NAKID MAGAZINE declares John Coulthart an artist to watch.
These Interior illustrations by John Coulthart in Lovecraft’s Monsters, (edited by Ellen Datlow, Tachyon Publications, 2014) are dark, intricate, and absolutely amazing! Coulthart, a British graphic artist, illustrator, author and designer who has produced book covers, illustrations, CD covers and posters.
Coulthart is a legend respectively in his craft – dark, mysterious, and moving images that tend to disturb as well as inspire. His work is something eerily reminiscent of a cult classic or late 60’s/70’s horror films art work. He also has been updating a daily blog entitled feuilleton cataloguing interests, obsessions and passing enthusiasms since February 2006. Nominated for a British Fantasy Award, for Best Artist, in 2005, Coulthart continues to push the limits of fantasy and horror in a way only he can. In 2012 he won the Artist of the Year award at the World Fantasy Awards. John Coulthart is everything we try to embody at Nakid – talented, pushing limits, and staying true to his own ambition and inspirations, and we absolutely love his work!
