Who Done It? Cover Fascination...























WHO DONE IT?

Since the HL announced its new horror anthology, The Horror Library, Volume 1, there have been A LOT of comments about the amazing cover art. This incredible piece of work is the first thing bringing attention to the anthology so I thought it was high time to introduce you to the talented artists who created the HL anthology's cover art.

GROUNDFROST (from their MySpace bio):

"Groundfrost Illustration and Design is the combination of the artistic talents of Antti Isosomppi (anatheme) and Shelley Bergen (nebu). Long time friends on opposite sides of the planet, they share the same love of art and its creation. Both bring a great deal of dedication, talent and experience to Groundfrost. Since its launch in October 2004 they have been working almost non-stop on commissioned projects. Some of their clients to date include The Killers, The Higher, Kayne West, God Forbid, Black Eyed Peas, Symbiontic and Telos Publishing. Groundfrost specializes in cd cover art and inserts, posters, t-shirt designs and also offer full website solutions for your band. Groundfrost will take your band's visual style to a new level. " --Groundfrost

The original piece of artwork that inspired the cover for The Horror Library, Volume 1, is Mouthfull of Sorrow which, seen to the right, can be viewed in a larger format at The Horror Library Gallery page. The image is near the bottom of the Gallery page - just click on it for a better view. In addition to Groundfrost's fine work, in the gallery you'll find a smorgasbord of amazing dark art by many fine artists from around the world. Be sure to feast your eyes on these images and then have a taste of some free fiction in the Fresh Meat section and The Vault.

You'll even find a sampling of free Friel fiction on the shelves of The Horror Library.

You can visit Groundfrost at MySpace and see more of their amazing work at Groundfrost.com.

Wickedly Yours,

Boss and Lisa - Thank you SO much for visiting and commenting. I'm so glad you're enjoying the cover. I haven't gotten my contributer's copy yet, but a friend of mine got theirs today, and they said it's even more amazing in person. And the best part is that it's filled with great stories, as well.

I hope all is well with you.

Best,
Fran

This cover looks like the way I sometimes felt when I worked 10 to 12 hours a day!
Keep up the good work
