Don't really want to toot my own horn too loudly, but I am pleased to announce that the book cover I worked on in collaboration with my brother Devon Dorrity, the photographer Jason Morrison, and the model Shelbilee Lee got into Spectrum Fantastic Art's annual release, Spectrum 21. I have been following Spectrum for years and have always wanted to have my art listed besides some of the best artists in sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and otherwise uncategorizable works.
This project was a lot of fun to work on with my brother, Devon, throughout the year. Devon has a very wonderful imagination and can envision projects down to precise details, enabling him to direct other artists in very particular ways to see his vision come to life. Because he is also an artist himself, he isn't afraid to jump into a project and get his own hands messy with the art. He setup and directed the photo shoot with the model, arranged the original composition and layout of the book before I started on the illustration, and he blended my finished illustration into the cover design. He came up with the idea and directed the design for this award-winning cover for the book "
Awakening - Book One of the Geis".
The book is available for download for the Kindle and iOS devices. You can also pick up a physical copy of the book on Amazon.
I will post the finished version of the cover shortly.
I love Spectrum because the artwork that they assemble is right up the alley of the artwork I enjoy creating. My favorite artist of all-time, Frank Frazetta, has had many of his works on display in Spectrum. Spectrum's mission is "To promote the fantastic arts and provide an annual showcase for contemporary artists." To find out more about Spectrum, please visit this link:
I'm excited to have a piece in Spectrum 21 and hope to be able to have a few pieces of work in Spectrum 22.
