Overview

Published originally for publisher Apex Book Company over the course of two years, "Life As An Artist In Repose" is a look at the trials and tribulations of daily life as an artist. From working with customers in a gallery, to dealing with others who steal work, an artist's life is not always easy. Author and published artist Russell Dickerson takes a look at being an artist in a modern world, avoiding the worst practices of the publishing genres, and trying to continue creating artwork as a way of life.

Dickerson talks about a number of subjects that artists see in their working world, including:

- Too many awful book covers getting praise;
- Authors and publishers posting a great cover online and never giving credit to the artist;
- Using an artist's work for other things without permission;
- Arrogance and being good to others instead of an "artiste";
- Perception can change not only the reader's visual idea, but how artists interpret the story;

and much more.

Meet the Author

Russell Dickerson has been an artist since the late 90′s, and a published illustrator since 1999, when a couple of magazines featured his work at the same time. Since then, he has completed many works for various publishers, from small micro-press publishers up through larger publishers like Subterranean and Cemetery Dance.

He had a piece chosen for the prestigious Spectrum annual, a yearly competition and book for the best in contemporary genre artwork. The artwork was originally for Wicked Hollow #1, a small press magazine, and is titled "Fetal Position". It appeared in Spectrum 9, and somehow was the only grayscale piece for 20 pages in any direction.

He did three covers and signature sheets for three of the Maelstrom imprint of Thunderstorm Books: Six Days by Kelli Owen, and The Rising: Deliverance and A Gathering of Crows, both by Brian Keene. He also created foil hardcover designs for the first Maelstrom set, as well as for the 2011 set.

He has worked quite a bit with Cemetery Dance Publications as well, one of the premier genre publishers. He's been in their magazine several times now, including new work for stories by Peter Straub and Peter Crowther. He has also done work for a number of their books, including Dark Delicacies, T.M. Wright's Eyes of the Carp, and Brian Keene's Scratch. His work appears on upcoming (2012) Cemetery Dance releases by author Ray Garton, including the books "Vortex" and "Dereliction".
