Raulo Caceres on Providence, Including Unpublished Cover Art

Though Jacen Burrows is far and away the primary artist who created nearly all the visuals associated with Providence, a few others made worthwhile contributions. Colorist Juan Manuel Rodríguez played a huge role in making Burrows art come to life. Michael DiPascale worked with Burrows to paint Weird Pulp and Ghoul variant coversSusanna Peretz, Mitch Jenkins, and others created the ghoul photograph at the end of Providence 7.

Then there’s Raulo Caceres who did the artwork for the nine “Century” variant covers. Deep in Caceres’ website, there is unpublished artwork for a tenth Providence cover.

Big Providence Kickstarter Campaign Underway Today

0f3ee791b41be8963a65e24fafbbcdee_originalAvatar Press launched a Kickstarter campaign today for handsome-looking new slipcase edition of Providence, which includes Neonomicon, plus a new “Dreadful Beauty” art book featuring Jacen Burrows 100+ covers.

The Kickstarter campaign also has a dozen more variant covers for Providence #12, with previously unused art. There are options for inexpensive digital editions to very high-end editions signed by Moore and Burrows.

We’re doing some annotation of covers these days. Though Providence doesn’t come out until late May 2015, covers for issues # 1-3 have already been publicized by Avatar Press and their magazine Bleeding Cool. There are regular covers and several variant covers for each issue. The regular cover is annotated on the page for that issue (Providence #1, #2, and #3.)

We’ve given each of the Providence variants their own page: Dreamscape, Pantheon, Portrait, and Women of HPL.
