The X-Files created by Chris Carter
The artwork featured in this book was curated by IDW Limited.
Each piece was commissioned for one of our rare, original art offerings
and featured artists chosen for their talent and love of The X-Files.
The original sketch cards ultimately found homes with some
very happy collectors. We are excited to share some of our favorite
pieces with you before they end up as “classified information.”

ask the artist : DAN HARDING
Did you prefer “Monster of the Week” or
Mytharc episodes?
Definitely “Monster of the Week.”
Who was your favorite character to draw?
The Flukeman. All the detail in that make-up job is so
impressive, and it made drawing him a blast.
What mediums did you use for your cards?
Marker and colored pencil.
Tell us a little about your process.
I definitely wanted to use photo reference to keep
everything as close to the show as possible. I tried to
find the coolest images or most dramatic and sketch
those onto the cards. I’d then get everything lined and
blocked in with marker, and after that I get the color
in there. Usually quite a few layers of colored pencil to
get the look just right, or at least as close as possible.
That’s about it.
ask the artist : MIRAN KIM
Are you a big The X-Files fan?
Yes, of course. I love paranormal life.
Did you prefer “Monster of the Week” or
Mytharc episodes?
Do you have a favorite episode of the show
in general?
I have many I love, but hard to remember a specific
one. I enjoyed watching “Anasazi” and “Space.”
Are you a Skeptic or Believer?
Maybe a Believer.
Who was your favorite character to draw?
The agents.
Tell us a little about your process.
After carefully penciling details of the image, I paint
with 00 size brushes to get the likeness with acrylic
paint. I use acrylic like watercolor: thin and transparent.
I build up the thickness of the paint as I finish the cards.
