Cover Art/Treatment by Francesco Francavilla

The great folks at SELF MADE HERO, the UK based publisher of so many great books, invited me to provide a cover for their latest comic anthology, Leah Moore and John Reppion’s adaptation of M.R. James short ghost stories.
Gothic era Ghost stories? Needless to say, they didn’t have to ask me twice ;)

Book is available for pre-order on Amazon UK here (not sure if they will ever be available on US Amazon)



The universe isn’t evil, John. It’s just indifferent. 

When are you dropping your first designs?

We at Self Made UK announce that we are dropping our first collection in September 2012. It will be called the ’Kala Collection’ and will incorporate the Edgeley, Hidden & Cloudy Design.

Where did you get your inspiration?

When designing the collection we first thought of what ‘Self Made’ stands for. Being 'Self Made’ means rising to the top from the bottom by yourself, and so we thought of mountains and climbing your way to the top. Therefore, when naming the collection we thought of a few names connected with mountains and such. We then came across Kala Patthar, which is a place in Nepal which is said to give the best view of the top of Mount Everest. Metaphorically speaking, seeing the top and rising to it. Therefore, we decided to call it the 'Kala Collection’.
