Richey Beckett is a pen and ink illustrator based in rural Wales. He has lent his intricately detailed linework to record covers for some of the world's biggest bands. Drawing inspiration from biblical and natural history illustrators and engravers such as Doré, Durer and Bewick, the decorative flair of Art Nouveau, the striking colours of psychedelia, and the organic textures and patterns of nature, Beckett has crafted his own vivid visual language that expands with each piece.
Over the last decade, Beckett has been invited to create artwork for Metallica, The Doors, The Grateful Dead, Foo Fighters, Queens Of The Stone Age, Mastodon, Nine Inch Nails, Jack White, Robert Plant, and Black Sabbath.
He has created movie posters and official artwork for Jim Henson’s "Labyrinth," HBO’s "Game Of Thrones," Sam Raimi’s "Army Of Darkness," John Boorman’s "Zardoz," AMC’s "The Walking Dead," Robin Hardy’s "The Wicker Man," and David Robert Mitchell’s "It Follows."
