Beyond Stoker's Dracula: NOSFERATU

These are my 20 sketch cards for Cult Stuff's upcoming "Beyond Stoker's Dracula" vampire trading card set. I decided to do entirely Nosferatu sketches for this set. Played around with exaggerating his features a little and varied up the style here and there.  Let me know what you think!

Zelda's Zombie Zoo at Detroit Fanfare

I was recently a guest illustrator on a very cool and unique children's book coming out this month (debuting at Detroit Fanfare October 25th!). It's a zombie children's book, which created a little bit of a challenge in doing a tasteful illustration of something dead, rotting, and hungry for brains. In this book the character goes to a Zombie Zoo full of undead fun. Each animal is illustrated by a different artist, meaning over 25 artists worked on this one single children's book. The coolest part? This book will be available to purchase at Fanfare and the author and every single one of the artists will be there. That means you can get EVERY signature on the book! How cool is that?
Here is illustration from the book, and also some info on the book from the Detroit Fanfare website.

Making its debut at Detroit Fanfare will be a kid’s book starring Zelda as she gives a quick guide through her most unusual zoo…a zoo full of all zombie animals.  FULL COLOR, this excursion through the zombie zoo features illustrations from over 25 artists, each drawing their version of the zombiefed animals.  And to make it really special, all the creators contributing will be at Detroit Fanfare.  It’s the ultimate autograph extravaganza!  Published by Binary Publications, publishers of such fine titles at Jack Davis art books, Bettie Page, and much more. Written by Gary Reed and illustrated by Terry Pavlet.

Joshua Werner Viceroy Space APs

Hi everyone! I have been terribly neglecting my blog, which is regrettable, but it is because I've been so busy! So busy working and doing events that I have an overwhelming amount to post about, so you will probably see a lot of new posts soon!
Before I post the last few sets of cards I've worked on, I thought I'd show people what I did for the Space AP cards from the Viceroy set. These cards follow the theme of my cards from the set, mostly being of old historical astronomers, their inventions, and also constellation map style sketches.
I had 12 AP cards, all of which were commissioned and have happy homes now, which totals to 49 Joshua Werner Space sketches in existence (in case anyone wants to update their lists).
And here are the cards, they were challenging, a couple of them extremely challenging, but I'm proud of how they turned out. Your feedback is always welcomed and appreciated, and also I love to see pictures of collectors with their cards so you can always email me pics at or post them on the facebook wall at
