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.

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:

Post #650: Summing up 2013

December 31, 2013

Oh jeez, has it been a whole year already? Well, 2013 sure flew by fast I can tell you and I can’t say I remember that much on account of pretty much working my ass off for these past 52 weeks. In fact I once again had to go through the blog in order to check up on what happened and when because it’s all kind of a blur to me. So here we go:

copyright Sellergren Design 2011!January saw the release of Germany-based CRKO #3/4, which I made one of the covers for. Mid-through the month I finally got PropellerheadsReason 6.5 and music-wise things were never quite the same. The rough mix of In Space, originally slated for my first full length album, somehow turned into a 7-song EP released towards the end of the month. The Adventures of Superseven and Sandra West was released in a mammoth 5 DVD box collecting their initial 28 episodes plus bonus goodies like The Norliss TapesGroovy video. My work for the series earned both me and The Norliss Tapes our own pages on IMDB.com.

February saw the release of Sal Canzonieri‘s book Electric Frankenstein, compiling posters and record sleeves made for them during the period of  June 2005 to December 2013, but I’ve still to receive any confirmation that my contributions are in it. Check out on Amazon.com.

March saw the initial demos for my faux-OST L’Isola die Morti Viventi being created, starting out with A Modest Tribute to Fabio Frizzi. Meanwhile I finished up most of the tracks for the Adventures of Superseven and Sandra West soundtrack album and released the doomsday-dub Armageddon Dub, with a b-side featuring some drumming courtesy The Jimmy C.

squawkyApril kicked off with the release of the super-silly EP Squawky – featuring one of my personal fave b-sides The Name is West. A teaser-taste freebie of the coming soundtrack album was released and the They Call Me Superseven OST was released mid-month. The web series ran a successful campaign on Kickstarter, generating funds for the third season. UK label Dead by Mono‘s third installment of No Way Out! saw the physical debut of The Norliss Tapes with the track A Trip to the Moon. Me and UK photographer Robert Boud crossed paths resulting in some pretty cool collaborations. The end of the month saw the release of Call Me Greenhorn’s new-wave-ish Chasing the Dawn EP, originally slated for inclusion in an Australia-produced feature, but somehow that fell through. The poster I created to commemorate the launch of The Bigfoot Diaries live radio show was released in a limited edition.

May saw the release of Robert Boud’s video for Armageddon Dub, more dub sounds as The Titan Was Deemed Unsinkable was posted on SoundCloud, more videos as Robert Griffith‘s Here Comes Gorbot was made official and The Harvester appeared on SoundCloud, slated for an EP that I totally forgot about. The Jimmy C released the eight-track EP The Man Who Never Dies featuring three mixes I did and the month ended with the release of the CMGH2 album, aka The Abandoned Project.

June kicked off with a teaser taste from my stoner project Ursa Major, followed by The Hit ‘In Sounds’ of Today’s Outside Crowd album and I chipped in some $$$ on Kickstarter for James R. Petix and Sarah Babila‘s documentary It Came From Detroit.

July had me creating some merchandise designs for Belgium’s own Captain Catastrophy, I released the I’m Normal! cloudcast on MixCloud, released the “summer bonus” EP L’amour en Apesanteur and started my second side project Get Carpenter – I gotta admit I just love that name!

August saw me launching my page on Society 6, kicking off with the August 18, 1973 series honoring Tobe Hooper‘s horror classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. My stoner side project Ursa Major debuted with its 18-minute two-track Like Leaves and the end of the month saw the release of my faux-OST L’Isola die Morti Viventi.

September saw the launch of greenhorndub.bandcamp.com where I added the four-track The Titan Was Deemed Unsinkable EP after things turned out less-than-optimal over at dubmusic.com. The same month Pink Hulk EP followed. The John-Carpenter-meets-King-Tubby track Cutthroats at Midnight was finished and I began work on a S/T EP. The end of the month saw the release of the Halloween-themed The Ghost of Lee Van Cleef EP and Robert Boud’s video The Modern Day Holocaust.

In October I chipped in more of my hard-earned cash to support Tal Zimerman‘s project Why Horror? on Kickstarter, a documentary on the whys behind this film genre, and I even had a chance to do an interview with the guy for Swedish Gore Film Society. Towards the end of the month my second Haunted House of Horrors cloudcast was released in time for Halloween.

November saw me creating some artwork for U.S.-based true crime magazine Serial Killer Magazine and the end of the month saw the release of the Cutthroats at Midnight EP.

Finally, December saw the launch of Jamie Vayda‘s Loud Comix #2 – featuring a sleeve by yours truly – the release of the It Came From Detroit documentary – check it out! – and some videos I edited with a new freebie video editing software: Battle è in Arrivo, In Orbit, Invasion of the Dead and Voodoo Rhythm/A Feast on Flesh.

Yikes! How’s that for a list? Gee, no wonder I’m tired. But then again, I am quite enjoying myself and hopefully people out there enjoy what I create as well. Got more cool things happening in 2014 and I’d appreciate you joining me to check ‘em out. ‘Til then, Happy New Year!
