[caption id="attachment_2103" align="aligncenter" width="450"] Los Angeles Haunted Hayride Poster Artwork[/caption]   For 2016 we created a unique ad campaign for Los Angeles Haunted Hayride. The image was of a woman's back with a pentagram carved into it (see above).  The image was created in the winter/spring of 2016 and unleashed on the public around May. After that the image was plastered all over Los Angeles including a huge wallscape on Sunset Blvd!  Apparently some creatives in Hollywood were inspired by the campaign because I've seen a couple images in the last month that remind me of the work.  The first is the most obvious one, for a horror film called Siren...

About 2 years ago one of my clients needed a piece of art for a Valentine's weekend promotion. I shot some cool photos of a bloody heart in a box of candy and that became their art for the show. This year they are doing it again so I thought I'd take a stab at making a video to go with the artwork just to see what I could come up with. So one evening I took my camera, some Valentine's Day trappings, such as candy, bubbly, love letters, and the like to a nice run down location I had access to. I was inspired by the opening of American Horror Story and even mimicked their flashlight in the dark effect for the very beginning of the short. I'm very happy with the result and It does tell a pretty dark story in less than...

So the first week of September I entered a contest for fans of the long gone Millennium TV series presented by the great website BacktoFrankBlack.com. The entries were tasked with creating a poster for a proposed Millennium movie. The series was one of the biggest catalysts for my becoming a graphic designer so I know that no matter how busy I was I had to enter this contest! So I set aside one evening the day before the deadline to make up some poster ideas. The first was a minimalist design featuring the taglines from the show. It was meant to be a "teaser" poster and doing it in a minamalist design seemed like a cool idea since it was something I had not done previous. The second poster was meant to pay homage to the style of the first season of the...

Millennium ran from 1996 to 1999 on Fox and it had a big impact on me and where I am today.  The series was created by Chris Carter who of course also created The X-Files, it starred Lance Henriksen as Frank Black, a retired FBI profiler who now worked for a shadowy consulting firm call the Millennium group. The show dealt with the darkest of subject matter, rape, serial murder, cults, etc. The look of Millennium was even darker. It was always raining, dark, and almost devoid of any color. However the shining yellow bright beacon of the series was the "Yellow House" where Frank lived with his Wife and little girl, Jordan. The show went through very radical changes from year to year due to Chris Carter being too busy with the X-Files movie and series to keep a watchful eye on what MillenniuM was doing. Year 2 saw lots...
