A concept cover for the Ray Bradbury’s book Something Wicked This Way Comes. Typically, horror book covers are dark and foreboding images but horror comes in many forms. I sought to play with this idea but flipping it around and letting it be more bright and festive. William Dafoe is an amazing actor and has a wickedly evil look with just a grin. I used the likeness of William Dafoe as inspiration for the central villian of the book. He floats toward the viewer as welcoming and powerful figure while hiding his true evil intentions.
