Tribute to Stephen Gammell


















Not sure what to title this one, but this is my attempt at the style of the awesome Stephen Gammell. His illustrations from the old Scary Stories series are just terrifyingly beautiful. I've been obsessed since I was a kid. If you don't already have the original books, do yourself a favor and get them.

Lovely as always. What mediums do you use in your work? I admire your technique :)

Hey thanks! It's a mix of traditional/digital media - most start off as graphite/charcoal sketches.

Could you possibly do short youtube tutorials to demonstrate to demonstrate some of your techniques.

Yeah, I'll be doing some videos eventually, just haven't really gotten around to it yet. But there is sort of a step-by-step tutorial for the scarecrow painting I did a while back 'Dead Wringer'.
