Artist Spotlight: Matt Davis

artistLovecraftian crafter of the terrifyingly beautiful and strange, author of the gripping soon-to-be released Red Sky Blues, and powerful employer of evocative symbolism and metaphor, Rock and Hill Studio‘s Matt Davis is known for potent cover art and gracefully wicked imagery.

Matt’s work is a haunting collection of mirrors that stare back into the viewer with a life all their own. Every piece draws in and captivates his audience with otherworldly tales of frightful primal truths hidden just beyond the veil of accepted reality.

Author’s take note, Matt’s ability to employ dynamic imagery and provocative symbolism to weave entire stories in a single static image not only makes him an attention grabbing artist, but an excellent cover art designer. His imagery will steal the attention of potential readers as they scan shelves upon selves, webpage upon webpage, in search of their next read.

13CitiesConfess it or not, books are judged by their covers. When an incredible novel is saddled with poor cover design, it is likely going to be skipped over in favor of a book that was able to grab the attention of someone wading through an ocean of books. A strong cover may mean the difference between a sale or a pass.

I admire how Matt’s work screams READ THIS BOOK!, and I have engaged books outside my preferred genre because his covers alone.

Check out his portfolio, and if you fall in love with his work as I have, Matt has prints available at the Rock and Hill Studio shop.  If you are interested in commissioning cover art, Matt Davis (@GreyDevil13) can be contacted here.
