Michael K. Silva has been drawing since the age of five. His art is influenced by the art of Frank Frazetta, Boris Vallejo, the horror writings of Robert E. Howard and H.P. Lovecraft, Marvel Comic's run of Conan the Barbarian, Heavy Metal Magazine, comics, and horror movies of the 1970s and 1980s. Themes that he explores with his art are horror or eroticism and sometimes both in the same piece. His traditional style is black and white pencil, but he has experimented with ink, ink and colored pencils, digital art and paint. He has self-published a book of his artwork titled The Diabolical Art Of Michael K. Silva.
He is also a writer of Sword & Sorcery fiction short stories, horror fiction short stories, and science fiction short stories. He has self-published a science fiction novella titled Koneko, science fiction novel titled The Destroying Hand, the now defunct horror fiction magazine The Nightmare Engine, and the dark fiction publication Dark Somewhere. He has also self-published an anthology of his dark fiction titled The Unfurling Darkness and an anthology of his Sword & Sorcery fiction titled The Flash Of A Blade. He is currently working on scripts for two comic books that he plans to self-publish.
