Who the Hell is Martin Whitmore?
What an excellent question! Two cookies for you.
Martin Whitmore is a dangerous and brilliant evil illustrator who specializes in abstract concepts and character development, with a particular passion for anything that involves horror elements, hot scantily-clad pinup girls, D&D and adventure comics. He does lots of brilliant business illustration as well, including his work on The Usual Error (book page, illustration gallery) and illustrations for business websites, like the Raw Foods Witch, Sell What’s In Your Head, Linda Eaves’ Getting Off the Couch and Into the World, and dozens of others. He’s also done illustration work for Naomi Dunford’s IttyBiz SpeakEasy, Sonia Simone’s Remarkable Marketing Blueprint, countless small content illustrations, quite a few beautiful headers, and every now and then, an Evil Dead castmembers portrait. He’s also illustrated a few really great ebooks, and he maintains a webcomic called Tasty Flesh about strippers surviving the zombie apocalypse.
