Detail of The Hollowing


Richard A. Kirk - visual artist, illustrator & author.

Richard's work is drawn from an interest in the forms and processes of the natural world. He explores these themes through the creation of meticulous drawings in ink, graphite and silverpoint, which often depict chimerical creatures and protean landscapes. Metamorphosis is an underlying narrative in all of Richard's work.

Richard exhibits internationally. He has illustrated works by Clive Barker, Christopher Golden, Caitlin R. Kiernan, Thomas Ligotti, China Mieville, the rock band Korn and others.

Richard is the author of the novella THE LOST MACHINE (Radiolaria Studios, 2010), the novel NECESSARY MONSTERS (Resurrection House, Arche Press, 2017), and an illustrated short story collection MAGPIE’S LADDER (PS Publications, 2019).

Richard is currently working on a new novel.
