About Steve Parke

Steve Parke is an award-winning illustrator, designer, and photographer. He worked for Prince for 13 years as his in-house art director at Paisley Park—doing everything from designing album covers and hand painting guitars to enlisting every spare pair of hands to melt candles for an impromptu music video. He’s also worked with David Bowie, Bon Jovi, Bob Dylan, AC/DC, Marcus Miller, and the Grateful Dead, and has long collaborated with Sheila E., The Family/deluxe, Victor Wooten, and Stanley Clarke, among others, both as a photographer and a designer of numerous album covers and promotional materials and merchandise.

His work for the NBC Heroes soundtracks featured photos and illustrations of Wendy and Lisa, Iggy Pop, Wilco, and other musicians. He’s also collaborated on various photographic novels and children’s books, including me, Paparazzi, and In the Shadow of Edgar Allan Poe for DC/Vertigo Comics and Catie  and Josephine for Houghton Mifflin. He’s also done retouch and composite work for DVD packaging including “The Comeback,” “The Sopranos,” “Six Feet Under,” “Rome,” and “30 Rock.” Speaking of television… he also once played a dead drug dealer on Homicide: Life on the Street. His fine art photography has hung in the Baltimore Museum of Art, the American Visionary Art Museum, the Eduard Planting Gallery in Amsterdam, Proud Galleries in London, and the Mouche Gallery in Beverly Hills, Key West.

He is currently a photographer and photo editor for Faerie Magazine, which the New York Times called “what would happen if Edmund Spenser’s The Faerie Queene and Martha Stewart Living had a magazine baby.” He’s also working on a book photo project for Simon & Schuster written by Alice Hoffman.
