Father Pena's Last Dance
I illustrated a short story called Father Pena's Last Dance for Realms of Fantasy, written by Hannah Strom-Martin. Steering clear of the obvious visuals, I wanted to play with the themes of good and evil (light and dark), and also represent the Priest's fall from grace. Vampires are the antagonists in the story, but I didn't want to portray them in an obvious way because the reader doesn't know about them right off the bat. They're mysterious and shadowy figures that weave in and out of the general public.
