Alan M. Clark

Artist Guest of Honor

SF&F/Horror Illustrator, Artist, Author and Publisher

Alan M. Clark;

Alan M. Clark was born in Nashville, Tennessee in 1957.

He graduated in 1979 from the San Francisco Art Institute with a bachelor of Fine Arts Degree.

In 1984 he became a free lance illustrator, and since has produced work ranging in subject from fantasy, science fiction, horror, and mystery for publishers of fiction, to cellular and molecular biology for college text books. He has produced work for young adults and provided the artwork for two childrens books.

Clark has illustrated the writing of such authors as Ray Bradbury, Robert Bloch, Joe R. Lansdale, Stephen King, George Orwell, Manly Wade Wellman, Greg Bear, Spider and Jeanne Robinson, and Lewis Shiner, as well as his own.

A major influence for his art comes from the Surrealists, particularly Max Ernst. He is fascinated with the use of what he calls "controlled accidents" and the possibility of "finding" images within the paint. A great advocate of collaboration, Clark has worked with many others in both literary and visual art.

His awards in the illustration field include, the World Fantasy Award four Chesley Awards, the Deathrealm Award and the first International Horror Guild Critic's Award for Best Artist.

There are three antholgies, The Imagination Fully Dilated series, of stories based on his artwork by such authors as Jack Ketchum, Richard Laymon, Charles De Lint, Ramsey Campbell, Allen Steele, Jeff VanderMeer and Poppy Z. Brite.

Clark has sold short fiction to the anthologies, More Phobias, The Book of Dead Things, Dead on Demand, and Darkside, and to the magazines Midnight Hour and The Silver Web. Siren Promised, his Bram Stoker Award-nominated novel, written with Jeremy Robert Johnson, was released in 2005. His two book series with Stephen Merritt and Lorelei Shannon, THE BLOOD OF FATHER TIME, BOOKS 1 & 2, a dark time-travel fantasy, was released by Five Star Books in 2007.

Mr. Clark's publishing company, IFD Publishing, has released six books, the most recent of which is a full color book of his artwork, The Paint in My Blood, available on his website.

Currently, he and his wife Melody reside in Eugene Oregon.
