Artist Focus: Glenn Chadbourne

Glenn Chadbourne is an American artist living in Newcastle, Maine. Born in October 1959, Glenn was an only child with no other kids to play with nearby when growing up, so he would draw to entertain himself.

Best known for his work in the horror and fantasy genre, he attended Lincoln Academy before continuing his education at The Portland School of Art. Glenn later attended the University of Maine at Augusta as well as the University of Southern Maine.

His first published work was in the 1980′s for Castle Rock which was a Stephen King related¬† newsletter.

Comics ChillVille and Farmer Fiend’s Horror Harvest were illustrated, written and self published by Glenn in the early 1990′s but unfortunately weren’t a success. A chance meeting with Rick Hautala in a local Border’s store led Glenn to illustrate a collection of short stories called Bedbugs. It was with this publication that Glenn formed a relationship with Cemetery Dance Productions and went on to draw and paint artworks for a variety of their books, comics and magazines.

As Glenn’s work got noticed he started to create pieces for other publishers and so far has created work for over 50 books – one of the most notable being for Stephen King’s Secretary of Dreams. The first volume took over two years to complete – with Glenn enjoying every second of it and is currently working on Volume Two.

Glenn has kindly created various pieces for our projects.
