City of Saints, Leviathan 3, and More: Art in the House

It seemed an appropriate time to talk about art in a more personal way, so here’s some of ours, along with a couple of “related” pieces. We have a lot more, but no place to put it, really…

Here’s Scott Eagle’s original cover art for City of Saints. An amazing piece of work that will change in color gradually as it ages…

Myrtle Vondamitz III’s art, including her cover for the limited of Veniss Underground…

The lovely poster our Clarion students gave us in 2007…

A hilarious series of photos The Church sent us when they visited Tallahassee, ironically while we were traveling overseas. Shows them slowly encountering my books and pretending to be horrified…

Dawn Andrews’ original cover art for Leviathan 3…

A piece we bought in Victoria, B.C., from an artist whose name I forget…

Could not resist this piece by an artist better known for his street art…

An Alan M. Clark piece we were particularly fond of…

A piece by a local artist that I liked for its kind of pseudo-Byzantine feel…

Harry Fassl’s original artwork for the Ministry of Whimsy edition of Jeffrey Thomas’ Punktown. Very sorry to hear that Harry passed away recently…

Art by Alan M. Clark created for “Dradin, In Love,” which might have been the cover for City of Saints and Madmen if a prior edition hadn’t fallen through…

    Boy, that Scott Eagle painting really makes an impact on the wall. It makes for great cover art, but I think it’s even better in its original form.

    Maybe it’s because I didn’t pay much attention to it at first, but when I first received my limited edition of Veniss Underground, the cover seemed murky and indistinct. Over time, as I read the book, I sometimes looked again at the cover, and I swear the detail came through more enhanced every time I looked at it. I started seeing things that I missed before.

    I really like that last one. It’s probably the closest painting (or visual art piece) to the mental pictures of Ambergris you’re novels have given me.
