It’s not hard to see why Erik is such an in-de­mand artist. The Cal­i­for­nia-based free­lancer has a port­fo­lio full of glo­ri­ously macabre, highly in­ven­tive art­work, which has found clients in the likes of Wiz­ards of the Coast, DC Comics and Blizzard En­ter­tain­ment, to name just a few.

His work can be seen adorn­ing the cover of Dark Horse Comics’ adap­ta­tion of Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Ho­gan’s vam­pire novel se­ries The Strain, and the forth­com­ing Aliens vs. Preda­tor ti­tle.

Erik stud­ied with ac­claimed artist Jeff Watts be­fore go­ing on to be­come a lead in­struc­tor at his school, Watts Ate­lier of the Arts. Work­ing in the video game in­dus­try as a con­cept de­signer, 3D artist and as an il­lus­tra­tor, he’s picked up nom­i­na­tions for the Il­lie Award and Ch­es­ley Award, and has won the Hor­ror Comics Award.
