So I was invited to create artwork for the first POET ANDERSON…OF NIGHTMARES novel. The book was co-written by musician, producer and director Tom DeLonge and NY Times bestselling author Suzanne Young.

POET ANDERSON…OF NIGHTMARES is the latest installment in the Poet Anderson transmedia experience, which began with the award-winning animated short Poet Anderson: The Dream Walker, the critically acclaimed comic book prequel of the same name and the Billboard Hot 100 album The Dream Walker by rock band Angels & Airwaves.

It’s been a pleasure.
