Beautiful Scars Fairy Tale: Meet the Dynamic Chris Moeller

Continuing the series of fabulous artists who contributed to our book, we are pleased to introduce the dynamic Christopher Moeller!

In addition to being a fount of both wit and talent, Chris is a painter par excellence! You can see his work on the covers of Lucifer and Shadow of the Bat. You can play with his paintings via Magic: The Gathering and World of Warcraft (you can even play an all Christopher Moeller Magic deck I am told). And to cap things off, he’s an amazing writer as well, having written and illustrated JLA: A League of One and Cold Steel. However, the project that is nearest and dearest to his heart is his EPIC  Iron Empires universe. Recently, he successfully launched the Kickstarter project Void.

We assigned him a moment that didn’t exist in the graphic novel, but existed in the Fairy Tale. The prose work we wrote allowed us to bring to life details and story that we couldn’t fit in the comic. Chris painted the scene: “The banshee sensed the return of the woodsman and the screeching began anew.” His sense of colours is spectacular, ranging from with the woodsman lurking in the shadows to the Banshee’s screams illuminating the scene. My favourite part of the illustration is the backdrop–the forest is believable, from the trees to the river. You can’t have a story without an environment, and the Idyllwild never looked so dramatic!

Please visit Christopher Moeller’s website and prepared to be amazed! And if you have a chance to, your should play a round of Magic with him–he’ll be carrying his own deck.

“Wow. Simply, WOW.”
