'In Metal We Trust!' - Volume 1 cover by Lord-Retsudo
'In Metal We Trust!' - Volume 1 cover
Old digital art o' mine given new life - and incorporated into my cover design for a brand new compilation of underground, unsigned metal bands. Steve (who runs Sixsixsix Music) and I had a great time selecting bands for this. The standards were insanely high but we think that's for the best - we want to help get these guys signed and noticed! With your support, that can happen.

The idea is that each download will cost only a dollar. Yes, $1. None of which will be profit, but ploughed back into promotion and getting new, unknown metal bands out there, with styles ranging from grindcore to Celtic, thrash and black metal.

Check out the brand new release here:…

This one turned semi-pro (semi = not making enough cash from art - yet - to quit the day job) back in 2011. Since then am building a small but solid client base in book cover and illustration works.

N.B. Please don't ask me to produce work for you without any offer of payment. Once upon a time I did do this, when I was half the artist I am now and didn't have regular real-world client commitments and deadlines. If you're genuinely interested, then so am I, so drop me a note and we can discuss details.

Beyond this, the rest of my time is spent running Fenriswulf Books - publishers and purveyors of dark, independent and quirky literature, comics and art.

Main works, apart from the Trinity Chronicles, include the historical (and sometimes hysterical) Scottish comic serial Sword of Lochglen - the first 2 issues of which are available in prnt, or as downloads, at the official 'Lochglen' webpage:

Aye.  So, what happened to "they can take our lives, but never our Freedom?"  So much for painting my face blue!

You are welcome!  If you like my look and ever need reference photos, I would be honored to give some to you.  I have thousands that are not posted on dA (that also fully show my face) - everything from classic nudes to highly erotic.  Keep up the great work!
