Since the early 1990s, D’Andrea has gradually become a staple in the West Coast music scene. His artwork is dark yet organic, heavy yet fantastic, with images weaving together rich hues, dark tones, and exceptionally complex textures and details. D’Andrea creates eerie scenes filled with stoic human figures, disillusioned faces, nature, and death. Depictions of trees, blossoming flowers, and tombstones are omnipresent, as are D’Andrea’s unusual textures – often reminiscent of reptile scales and bird feathers. His commissions include works for: Agalloch, Swans, Comus, Om, Sleep, Ulver, Witchcraft, Scott ‘Wino’ Weinrich and Sleepy Sun. More on David’s illustration for The Great Dominions here.

Benjamin Vierling is an illustrator and fine artist. His painting technique is derived from methods used in northern europe during the 15th and early 16th centuries, in which egg tempera and oil paint mediums are alternately layered, conspiring to produce a subtle radiance of tone that is difficult to create any other way. The subject matter is often painstakingly rendered from real life over the course of many months and laden with detail and symbolism. His output includes pieces for: Joanna Newsom, Weapon, Nightbringer, Anja Records, plus a number of book illustrations. More on Benjamin’s illustration for The Great Dominions here.
