Biography continues below the slideshow
Alan M. Clark became a free lance illustrator in 1984. Since then, he has produced illustrations for the genres of fantasy, science fiction, horror, historical fiction, and mystery for publishers of fiction, and cellular and molecular biology illustrations for nonfiction purposes.
He has illustrated the writing of such authors as Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, Robert Bloch, Joe R. Lansdale, George Orwell, Manly Wade Wellman, and Greg Bear, as well as his own.
A major influence for his art comes from the Surrealists, particularly Max Ernst. He is fascinated with the use of what he calls “controlled accidents” and the possibility of “finding” images within the paint. An advocate of collaboration, Clark has worked with many others in both literary and visual art.
His awards in the illustration field include, the World Fantasy Award, four Chesley Awards, the Deathrealm Award, and the first International Horror Guild Critic’s Award for Best Artist.
As of the Spring of 2022, he is the author of 21 books, including 14 novels, a lavishly illustrated novella, a lavishly illustrated novellette, four collections, and a nonfiction full-color book of his artwork. His latest book, Mudlarks and the Silent Highwayman, a lavishly illustrated novelette, was released in may, 2020. Mr. Clark’s company, IFD Publishing, has released 47 titles of various editions, including traditional books, both paperback and hardcover, audio books, and ebooks by such authors as F. Paul Wilson, Elizabeth Engstrom, John Linwood Grant, and Jeremy Robert Johnson.
