Dark Tower companion pieces by Michael Whelan based on the first line of Stephen King’s The Gunslinger:  The Man in Black fled across the desert and the Gunslinger followed.

THE GUNSLINGER: THE MAN IN BLACK (2005)

Oil on Canvas - 25” x 40”

Ever since Michael Whelan read that first line of the first book, he was waiting for the opportunity to paint it. The overcolored sky has a hallucinatory quality which is evocative of the dreamlike feeling of the story. (Michael also confessed that he wore a similar robe for much of the time he was painting this scene.)

THE GUNSLINGER FOLLOWED (2005)

Oil on Canvas - 25” x 40”

The second half of the first line in the first book. The 2 characters couldn’t be in the same painting because it’s not until they are out of the desert that they come within sight of each other, so he split the sentence into 2 paintings. Michael has said that this is the closest to what he thinks Roland looks like - dogged, grim, with an indomitable sense of mission.
