Paul Carrick
Artist
United States
Greetings! I am a freelance illustrator/artist from Boston, much of my work falls into the fantasy/games genre, with a specialty of H.P. Lovecraft inspired art. I've been enjoying music illustration (CDs, LPs and the like) recently and would welcome more of it.

Current Residence: Boston, Massachusetts, USA

carving practice- art nouveau head 2 by nightserpent
carving practice- art nouveau head 2
Stained/waxed Butternut wood, 3-1/2 x 3-1/2 x 7"

I have a large project in mind involving a lot of carving with traditional hand tools.  I don't have much experience so I have to start figuring it out!  Here's my first official attempt, which I have based roughly on a plaster casting I have of an art nouveau era carving.    It is very challenging for one who mostly paints, but I am thoroughly enjoying the learning process.  Learning how to sharpen and maintain all the differently shaped chisels and gouges is a major hurdle in itself, but it is very rewarding when you make very clean and controlled cuts.

Hi Paul.
There's a guy, Justin Cardiff, who's creating a Lovecraftian anthology. All artists are welcome to participate with their works, and by doing so they get a chance to get featured in his anthology books (there will be a kickstarter campaign if I got it right, and the artists will share the income).

The submission period should have ended, but Justin decided to extend it up until February, so that more artists would contribute (there are only 20 at the moment, including myself). 
You can read more below.

All the best!
