Creative Collective, Year In Review

January 28, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

What started as a curiosity to force myself to read the work other writers (due a commitment of time that I’m poor at allotting—not a lack of interest) turned into a project that reached beyond my wildest expectations. Eleven amazing artists, and not o…

Creative Collective: David Antrobus

December 3, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Getting to know David was one of those ‘six-degrees-of-separation’ encounters. A few months back, I lost a member of my editorial team (to a new career, not the Great Beyond), and found myself in growing and desperate need of an editor. I reached out t…

Creative Collective: Joshua Ezzell

November 3, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Josh and I came into contact through Leo, who many of you know through the extraordinary visual art that he has created for my world. Together the three of us created the latest trailer for the series, and all of that flair, movement and life came sole…

Creative Collective: Simon J. Cambridge

October 1, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Such a grand, literary name for a person who I feel is a genius of the written word. I don’t remember how, exactly, I first encountered Simon’s work. I believe it was while browsing for a new fantasy title to read on my Kindle. The simplicity and stark…

Creative Collective: George Chestak

September 3, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

An undertaking of mine this year has been to celebrate the milestone of completing the Feasts series with a very specific memento: a tattoo. I had Leo draft up an initial concept and brought it with me when visiting various tattoo parlors, putting down…

Creative Collective: Leo Black

August 6, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

It is my absolute pleasure to present today’s artist; a man who’s work many of you already know so well…The one, and only: Leo Black. It would be a slight against him to simply recycle images of Leo’s previous, Geadhain-themed, works for today’s post…

Creative Collective: Julie Frayn

July 2, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Today’s Creative Collective feature is for a very special artist: the homegrown, Canadian queen of saucy-literature-that-parents-might-slap-you-for-reading (not good parents–overprotective ones!): Julie Frayn. I feel she’s the perfect writer to featur…

Creative Collective: J.H. Moncrieff

May 20, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

I’d like to thank the folks at JKS Communications for introducing J.H. and I; a Creative Collective opportunity that wouldn’t otherwise have happened. Horror has always been a second genre and calling of mine, and it’s that darkness (and fear and wonde…

Creative Collective: Nya Designs

April 30, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Behind every visionary is a strong, silent partner, right? Well, the same is true for artists and creatives, and their partners are many. Art, as we know it in this age, isn’t just about creating something and then setting it free into the world. With…

Creative Collective: Suzanne van Pelt

March 26, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

I’m a sucker for glossy fantasy realism, which is why I immediately fell in love with Suzanne’s pieces. Although she’s using modern techniques, you can see a lot of old-world influences to her characters and settings–again, a weakness of mine. Romanti…
