The Thing: Artbook

My piece You've Gotta Be Fucking Kidding that I did for The Thing: Artbook, a collection of illustrations from over 350 artists responding to the classic film.  Rather than trying to imitate the complex and lurid illustrations I knew would make up most of the book, I decided to go left-field with it and do a companion piece to my Little Portrait set I did five years or so back (by far the most popular set I've done).  I was a bit worried that it might be too left-field and stick out like a sore thumb, but so far feedback has been really good.

The book comes with a foreword by Eli Roth and an afterword by John Carpenter, so there is a 0.000000001% chance that the man himself has seen my work.  That boggles my mind.
