At the Edge: Art of the Fantastic

Thanks to my friend Thomas Kuebler, I've been invited to participate in a HUGE fantastic art collection at the Allentown Art Museum. I'm so thrilled and honored to be a part of this AMAZING collection of art from 1860 to the present.  Many legendary works of art will be in this 175 piece collection.  Art from H.R. Giger, Frank Frazetta, Hildebrant brothers, will be on display just to name a few... I still can't believe that my work will be among such big names in the art field! Click here for more info.

Zombie Training

Not long ago I met Simon Gregory, creator of a new magazine called Zombie Training. It's a super cool survival guide in the event of a Zombie outbreak. It has everything, even some interviews with cast from The Walking Dead! They also did an interview with me on my art. Like a lot of people, I've been on a Zombie kick lately, and it was a real pleasure trying to answer questions like, " What would be your number one weapon choice in a zombie epidemic"

You can see the Zombie training site here, and here is a link to get the 130 page magazine. Check it out!

STASIS comic gets new life!

A few years ago I finished a comic based on my animated short called STASIS. I took the sets, and puppets from the film, my camera and a little Photoshop skills to create it. Unfortunately, it never made it into the Diamond catalog for distribution. I did Comic Con and a few other shows getting some good exposure but had no real way to sell them, other than Etsy, until now.

Pulp Free publishing offers digital comics in the itunes store! They've created an ingenious free app that allows you to download their content of creator owned  comics! It's easy and user friendly. I reformatted the comic to fit on an iphone or ipad. Whats' great is that the the style of this comic totally lends itself to a digital format. Not to mention the cost to print just 1000 copies in traditional format is over $2000. Pulp free is, well nearly free in comparison!

I felt a little defeated after initially completing the first issue because of the cost to self publish, so the second issue fell by the way side. Now, with this new publishing format, the STASIS comic series has new life in my eyes and I'm back on creating issue #2!

Check out Pulp Free here, if you have a comic you'd like to publish. The first 100 publishers are FREE. STASIS and other comics will be available in the coming weeks in the itunes store, search under Pulp Free Publishing LLC.
