Steven Salerno diverged from his usual work for children books and created illustrations to accompany a new adult fiction, Ghosts from Our Past.
The book was released as a companion book associated with the recent 2016 Ghostbusters™ movie and was written from the perspective of two main characters from the movie, paranormal activity researcher Erin Gilbert & Abby L. Yates.
Steven explains that the “essential requirements for the 30 illustrations needed for Ghosts from our Past were they needed to be rendered in black & white and must look like sketches.”
He continues, “This was a fun project for sure. And once I finished it I was immediately right back working on my other children’s books projects… Ultimately, because I was offered this project due to the editor seeing my sci-fi character sketches portfolio, I may begin exploring other assignments related to my alien creature imaginings.”
