Cell Count Trailer




Just read the blurb that compared this to Cabin Fever (which I loathed).  That is unfortunate, however, the trailer is compelling.

From the Archives: Environments


Backgrounds have never been my strong suite.  Every now and again I try to spend some extra time exploring environmental spaces to increase my proficiency.  Here we have a couple of sketches of some dark spaces.  I had it in my mind to do a series of pieces focused on moody and/or creepy environments.  The idea never really became more than these two sketches, but I feel like it informed some of the feeling of later pieces.

Here is the beginning of the story:

Zombie Bites New Abstract: Transformation Requires a Sacrifice


In the case of this piece, perhaps what is being sacrificed here is a point of view. An allowed releasing of perspective to expand to a greater understanding.  This also points to the necessary changes that all transformations require.  If one needs to live in water, one must grow gills and fins and if one is to live in a realm of fire, one must accommodate a certain level of continuous destruction.
