Welcome to the artwork section of issue #14 — our featured artist is Galen Dara, who also drew the cover for this issue. I am very fortunate to have Galen on the Lovecraft eZine artist team; she is SO talented, and there’s something really haunting about her work. In fact, I’ve commisioned her for several private projects, including illustrating my poem, The Town of Autumn.
Galen Dara likes to sit in the dark with her sketchbook, but sometimes she emerges to illustrate for books and magazines, dabble in comics, and hatch wild collaborations with friends and associates. She got her first real emersion to Lovecraftian Mythos doing artwork for Cthulhurotica, published by Dagan Books.
Galen has also done art for Edge Publishing, Apex, Scapezine, Tales to Terrify, Peculiar Pages, and Sunstone. She is the house illustrator for Lightspeed Magazine, is on the staff of BookLifeNow, blogs for the Inkpunks, and writes the Art Nerd column at the Functional Nerds. Last year Galen worked with writer John Nakamura Remy to create the comic Traitors and Tyrants for Monsters and Mormons. Currently, Galen is working on the art for Dark Depths, Wendy N. Wagner’s debut novel. (You can get a taste of Wendy in this issue with God Serum.)
When Galen is not working on a project you can find her on the edge of the Sonoran Desert, climbing mountains or hanging out with a loving assortment of human and animal companions. Follow her on twitter @galendara, and view more of her artwork at her website.
