“A Terror” … well not really but a fun e-story project for TOR Books. Creative Director, Irene Gallo and I were back and forth on the concept: sad concept or more “horror show”.

Here’s the link to the short story: “A Terror” by Jeffery Ford.

The finished painting is pencil on board, blocked in with acrylic washes, and gradual building of the form with hatching, scumbling and scratching.

First the rough sketches:
