Art lit: New ebooks from Pale Horse Design's Chris Parks

The St. Pete artist provides both original and reference works for art lovers.

Chris Parks, the St. Pete artist behind Pale Horse Design's intricate, immaculately detailed imagery, has a few new ebooks of both his work and reference works for artists to use available for download at Illustrated Monthly. 

So ... Here's What I've Been Thinking About
is a collection of more than 75 pages of concept sketches and line drawings, taking the reader through Parks' process. The book includes hi-resolution renderings of pencil work, digital concepts and more. It's $11.99, and available for download here.

Also new from Pale Horse is, ahem, New Life: Artist Skull Ref. Vol. 1 — a 71-page collection of reference drawings of human and animal skulls from multiple angles, rendered in 300 dpi resolution for clip art and printing for your own projects. While So ... Here's What I've Been Thinking About is for those who appreciate the Pale Horse style (meaning the works within are copyrighted and not for reproduction), New Life is created specifically for artists to use in their own work. It's $14.99, and available here.

Parks and Pale Horse have one more new ebook of darkly evocative and inspiring sketches — Beautiful Death: Vol. 2, which contains 25 pages of ornate skull work and more. This one's $7.99.
