Weekend links 45

sa4.jpg

That essential journal of esoteric culture, Strange Attractor, announced a fourth number this week sporting a psychedelic cover which may be the work of Julian House (no credit is given on the SA site). As to the contents: From Haiti and Hong Kong to the fourth dimension and beyond: discover the secrets of madness in […]

Through the Psychedelic Looking-Glass: the 2011 calendar

ttlg01.jpg

Looking-Glass House. So here it is at last, this year’s much-delayed calendar design, the sequel to last year’s well-received Psychedelic Wonderland. I’ll get the business stuff out of the way first: would-be purchasers should go to the CafePress shop here while for a better preview of all the artwork look here. Update: This calendar is […]

Jabberwocky

jabberwock.jpg

The Jabberwock (2010). ’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe; All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe. “Beware the Jabberwock, my son! The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun The frumious Bandersnatch!” He took his vorpal sword in hand: […]

More Steampunk and the Crawling Chaos

steampunk1.jpg

Yes, it’s these again, and no, I’m not posting them because it Christmas (although you probably don’t believe that). This is the first opportunity I’ve had to add the designs to CafePress after letting them sit for a while seeing as they’re all still available on Modofly’s book range. I’ve had queries recently for the […]

Return to Wonderland

psych_poster.jpg

As the festive season shambles into view I’ve reworked my psychedelic interpretation of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland from calendar to poster format for those who might prefer the latter. There are two poster sizes, the standard CafePress large and small, and the calendar is still on sale, of course. By coincidence, the dreadfully-named Syfy channel […]

Finch posters

finch.jpg

I won’t say this is by popular demand but after persistent requests for posters of my cover art for Jeff VanderMeer’s latest novel, Finch, I’ve opened a new CafePress shop selling exactly that. The largest of these is 58.38cm x 82.55 (22.984″ x 32.5″) which should be big enough for most appetites. There’s also a […]

Psychedelic Wonderland: the 2010 calendar

pw00.jpg

So I had a bright idea at the end of September… Instead of rehashing old work for a CafePress calendar design, I thought I’d try something new. I hadn’t done any artwork for myself all year, everything I’d been working on was a commission of some sort. In addition to that, I’d spent a large […]

New Modofly books

steampunk.jpg

Steampunk: Life in Our New Century! I’m behind on work updates again. Still being very productive on a range of different fronts—mostly book and CD design as usual—but the workload means that site updates tend to suffer. Anyway… This new Steampunk illustration was a quick piece done at the weekend to accompany an article Jeff […]

Nyarlathotep: the Crawling Chaos

nyarlathotep.jpg

Unveiling another new piece of work, this is a T-shirt design for metal band Cyaegha whose Steps of Descent album I illustrated and designed last year. They asked for something based on HP Lovecraft’s god Nyarlathotep so I thought I’d take the opportunity to rework from scratch the version of this I created in 1999 […]

January sale!

calendars.jpg

Yes, it’s that word again… As is customary here, this year’s calendars have been reduced in price to $17.99, a dollar above the CafePress base cost. The Heaven and Hell calendar has sold surprisingly well so I’ll be keeping the shop active for the next couple of months. My thanks to everyone who bought one […]

New things for December

lord_horror.jpg

Lord Horror (1997). Time for an end of year news round up. • As mentioned earlier, issue 11 of US horror magazine Penny Blood features a look at Savoy Books and David Britton’s Lord Horror mythos. The magazine is now on sale and includes comments from Savoy’s Michael Butterworth and myself. • I was interviewed […]

Heaven and Hell Calendar

hhcalendar_cover.jpg

It was only a week ago I announced a new calendar for 2009 and now here’s an additional CafePress creation which manages to offer more than another collection of Lovecraft illustrations. This is a sampling of my work from the past few years gathered under the vague rubric of Heaven and Hell. A couple of […]

Coulthart Calendar 2009

calendar1.jpg

I’ve been a bit late with the new calendar this year but it’s finally available at CafePress. I’ve also been somewhat remiss in reusing last year’s pages rather than uploading new ones. Preparing 12 pages of art takes time even if you’re using old images—they have to be the right dimensions, after all—and I’ve been […]

Picasso-esque

picasso1.jpg

Jessica Helfand at Design Observer draws attention to Mr Picassohead, a site which allows you to create your own Picasso-style portraits. The interface doesn’t have as much choice of elements as the Simpsonizer did but messing around with it this afternoon yielded a passable rendering of David Britton’s Lord Horror. This idling reminded me that […]

New things for October

big_pic.jpg

“Mirage in time—image of long-vanish’d pre-human city.” A couple pieces of news to catch up with here, both Lovecraft-related which is very apt for the month of Halloween. The first is the work I gave a teaser view of in August, a commission for Maison d’Ailleurs, the Museum of Science Fiction, Utopia and Extraordinary Journeys […]

Coulthart Calendar 2008

2008calendar.jpg

Mid-September is when new calendars are unveiled so here’s my addition to the calendrical onslaught. This year’s edition is an improved version (with tinted page art and a unique cover design) of the Lovecraft-themed calendar I produced last year, and of the three 2007 designs was easily the most popular. The pictures are those from […]

The recurrent pose 5

A specific homage to Flandrin’s painting this time by Phuzzy0 at deviantART. Earlier variations are linked below. My own Fallen Angel variations are now available as signed prints as well as CafePress products. Elsewhere on { feuilleton } • The recurrent pose archive

New things for July

motorway_city_sm.jpg

Motorway City by Hawkwind, Flicknife Records single (1983). This month’s issue of Record Collector magazine has a feature about Hawkwind which featured my Motorway City sleeve among its illustrations. It was odd seeing this again, being a single it doesn’t turn up so often and it has the distinction of being one of the oldest […]

Calendar sale

Let’s start the new year with some traditional commercialism. My CafePress calendars are now reduced in price to $17.99 which means I make all of $1 on each sale. Still not much of a bargain for purchasers but that’s the way it goes with all CafePress products, their own starting price is always high. I’ll […]

New things for September

cafepress_sept.jpg

top: The Highbury Working, The Lucid View. bottom: Manchester District Music Archive design, The Major Arcana. As mentioned last month, I’ve updated and expanded all my CafePress shops which means you can now (should you wish) buy T-shirts, posters, mousepads and other goods from selected artwork. Look for links on the relevant artwork pages. In […]
