This book collects a selection of the dramatic and sometimes macabre art of illustrator, Ken Meyer Jr.
Hello and thanks for taking some interest in my Kickstarter project. This fundraising effort is to facilitate the publishing of my book, Into the Crimson Light, which collects some of the best art I have done in the fantasy/horror genre. This work was done for comics, role playing games, books and magazines and has not been collected in one book before now. I hope you will consider contributing and accepting my thanks, along with the various rewards I am offering for your kind contributions. If you would like to see a sampling of my work, feel free to see my website at www.kenmeyerjr.com. At this point, I have 88 pages of art, sketches, step by step processes and more in an 8 1/2 x 11 softcover edition. Depending on how the drive goes, I may be able to do hardcover and add more pages!
My career has included artwork for comic book companies such as Marvel, Image, Caliber, Dark Horse and more. In the role playing game industry, I have done hundreds of illustrations for White Wolf Games (for books and cards), Wizards of the Coast (Magic the Gathering cards and other work) and other games such as Middle Earth, Shadowfist, Legend of the Five Rings, Dragonstorm, and others. I worked for a few years on the popular online game, Everquest and have been in 5 volumes of Spectrum (the best Fantasy/SF art of the year). In addition, I have illustrated for educational training, military training, advertising, and have done portraits and commissions as well. When people ask me what I have done, the short answer is, "everything from children's coloring books to Penthouse Forum!"
Again, thanks for taking the time out to see what I have to offer.
Just a heads up, people, I am open to substituting different items for rewards, just send me a message and I am sure we can work it out!
