World War Z Movie gets new writer

The movie is back on track!
Looks like Michael Carnahan will be rewriting the script for the upcoming World War Z movie. Although this sets the movie release back a bunch, I am really happy about this. I had read the early script from J. Michael Straczynski (which leaked on the internet) and I was displeased to say the least. It was missing some of the best stories in the book! Lets hope Carnahan puts them back in.

Romero names his newest film

"Survival of the Dead" is the name of Romero's newest zombie flick, which has gone unnamed for a few months now. Good title, if you ask me!

On a side note - become a fan of on facebook!

Dan Mumford. Nuff said.

This guys work is nothing short of fantastic. Hes based out of London, and is high on my list of kick-ass illustrators (along with R.M. Hanson)

Revenant Film Festival Official Poster

So one of the projects I have just recently completed was creating the official poster for the Revenant Film Festival!
My good man Geoff at Revenant Magazine hit me up a while back, and here is the monster we have created!

This project was a fuckin' blast to do, and I am pretty pleased with the way things came out. Below are a few process sketches and color-ups, and I wanted to work in an homage to Forrest J. Ackerman's Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine covers, so that was fun too. Anyway, if you can make it up to Seattle for this momentous, gory, brain-splattering festival of Undead Cinema, get info and tickets HERE! Thanks again to Geoff and everyone at Revenant for the great opportunity!

Initial rough sketch and color idea:

Sketch for final piece:

And this is what I had originally intended as the style, but when it was in process I knew it was just going to be too goddamn muddy and confusing, so I reworked the sketch and colored it up in a more graphic style for the final. I hate how this one looks, except for the blood and guts, they look alright. Too dark and confusing on the rest.

Hope it meets all undead standards.
