Freak show Greg Sta­ples’ 2014 World Hor­ror Con high­lights

ImagineFX - - Imagine Nation News -

Il­lus­tra­tor and comic artist Greg Sta­ples was one of the guests of hon­our at this year’s four-day World Hor­ror con­ven­tion in Port­land, Ore­gon, which took place last month.

Greg’s well known for his work on 2000 AD’s Judge Dredd, as well as World of Warcraft and Magic: The Gath­er­ing, and he was thrilled to be part of such a unique event. “It’s im­por­tant,” he says, “for artists to rep­re­sent our field in all its di­ver­sity, to keep il­lus­tra­tion fresh in people’s minds.

“There were many high­lights. But for me the big­gest was be­ing among such a distin­guished line-up of hor­ror writ­ers. I also en­joyed talk­ing to Vic­to­ria Price, daugh­ter of Vin­cent Price, about her fa­ther’s movies.”

Greg has worked ex­ten­sively in the hor­ror genre, in­clud­ing il­lus­trat­ing The Hor­ror Sto­ries of Robert E Howard, and cre­at­ing art for film and tele­vi­sion projects such as World War Z, Solomon Kane and BBC’s The Fades. But he feels it’s im­por­tant to get out the stu­dio from time to time.

“I just en­joy meet­ing new and ex­cit­ing people, whether they’re fans or people I’m work­ing with in the in­dus­try.”
