Gluttony—About the Artist and Our First Illustration 1.0

We’re very proud to be working with artist Luke Spooner of Carrion and Hoodwink House. He has an innate ability to design the perfect cover with minimal direction. If you’re ever in need of artwork, check out his websites. I promise you won’t be disappointed.


Luke Spooner, a.k.a. ‘Carrion House’ and ‘Hoodwink House,’ currently lives and works in the South of England. Having graduated from the University of Portsmouth with a first class degree he is now a full-time illustrator and writer for just about any project that piques his interest. Despite regular forays into children’s books and fairy tales, for which he has won awards for literary and artistic merit, his true love is anything macabre, melancholy or dark in nature and essence. He believes that the job of putting someone else’s words into a visual form, to accompany and support their text, is a massive responsibility as well as being something he truly treasures.

Luke has designed every cover for the Seven Deadly Sins series. He can be found on Facebook, and at his Carrion House and Hoodwink House websites.



For his story, “When Your Number’s Up,” Michael Donoghue created an illustration. It’s a fascinating look at a possible future and a peek into the mind of a master storyteller. Examine the picture and then read his story in Gluttony. You won’t be disappointed. This is our very first illustration for SDS. We plan to add some more for the box set, due out Fall 2018.
