer particularly important was that it was only the second collaboration with the publisher (Crystal Lake Publishing) and they were letting me illustrate for stories by the likes of Neil Gaiman (Coraline, Wolves In The Walls) and Clive Barker (Hellraiser, Sandman)!

It turns out - I got the job and was asked to illustrate for six of the stories. When I sent them the results of my work they were so happy with them that two of the editors stumped up the money to commission me for the remaining ten stories.

SO! With that in mind - I've attached the illustrations I produced for the entire anthology. I should probably say that they can't leave our correspondence unless I double check with the publisher beforehand but for now they serve as a pretty good example of what I'm up to in terms of black and white work.

Enjoy!
