2012 World Fantasy Artist of the Year, John Coulthart, designs logo for YA fantasy series

CENTRAL LONDON, U.K. - July 28, 2014 - PRLog -- English graphic artist, John Coulthart, the 2102 World Fantasy Artist of the Year, has teamed up with English author Brendan Murphy to design the logo for the author's six-book YA fantasy series, entitled Sebastian and the Hibernauts. Coulthart, who is a regular collaborator with Alan Moore and whose work is heavily inspired by HP Lovecraft, turned to Celtic mythology for the design. The series explores the psychological and moral landscape of a troubled boy turning teenager and is both an homage to Celtic mythology and an allegory of the Troubles in Ireland. In the first instalment, Beyond the Gloaming, a cowardly Yorkshire boy must brave the ghostly Gloaming if he is to save the Celtic dreamworld of his ancestors. The book introduces Hibercadia, a world brimful of hunkypunks and gobbleratches, quizzing glasses and shillelaghs, mechanical fireworks and night rainbows, tragedy and joy.

The logo can be viewed at hibernauts.com and more of John Coulthart's work can be viewed at johncoulthart.com. For further information on the author please visit brendanmurphyauthor.com

Beyond the Gloaming is released October 1st 2014 by Phantasm Books, an imprint of Assent Publishing, Pittsburgh, PA.
