Anderson Atlas is an author and illustrator in Arizona

Inspired by crowded malls, streams hidden by giant boulders, patches of moss, charred forests, and distant mountain ranges, Anderson’s goal is to catch the lost dreams and carry them from the shadows of forgotten time.

The Devil in the Swarm Illustrations begin

The trek through the canyons and valleys of authorship is rife with challenges, disappointments and successes much like trying that new salmon dish at the local foodie joint. Sometimes you love the flavor combos, other times you want to thrash and spit and moan about returning food and making a scene. But I push on because I love telling stories and illustrating them. So onward!
First, thank you to everyone that beta read Dark Swarm (now titled The Devil in the Swarm). I’m working with an agent on changes and updates. In the meantime, there have been some changes. I’ll let anyone read the new version if you want, just email me at

Below are some of the new illustrations! Enjoy
