” I had to come all the way from the highway and byways of Tallahassee, Florida to MotorCity, Detroit to find my true love. If you gave me a million years to ponder, I would never have guessed that true romance and Detroit would ever go together. And til this day, the events that followed all still seems like a distant dream. But the dream was real and was to change our lives forever. I kept asking Clarence why our world seemed to be collapsing and things seemed to be getting so shitty. And he’d say, “that’s the way it goes, but don’t forget, it goes the other way too.” That’s the way romance is… Usually, that’s the way it goes, but every once in awhile, it goes the other way too.

So, i can finally reveal a project i’ve had in the words the last month or so!
I was contacted to do a painting for the remake of “Evil Dead”, directed by Fede Alvarez, to help promote the film at it’s SXSW premiere the other night! I would have given anything to be there to hand out posters and see the film early, but sadly, that kind of thing is out of my price range. The remake of “Evil Dead” is probably in my top three of most anticipated horror films, and it might have shot to the #1 position after all the positive press about the film that’s been reaching my ears. I was very excited to get to do a piece for the film, and i hope my painting lives up the insanity that i’m sure the film will contain.
Prints are available on my Etsy at 11 x 15 inches, on glossy high-quality card stock. Limited numbers for now!
Thanks for your time and interest!

“I used to think about one day, just not telling anyone, and going off to some random place. And I’d just… disappear. And they’d never see me again. Did you ever think about stuff like that?”
Sao Paulo based graphic design studio Dona Baronesa has created some err, shall we say—unique graphics for the CineMuBE independent film festival. The festival is hosted by the Brazilian Museum of Sculpture and aims to launch promising young directors, screenwriters and actors into their professional film careers.
To visually represent this idea, they’ve taken a few famous directors (Hitch, Woody, Scorsese) and impregnated them with film babies. They’ve brandished the slogan, “Get ready to be born” on each poster, reinforcing the idea even further. Check out the posters and how they’ve taken the message beyond two dimensions.
