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!

Santa Claws

Well, ’tis the season to be, uh, scary I guess and I figured I’ll add one more art print to my page on Society 6 before taking these next couple of days off. So here we go with Santa Claws, adding a bit of fear to your holiday cheer (in my mind I totally read that in the Cryptkeeper voice). As always available as both art print and stretched canvas with sizes ranging from 8″ x 10″ up to 28″ x 36″. Get yours here.

Speaking of fear, when it comes to Christmas-themed horrors nothing beats Bob Clark‘s 1974 slasher Black Christmas. A bit slow tempoed, yes, and gorehounds would probably be disappointed by the somewhat low kill count, but when it comes to the the perpetrator’s sheer level of lunacy Jason Voorhees or Freddy Krueger got nothing on this one. Highly recommended! Check out the trailer below. Merry Christmas!

Mindblowing

December 13, 2013

Here we go: Man, I almost feel lazy for the lack of imagery posted on my Society 6 lately. But there’s a damn good reason involving Call Me Greenhorn and some pretty amazing news, although I’m really not allowed to get into that right now. Sorry to leave you hanging on that one, but believe me, you’re gonna hear about it when it’s official.

So without further ado, here’s the first artwork for December: Mindblowing. I actually started out with the b&w version – yes, I am aware that it’s black, white and red – intent of making a full color print, but noticed that once I started working in colors, highlights and shadows the visual oomph! of it just kinda petered out. So, I went back to the basics and just added a yellow to the color version which gives it a nice kinda warning sign feel.

Available as always via my Society 6 here, and do join me on Facebook here. Cheers!

Loud Comix issue 2 preview

I’m stoked as hell to announce that Jamie Vayda just made some choice panels from the coming second issue of Loud Comix official on his Facebook page! Wrapped in a sleeve by yours truly, the issue offers stories by Sal Canzonieri (of Electric Frankenstein fame), Darin MartinezRest Stop of the Dead, and Erika Lane‘s hilariously looking Lester the Porn Fairy (!!!) among others. Check it out here.

Both Jamie and the comic book’s been getting lots of positive feedback lately (well deserved if you ask me!) as he’s not only bringing back the classic, old school underground comic but also doing a damn fine job doing it. After the first, self-published issue the comic was picked up by Birdcage Bottom Books and now they’ll be hauled off to New York to represent at the Society of Illustrators‘ prestigious Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art (cleverly abbreviated MoCCA.)

The issue will be out this month, and you can can get it via Birdcage Bottom Books here. Check it out!
