This demon artist appears to be painting a canvas while using a human skull as a palette. His canvas is propped up against some tomes, possibly bound in human skin? Any thoughts?
Rebecca and CJ will be getting out the salt and watching Supernatural for clues.
Silly Illo artist Ian Gunn
Ian Gunn, creator of these silly illos (illustrations), was a much-loved award-winning artist based in Melbourne. Cancer took him from us too soon.
Ian left a legacy including lots of great illustrations. Many of these illustrations are available for sale.
Victoria’s science fiction convention, Continuum, occasionally presents the Ian Gunn Memorial Award recognising the ‘unsung heroes’ of fandom: people consistently working in the background who never expect any recognition of their efforts. This commemorates Ian’s selfless efforts to reach out to others, encouraging others and thereby building the science fiction community.
K’rin Pender-Gunn, Ian’s widow, gave Dark Matter Zine permission to republish Ian’s artwork. Thanks, K’rin!
