Here is the wrap cover art for Matt Cartney’s ‘The Curse of Can-Balam’ A follow up to both ‘Sons of Rissouli, Red’ & ‘White and Black’ which I also created the covers for. It’s great when you can create something that feels adventure but is based in absolute fact. Everything I’ve painted here is real. The temple is a real place, The skull is based on a ‘mash-up’ of several existing jade skulls and the tattoos and Inca wardrobe were researched too. I try to do this with as many elements as I can in my paintings but in this painting I had the ability to make the adventure seem very real.
