Billy Tackett
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
With humble beginnings in rural KY, award winning artist Billy Tackett freelanced tirelessly for 12 years to receive international recognition as an accomplished artist and illustrator. His numerous works include fine art paintings, portraits, and various other commercial illustrations. His work has been seen on National Geographic Channel and showcased in publications such as Horrorhound Magazine and ImagineFX and his client list includes authors Shane Moore, Curt Siodmak, Richard Lupoff and Jonathan Maberry, pro wrestler Jerry Lynn and death-rap musician Necro.

After publishing over 200 book covers he created his signature piece, Zombie Sam, which gave birth to his Dead White & Blue series and has amassed a loyal fan base that transcends all genres and stereotypes.

In addition to creating art in his studio he also attends over 20 events per year, most by invitation as Artist Guest of Honor, and has launched a line of apparel and merchandise featuring his art. His art book, For The Love Of Monsters, is out now and his graphic novel, Dead White & Blue Comics, is scheduled for release later in 2011.
