Santa Is Alive*

*(Or is that Stan...?)

I did this piece for an anthology called Satan Is Alive, which was a tribute to the band Mercyful Fate, fronted by some fella called King Diamond. The book was put together by the handsome and talented Mr Mark Rudolph and featuring contributions by Mark, Kevin Cross, Tom Neely, Stephanie Buscema, Ben Marra, Johnny Ryan and many others.

I'd never heard Mr Diamond before Mark approached me, but the imagery was kinda fun to play with and I'm pretty happy with the finished piece, although whether or not it captures the essence of the gentleman I have no idea.

I believe the book is still available here.

  1. When I was aggressively collecting Christmas music in the 90's I found a 12" picture disc for a King Diamond Christmas single. The image on the disc was Diamond in character make-up holding up a bloody reindeer head. When I tried to find out more about him, most of what I read suggested that his (or MF's) albums built on an ongoing story that sounded like a combination of "Spiderbaby" and "Amityville Horror". To me, the concept sounded more interesting than the music and would probably make a great comic.
