I am a traditional artist that found my way to the world of dark art to create
gorgeously disturbed artwork in diverse media, from digital visuals, to
book covers and illustrations, to three-dimensional sculpture. Though
new to the Los Angeles art scene, my images of fallen angels, aspiring
demons, and barely human outsiders have caught the attention of horror
connoisseurs and fellow artists such as Clive Barker (Abarat), Kat VonD (tattoo artist) and Del Howison (Dark Delicacies: Haunted). This new world revealed an un-traveled path in my creativity. A
path that has taken me deeper within myself and ultimately has become a
journey of self-discovery. I am a self-taught artist. I experimented and dabbled
until I refined my dark expression of my angelic and demonic art. These
are images that have plagued my dreams for years and now have found
freedom to haunt me no longer. I create out of
necessity and now I want to share just a shadow of my spirit.

This From: Eric J. Guignard. . .
"For those who didn’t hear, AFTER DEATH… just won the 2013 Bram Stoker Award® for superior achievement in an anthology!!
Winning a Bram Stoker Award is an amazing accomplishment, and you all should feel proud to have been an integral part of this. The company we share in this year’s other awards categories is breathtaking (with a special kudos to one of our own, Joe McKinney, who also won in his own category of Young Adult novel).
Particular thanks to our publisher, Stan Swanson, at Dark Moon Books, and our illustrator, Audra Phillips who vividly brought each story to life through her artwork.
Below is the official announcement, and here is a link to video of the entire awards presentation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=3qOS2tdeFuQ&app=desktop"
Very exciting! Not only is it the very first book I've fully illustrated but it's an AWARD WINNING Book! Congratulations to all the great authors and awesome editor Eric Guignard! Woo Hoo!

Well, the 35 illustrations for this book are finally finished!
The book is due out April, 2013
Publishers Weekly has released an early review:
"...Though the majority of the pieces come from the darker side of the genre, a solid minority are playful, clever, or full of wonder. This makes for good variety but a bit of emotional whiplash, somewhat mitigated by Guignard’s clever introductions and Audra Phillips’s portraitlike illustrations. This strong and well-themed anthology is sure to make readers contemplative even while it creates nightmares. (May)"
Please go to the link to read the whole review, but I had to share. The artist hardly gets mentioned in a review so it's a pretty special day.
Here's a few teaser images:

Soda pop label I created for the Richard Matheson signing at Dark Delicacies.
Richard Matheson (born February 20, 1926) is an American author and screenwriter, primarily in the fantasy, horror, and science fiction genres. He is perhaps best known as the author of What Dreams May Come, Bid Time Return, A Stir of Echoes, The Incredible Shrinking Man, and I Am Legend, all of which have been adapted as major motion pictures. Matheson has also written for several The Twilight Zone television show episodes such as "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet", and adapted his 1971 short story Duel into a screenplay later that year for the Steven Spielberg directed television movie of the same name. - Wikipedia

I've been commissioned to do the cover art for a new book! It's all pretty hush-hush at the moment, but as soon as I can I'll post a link to the image and the book! Lets just say it's right up my alley!
Here's the first little tid bit and an image of the cover art!
This is what the book will be about and if your a writer consider submitting a story!
My art has been featured at The Knightsbridge Theatre in Los Angeles, for the production of MEDEA, directed by Travis Terry.
