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.
