A Note On The Artwork

Walter Conley came to me a couple of days ago and asked me if I would be interested in putting his artwork up at ATON.

Always interested in art that evokes feeling or setting for stories, I said, yeah, show me what you’ve got.

And Walter came through in spades.

The artwork above is Walter Conley’s, Copyright 2010.

I like that. Impressive artwork.

Michael Solender said...

Awesome, perfectly seedy and dark, reminds me of Elmore Leonard and Ellery Queen covers. Nicely done Walt.

R.S. Bohn said...

That is amazing. And yes, very evocative. I'm glad he contacted you.

And now to find more of his work...

Kevin Michaels said...

Excellent! I agree with Michael - seedy and dark and totally complementary to the site.

David Barber said...

Very cool! Walter has a great talent!

Paul D. Brazill said...

Great looking artwork.

Chris Rhatigan said...

Love it. Fits this site like a glove... or another less used metaphor...

Naomi Johnson said...

I like!

Sean Patrick Reardon said...

I love it.

AJ Hayes said...

Very cool! Like they just said. Swept me back to all those book jackets and pulp mag covers I wish I still had. I don't use this word much but: Awesome! Now I'm on RSB's trail to want to see more land.

Great stuff Walt. Perfect feel for ATON. Keep it coming.

Digging it very much. One thought: after the 600 to 700 Challenge, you should have him illustrate a few stories.
