The painting I did for the cover of Jack Bantry's novel was just released. This would be my 7th book cover that was published, I did a few more than never saw the light of day.
Not Dead by DanHenk

In other news, I am 225 pages into my third book. It's a sequel to the first, but includes some of the characters from the second. I'm almost finished with the cover, and have started the first of at least 9 interior illustrations.

The Growling
Book cover I did for Jacky Bantry of Splatterpunk Zine fame's new book "The Growling". Oil on board, 12" by 16".

Working on my third book, and it's a little more than half written. It's a sequel to my first book, but includes some of the characters from my second. I haven't even started the interior illustrations, but the cover painting is about 70% done, and it's tentatively titled "The End Of The World". I took a little different approach in this one. The chapters that focus on the main character and are seen through his eyes are in first person like my initial novel. That is only about half of the book however, with events and characters giving a whole new perspective on the apocalyptic setting. All of those chapters are in third person, with a narrator expanding on the scene. I've found this dichotomy to be a real best of both worlds scenario, and it has allowed me to expand the whole universe I am creating. I hope everyone enjoys, and I'll keep the release updated. It will be tentatively released next year by Permuted Press.

Life is a rocky road. I've had incredible highs, including being featured in books, magazines, and touring all around the world. I've had incredible lows. The death of my wife. Brain Cancer. Totaling 3 motorcycles and two cars. A knife fight with a crackhead that almost severed my thumb. But ultimately, life is what you make of it. I'm currently writing horror short stories, I put out my first novel "The Black Seas Of Infinity" in 2011 via Anarchy Books, to be followed by my second book "Down Highways In The Dark...By Demons Driven" courtesy of Damnation Books sometime this year. Permuted Press picked up my debut novel for a reissue as well, featuring a new cover, a slight edit, and a range of available versions that include hardcover, softcover, and audiobook. I do a regular comic for Tattoo Artist Magazine, illustrations for TTA Press, This Is Horror, and Splatterpunk. Check out my stuff, you might not hate it. www.danhenk.com or the latest updates on instagram! instagram.com/danhenk

Wow, your brushwork is amazing.  Some of the best ink work I've seen here.  I absolutely love it.  Expect a lot of faves over the next few days as I go through your gallery.
