It is always a pleasure to announce a new book dealing with our favourite author. Anthony Peake published a new biography of PKD. He wrote us a message and said that this book “includes some never-before-published material”. Here is the summary:
Philip K. Dick was a hugely influential writer who drew upon his own life to address the nature of drug abuse, paranoia, schizophrenia, and transcendental experiences of all kinds. He was a prolific author and many of his books were turned into popular films such as Blade Runner, A Scanner Darkly, Total Recall, and Minority Report. This book has been written with the cooperation of several close acquaintances and looks to examine his work as well as the socio-political-cultural environment in which he lived. It will be of great interest to any fan of Philip K. Dick or science fiction in general, as well as anyone who grew up the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s.

Speaking of getting things out of storage, I actually thought this image was sold, lost, and/or otherwise undocumented. Glad to see I still had it. Perhaps not the best drawing, I still felt like it captured something of Philip K. Dick’s quote, this “Gnostic vision of God” he experienced in northern California in the 1950s.
Finally finished this ridiculous Blade Runner poster assignment. Blade Runner is one of the coolest movies because it has THE FUTURE but it’s still THE 1980S AND THERE IS HARRISON FORD AND LOS ANGELES - I was really stoked about this project.
