Richey Beckett is an illustrator, based in rural Wales, UK. Working predominantly in pen and ink, he has gained recognition for his intricately detailed record covers, movie posters, and screen printed artwork.
Beckett uses traditional pen and ink methods to create lavishly detailed pieces of black and white illustration. Taking influence from historic biblical, literary and natural history illustrators and engravers such as Doré, Dürer, Audubon and Bewick, along with the decorative flair of Art Nouveau, he creates his own organic world which expands with each new piece.
Richey has created art for Metallica, The Grateful Dead, Mondo (A Game Of Thrones, The Lord Of The Rings, Army Of Darkness), Foo Fighters, Robert Plant, AMC (The Walking Dead) and The British Film Institute.
