Something Wicked This Way Comes – Book Cover By Brian Atkins!

A big thanks to Brian Atkins over at deviantART or as he is better known there, Toddoss. Posted below is his fantastic book cover design for Ray Bradbury’s Something Wicked This Way Comes…I just find that as Halloween gets nearer my thoughts naturally turn to that dark and sweet story.

Brian had this to say about his piece of art: “This is a cover rendition for Ray Bradbury’s Something Wicked This Way Comes. I am not a great fan of Ray Bradbury’s work but I was convinced by a friend to work up this cover. As an exercise in vector I did this picture in Illustrator which was definitely a learning experience. I would really like to do more cover art.”

I would absolutely love to have his design of the nefarious Mr. Dark on a T-Shirt!
