Summer, new subscribers, new book sample and Kindle Unlimited

Summer can be that time of the year where dark souls like me or you can feel some cognitive dissonance when we have to go out in the sun. We love the shadows, cold and darkness, so getting in contact with the warmth, the light and the sun heat of the Summer is that deliciously unpleasant pleasantry! 😉

What have you been doing?

I have been working on a new art portfolio (since that’s what I live of as illustrator/painter), I have also been writing/editing and finalizing As Black As Ice – the final part of As Cold As Thorns. I have been dreaming about new stories, which I hope to start writing very soon.

Cover reveal: As Black As Ice

Dear visitors of this website, it has been a while since I did a blogpost, that’s because, besides much work, I have traveled to France and Portugal, to attend two Computer Graphics events with focus on Concept Art/VFX/Animation and 3Dart, I worked and studied at these events – which were a great place to be since I live out of digital illustration/concept art.

Now, onto Gothic Books… Today I am revealing to you the cover of ‘AS Black As Ice’ – the final part of ‘As Cold As Thorns’ novel. I painted it myself and hope you enjoy it 🙂


Most likely this novel will be released during Autumn this year, so stay tuned!

Thank you for your support & Happy Holidays!

So how is your December rush going? Do you have special plans for the holiday season? How do you celebrate Christmas and New Year?

For me, November and December have been very busy! As most of you  know, I write, edit and publish on my free time, which means I have a day job to help paying the bills. What do I do for a living? I am a professional illustrator and graphic designer, and I have been doing mostly Fantasy book covers for indie authors and publishing houses for the past 6 years (and before that, I did graphic design for different forms of advertisement in the heavy metal/alternative music niche). And for the past one and a half year I have also worked as art teacher at the local school.
