Yesterday I got the confirmation that my image "Journey to Shatter Island" is going to be featured in the next Ballistic Expose 11 on pages 170-171. I even got two pages. :)

Journey to Shatter Island by ErikShoemaker

I'm reaallllllly happy about it since I've been trying to get a spot in the prestigious artbook for five years but my submissions were never even shortlisted. It is one of the remaining goals I always wanted to achieve. Now I have to set myself some new ones. :)


In other news- The Depthcore collective released a new chapter called 'Primal'. I'm in with one image which you may have found in your inbox today:

Three-Eyed Crow by ErikShoemaker

You can check the full chapter here: www.depthcore.com/chapter/prim…

Some features from 'Primal':
