By 1989 I’d discovered the world of zines – comics, minicomics, personal journals, music zines, art zines, fiction zines and so much more. I thought it would be fun to do illustrations for the SF/Fantasy/Horror fiction zines but first I figured I needed a portfolio to show the editors what I could do. Rather than just create some random drawings or illustrate some of my favorite but possibly obscure short stories I decided to create illustrations for an author I was pretty sure anyone doing a fiction zine would have read – Stephen King.
I worked up a series of illustrations based on some of his short stories. I don’t remember how I chose the stories I decided to illustrate. They’re not all from a single collection.
This one is for “The Night Flyer”, a story about a very mobile vampire.
