He's got death upon his tongue...

"Walking Sam" illustration by timeMOTHeye... 

Walking Sam appears on the newest Stone Breath album, The Night Birds Psalm. The song's genesis was in some strange reports about a sinister character I read in 2009. For me, it was the perfect name and theme for a kind of witchy call-and-response blues song. I wrote a part two - of a sort - called Witchwalker, which appears on my upcoming solo album/art book, Undeath (coming in 2012 from Crucial Blast records).

The illustration was done early on during the recording of The Night Birds Psalm - when the original plan was for me to do illustrations and illuminations for every song, as I did for The Silver Skein Unwound and The Shepherdess and the Bone-White Bird before. Unfortunately, Walking Sam was the only drawing I completed in time for the release (in my defense, I did complete an entire series of drawings used for Undeath in that same time).

The original illustration is available to purchase HERE.
