Jack Wallen has been creating art, in one form or another, since childhood. He was trained in the area of design by the auspicious tutelage of Jim Ream, where line, shape, form, focus, and negative space was king and boundaries and rules took a back seat to creativity.
But why is Jack your best choice for a cover designer? Because Jack is also a writer — who knows how much work, pain, and effort goes into the creating of a novel. Jack gets it. And Jack has a goal — to become the Zombie and the Cover King. He won’t do that by dining on the brains of helpless victims. Instead he will write and write and design and design until his fingers and mind are nothing but meat for the beasts. During that time Jack will produce works of zombie (and thriller/horror) fiction as well as delectable cover art that are both enjoyable and cringe-worthy.
Of course, being of the insane writer clan, Jack isn’t just happy with the penning of zombie fiction. Oh no, the nightmare does not end there. Like the late, great Freddy Mercury, Jack wants it all — so, he will continue writing his Fringe Killer series as well as his joyous celebration of all things diverse — Shero.
For his inspiration to begin reading and writing, Jack thanks the ever-incredible Clive Barker for penning in a genre with words of grace and horror.
