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

Sun King sconce 2
Basswood, copper and glass, 22"/56cm high.  The need to illuminate a
mudroom was the impetus for this project, I wasn't finding any
interesting commercially available sconces so why not make one?  As I
carved I thought about how this character has the duty of bringing light
to the darkness, and so a bit of a story suggested design elements,
such as the stars and moons).

Ghouls 2
18x24" acrylic on canvas.

This is a commission for a book cover, I can share the art at this point but I can't say much else until the book gets released (at which point I will update this page with more info).  I can say it is H.P. Lovecraft related and it is a clever concept, but that's about it.  I had a great time painting this, it has been some while since I've worked on a proper canvas and the client couldn't have been more encouraging to let me self direct.

That's kind of you to say, thank you! :) 

I noticed you've been on Deviantart for some time, when are you going to share your art here??

 If I ever get a scanner or digital camera I'll try to upload something. A computer is about as high tech as I get. I'm one of those people who still doesn't have a cell phone. :) I've also sort of taken a break from art and need to get working again and make it presentable.
  Thanks for the tip about the HPL Providence statue btw. I've always wanted to go there and see his grave and the "shunned house", etc.. It will be one more thing to visit, someday. I hope you had a wonderful birthday! :)

I don't have a cell phone, either! :lol:  I don't argue their usefulness, but it is also another thing to carry around (and lose) and they seem to eat up a lot of people's time and attention... meanwhile the world is passing them by.

I went to art school in Providence and unknowingly walked by the shunned house every day for about two years, it wasn't until I moved that I realized what that house was.

Well, I hope one way or another you can share your art with others.  Maybe you could borrow a camera?

thanks for your birthday wishes, I had a very nice day. :)
