Artist: Erik Wilson



This page was created to show off just a small portion of the fantastic artwork and illustrations of the fabulous Erik Wilson, of The Little Sisters of Eluria fame. These pictures were taken by me at the 1999 SKEMER (Stephen King E-MailERs... www.skemers.com) convention held in Bangor, Maine, in which Mr. Wilson himself was the guest of honour. He told us all about his experiences as an artist and how he got the job of doing the title artwork for Little Sisters. He was also very kind to sit down with some of us and do illustrations of some of our favorite and memorable scenes from Stephen King's stories... and he did an illustration for me too! (the LBD's as seen below).

These pictures that follow are of Erik "in work", and of his final products. Some of them are in full detail, others are just line sketches, but either way, they are absolutely remarkable.

At the 1999 SKEMER convention, I asked Erik if he'd be willing to do illustrations for my own proposed book, The Dark Tower Compendium (as explained on this website under the section The Dark Tower Encyclopedia) and he said he would be more than happy to offer his help with the artwork. He also said that compared to Michael Whelan (of The Gunslinger fame), he works for dirt cheap! WOOOO HOOOO for me, huh? hahaha!!

Anyways, here it is! Enjoy! *smile*
