stovebolts

Since they just made it official I figured I could share the album sleeve for The Stovebolts‘ upcoming album Over the Limit. The artwork was created by Loud Comix‘ creator Jamie Vayda, and I was asked to do the coloring. It turned out pretty cool I think!

Out soon, so make sure to check ‘em out on Facebook here and visit Blahll!! Records here.

Merchandise!

September 8, 2014

Well, I for one felt like Mel Brooks‘ character Yoghurt in Spaceballs when I announced the addition of coffee mugs, wall clocks and even rugs (!!!) on Society 6 this past weekend (you’ve joined me on Facebook, right?). That’s where the real money is! Too bad my lawyer told me a flame thrower most likely would be seen as “selling lethal weapons without a permit” and he wouldn’t hear any of how much the kids love it. Oh well. Check it out here.

Speaking of which: This is my latest work and I’m gonna add it as soon as I have a title for it. It’s funny, maybe I’m just tired focusing so much energy on other things right now, but I can’t come up a damn thing! So far I’ve got Radiation King (’cause the skull initially had a crown), Radiant Golden Skull Thingy With Exposed Brain and Radiant Golden Skull Thingy With Open Head, which are, ahem, less than optimal to say the least.

Too Much Monkey Business

You drive me ape...

You drive me ape…

Take your stinking paws off me, you damn dirty ape! Well, this past couple of weeks have been quite hectic working on two separate physical Videogram releases (not to mention starting a blog for said musical project), so it felt pretty good to just ease back when time permitted to create some artwork.

Go bananas over Ape Shall Kill Ape, a twist on the “golden rule” of the 1968 sci-fi cult classic Planet of the Apes starring Charlton Heston. This one turned out pretty cool and I am very satisfied having finally nailed that almost-toxic neon green! Available via Society 6, you can get yours in a variation of sizes and formats here.

2077: Raiders of the Apocalypse

June 24, 2014

VideogramWEBSLEEVE

Here we go: Yesterday saw the “unveiling” of the cover art for the coming Videogram mix. Created by Bulgarian artist Mike Daskalov, it’s kinda reminiscent of Vestron Video‘s logo complete with the blurriness that came with VHS. The feedback has been great so far and James that runs the Italian Horror Week was thrilled to see it.

More unleashed VHS-influenced goodies is the track 2077: Raiders of the Apocalypse. Inspired by the post-apocalyptic genre movies of the 1980s – Equalizer 3000, Battletruck and Endgame just to mention a few – I’m pretty satisfied with how this one came out. Nice, dirge-y backbeat with some pretty cool synth sounds. Check it out on SoundCloud.

EDIT: In order to make things less confusing, I made the decision that future horror OST-influenced material will be released under the Videogram moniker ’cause, frankly, Call Me Greenhorn is just too damn weird a name and doesn’t really fit. Got a Facebook page up and running and I keep adding Bandcamp page etc. in the near future. Check it out here.

Well, I haven’t had this confirmed yet, but I did create posters for both Electric Frankenstein and The Kung Fu Killers during the time period, and if nothing else I can plug a pretty damn cool book release.

Son of Electric Frankenstein: More High Energy Punk Rock & Roll Poster & Record Art is the second big book of amazing Poster and Record Cover art, showing Electric Frankenstein’s second decade of artwork collected from where the first book, published by Dark Horse Books, left off. 

Delivering more great art and artists from the world of Low Brow, Underground, Kustom Kulture, Monster Art, it features more monstrous works from the who’s-who of poster legends Peter Bagge, John Pound, Johnny Ace, Coop, Art ChantryDirty Donny Gillies, Derek Hess, Alan Forbes, and more…!

Roughly 11 x 8.5 x 0.4 inches with 164 pages in glorious full color, the book cost $35.36. Get it at http://www.amazon.com/Son-Electric-Frankenstein-Energy-Poster/dp/1482686481

EDIT: I’ve had it confirmed by Sal Canzonieri himself that I indeed have my work featured in this book.

Well, new week and a new Japanese-inspired design. I wasn’t planning on making Ka-Boom! official as early in the week as today, but I received an email from Society 6 informing me that artist’s promotion was available, so starting today (and lasting up until Sunday the 9th) people buying my stuff receives free shipping and something called “array off” (???) using the link below.

Frankly, even though I write and speak English fluently to the point I am considered to be bilingual I never heard the phrase before, and googling it just gave me a bunch of results focusing on PHP. Whatever it is you’ll get it by clicking http://society6.com/SellergrenDesign?promo=f170d3 so check it out. While on the subject:

Ghoul School

Ever done anything by sheer accident? I for one truly believe in serendipity, and if you’ve even read the slightest bit of C.G. Jung you know what I’m talking about, but sometimes it even surprises a true believer. Nothing wrong with a good work ethic or brainstorming, but letting your subconscious take control usually creates more interesting results. It only takes time and patience.

Anyway, sitting down to do something as mundane as just creating a profile pic for my Facebook page – my digital camera works fine but some French jerk rummaged my bag and stole the USB cable while I was on tour I can’t upload any photos – I kinda came up with this concept. The initial sketch turned out pretty good so I figured I’d just go for it. Check out my Lucio Fulci tribute Matul High School Class of 1979.

Available via my Society 6 here and please do join me at www.facebook.com/SellergrenDesign for more imagery. While on the subject of tributes to Zombi 2 aka Zombie Flesh-Eaters:
