Vincent Chong came onto the horror and fantasy scene several years ago with a sequence of artworks. Since then he has gone on to provide cover artwork for authors such as Stephen King. Now some of his artwork is collected in Altered Visions.
Altered Visions is being published by Telos Publishing as an A5, full colour hardback edition. The book is additionally signed by Vincent Chong and Simon Clark, and is being published for the World Horror Convention 2010.
Vincent Chong was born in 1981 in Manchester, England. According to his parents he started drawing from the age of two, but it has only been the past few years that he has been working as a professional freelance Illustrator and Designer.
His work has popped up on book and CD covers, magazines and websites around the world and he has been known to pick up the odd award or two.
Since his early days of drawing mutant turtles and ghost-busting heroes in pen on scraps of paper for friends, he has evolved his illustration technique into a style that combines the use of graphic software and photography with traditional painting and drawing methods.
He currently lives alone in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in a self-imposed, semi-hermitic existence so that he can focus on producing more artwork for your viewing pleasure.
