Yes, in the series he's called the Yellow King, but it's the same character, with Carcosa and all the Black Stars stuff !
A few years ago I did this drawing about the King in Yellow, in a quite decadent style as a tribute to this whole bunch of artists as Aubrey Beardsley (mostly) or Harry Clarke (slightly) and the authors they are associated with like Oscar Wilde, Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft (who re-used the King in Yellow as Hastur) and of course, Robert W. Chambers.
Once or twice or more someone stole my artwork to use it to illustrate self-editing copies of the King in Yellow.
Since the TV show got some big success, Chambers' book became a best-seller, 150 years after its first publication. Again, I found my artwork here and there on the internet, credited or not, in many articles about True Detective. It's really flattering and frustrating at the same time !
Happilly, a few weeks ago, a Californian and a Brazilian editor came to contact me to get the authorisation to use my artwork as a cover. I'm now happy to say that two versions of the book, in English and in Portuguese are now avaible, using my version of the King in Yellow.
I never thought this would happen, so I thank Malachite Publishing and Intreseca for the interest they showed about my artork, and of course HBO, True Detective and Nick Pizzolatto for bringing light to this book !
