The Art of Mister Sam

If you've read, or even seen my book, Strange Intruders, you'll know that it has an absolutely fantastic cover depicting some of the weird entities covered inside.

In fact, the cover turned out so stunning that after numerous request, I had prints made of it.  They're always a hit at conferences and the larger size really highlights the work.

The art was created by English born Sam Shearon, aka "Mister Sam."  Sam contacted me when I was deep into finishing Strange Intruders.  He's a pretty humble guy and didn't bother to mention that he had already created some amazing art for notable rock stars like Rob Zombie and Iron Maiden.  But, following my intuition, and the synchronicity of his email, I decided to see what he would come up with for the book's cover.  Needless to say, I was floored by the results.  I gave Sam some very basic ideas, asking for the particular entities that ended up on the cover, and telling him that the idea was that they were attempting to "pierce through" into our world.  He took the concept and ran.

I'm happy to say that I became friends with Sam during the course of the book.  He's a talented guy and he's long been interested in the strange world of cryptids, UFOs and assorted fields.  Sam has a very defined artistic sense that enables him to create images from witness descriptions that bring life to these entities in a visual, creepy way.

He's created a wide range of art from album covers, to comic books, and somehow, his work continues to improve.

Recently, he's turned his attention to creating prints of some of his work, and anyone interested in cryptozoology, and Bigfoot in particular, will be pleased to see his first creation, a stunning depiction of the creature witnessed at Bluff Creek.

We're lucky that a fellow with this kind of talent has the time to make items like this available, so grab one while you can!
