A showcase for some of the world's greatest imaginations, copiously illustrated…

A stunning find beneath the famed Dr. Thackery T. Lambshead's house years after his death: a basement space lost under a collapsed floor, in which were found the remains of a remarkable cabinet of curiosities. Containing artifacts, curios, and keepsakes collected over Dr. Lambshead's many, many decades, the cabinet of curiosities took over a year to unearth, document, and catalog. Thus, in keeping with the bold spirit exemplified by Dr. Lambshead and his exploits, we are now proud to present highlights from the doctor's cabinet, reconstructed not only through original visual representations by the likes of Mike Mignola, Greg Broadmore, and Jan Svankmajer, but also through exciting stories of intrigue and adventure." - quote source from io9

I have two artworks appearing in this fascinating book.  Authors Michael Cisco and CaitlĂ­n R. Kiernan wrote short fiction inspired by the artworks, giving strange life to equally strange artifacts from the cabinet of Thackery T. Lambshead.

Excerpts from the two stories associated with my art can be found in this recent article at Weird Tales Magazine.

You can purchase the book from Amazon here.
