When There's No More Room In Hell...The (Walking) Dead Will Walk The Earth

I sure got sucked in by this Robert Kirkman penned series upon being introduced to the comic books a few years ago. I had always wanted to paint a rendition of the books lead protagonist and gloomy anti-hero, Rick here it is. Since the painting was inspired by the comic and not the T.V. show I decided to mock up the cover like it was an issue in the series.

The Raven...Nevermore.

Cover painting for a fictional Edgar Allan Poe volume. The original American master of the macabre!

The Beyond

Poster painted and designed for the maestro Lucio Fulci's masterpiece THE BEYOND. A creepy classic that never ceases to be a fan favorite among gore-hounds and videophiles the world over.

H.P. Lovecraft

 A portrait of Howard Philips Lovecraft I did in a simplified style. Influenced by German expressionism and the 1930's I suppose.

Perversion...what's in a name?

Album cover for PERVERSION. This band reeks of the cryptic stench of 80's South American black metal, influence of SARCOFAGO and VULCANO is dually noted. This was released as a split 7" ep with Detroit's ANGUISH. Here's some pic's of the band I took as well.

Crawl To Nothing

Album cover for Appleton, Wisconsin punk stalwarts Choose Your Poison. These fine folks have been around working their asses off to support the DIY punk and metal scenes in the Mid-West for years and tour all the time around the country. Check em out and pick up a record when they come to your town if you'll be loads of fun! Slightly different design work on the logo's and text done by myself then what was actually printed on the covers...I prefer it my way...

The Ultimate Roid Rage...Starting a Blog!?

So, yes, I've finally went ahead and made a blog. After many years of being asked "You've got a blog, right?" and "Your on facebook, right?" and then being met with blank stares of confusion when I have to tell people I have neither, I've finally caved and decided to make this here blog. I suppose I felt it was the lesser of two evils. Ha, Ha screw you Zuckerberg! You haven't defeated me yet! Much like my childhood vow never to watch the James Cameron film "Titanic" (in my young teen mind the director of such films as Terminator 1 & 2, Aliens, and Pirahna 2: The Spawning doing a melodrama about some old-ass ship was blasphemy...still is) my vow never to have a facebook is still in tact...for now. So without further ado, what better way to start this off then with an Ultimate Warrior spoof and a goof. You can download this game now for yer I-phone, Blackberry, Droid or other 4G mobile smart 3-D app cellular device...for more info check out my MySpace page...All images on here are created by myself (unless for some reason they're not and then that will be my use of the Cinco Toys logo in this, thanks Timon Deric)...more exciting images of horror and weirdness coming verrryyyy soon..
