My Mother's Skin

A year after meeting the young author Brian O'Connell and hearing him read his story "My Mother's Skin" at KrallCon, he has posted it online along with my illustration that wasn't included in Ravenwood Quarterly #1. It's nice to see the image paired with the story at last.

Palladium at Night Contest

The latest Dim Shores update: "PALLADIUM AT NIGHT turned out even better than we hoped. Christopher’s story and Dave’s meticulously detailed art blended so well together. And, you may remember, there is a contest. If you buy and read PAN and then review it on Goodreads before July 5, let me know. Anyone who does so will be entered in the contest, and on July 6 I’ll use random.org to pick a winner. All reviews are eligible, regardless of the rating you give, as long as you bought the book. The winner will receive an *original* Dave Felton scratchboard that was used as one of the interior illustrations: the ossiferous satellite seen here. Limited to 200 copies as usual, there are 29 copies left for sale."

Participate for a chance to win my original art to Christopher Slatsky's Palladium at Night!

Dim Shores 015: Palladium at Night by Christopher Slatsky

I've wanted to work for Sam Cowan since we tabled together at NecronomiCon 2015, where he was selling his first three Dim Shores chapbooks by authors Jeffrey Thomas, Matthew Bartlett, and Scott Nicolay. Not only were these authors of weird fiction perfectly paired with illustrators I admired (Serhiy Krykun, Aeron Alfrey, Michael Bukowski), the books were beautifully designed and hand-numbered by Sam. Two years later, the stars are finally right.

I'm proud of our work on Christopher Slatsky's Palladium at Night.

I'll need to do an "Anatomy of a Cover" post for this book at a later date. In the meantime, don't hesitate to grab a copy of this chapbook, limited to 200 hand-numbered copies. It even comes with a print of the cover art and an embroidered NASA-style mission patch!

Eddie at the Prudential Center

To share my excitement for Iron Maiden's 2017 North American tour, I put together a scratchboard image of Eddie at the Prudential Center in Newark. The hockey player is a sculpture that stands outside the venue, the home of the New Jersey Devils.
