Im BACK! 1-7-20
It's been a while! The past few years have been quite busy (to say the least!) Life gives and life takes; but you have to press on. I know it's been nearly 4 years since I've updated any new artwork to the site, but I have been working on new stuff slightly here and there. All of that will be put on here soon! A few new paintings, a LOT of ACEOs, and a couple illustrations. I hope you come back soon to check it out!

I am doing an EXTREMELY LIMITED run of prints of this piece.
And I mean LIMITED!!! Only 13 prints will be made, signed, and numbered. Then, THAT'S IT!
There are only 13 PRINTS!
Each print will be individually signed and numbered.
It measures 11" x 17" and comes fully framed.
Price is $150.00
Shipping and handling $16.00
When they are gone. They are gone.
TO ORDER YOURS:
NO LONGER AVAILABLE
Now until 11-21-12
I know it's been a long time since I've posted anything on here... But I've been mecha-busy dammit! Trying to get all of the art and the final draft completed, published and printed. Well, I'm realistic and I don't think I will get it available for purchase by my birthday, but so what? I've gotten so much done this year, I'm really confident I can have it completed at all!
So, here's where some fun comes in.
You have until 11-21-12 to submit your entry to:
I know there are a lot of you folks out there are super creative and artistically inclined. So, I’m holding a contest for those of you out there that share my love/fear of zombies. And the prize is the ultimate display of your interest and talent in the matter.
What I’m asking for is for you to do your worst (best) zombie make-up effects of you or on a model. Submit your pictures to the email on this website (posted above) and I will select the best zombie faces to appear on the cover of my book!
1. Originality here, no Fulci’s Zombie or machete head (Dawn of the Dead) allowed. If you want to do something inspired by something like that; that is fine. But, do your own take on the idea.
2. Pictures must be pretty damn good resolution. And a bust shot of you or your model from rib cage to top of head and shoulders. (A portrait shot if you will).
3. Rotted. However rotted you want to be. A week since bit or a year. Just looking for a bit more than black and white grease paint here. But, if you can creep me out using just that; then by all means, go for it!
4. Your name and the name of your model. So, I can give appropriate credits to parties involved in the “Special Thanks” in the end of the book
5. RUN WILD WITH IMAGINATION!
1. The artists and models will have their names in the “Special Thanks” of the book at the end, (as previously mentioned) So, spell your names right when you submit!
2. I will select THREE to FIVE winners that will have their face/work appear on the cover of the book (In a painting form) as I will paint your faces on the cover!
3. The winners (artist and model) will receive a signed copy of the novel when it is eventually published and printed.
Terms and Conditions:
No Nudity. (It’s the cover after all) But, if you want to send those pictures anyway. They won’t win. All pictures submitted will become property of ecp-art.com but all credit and names will be given to those who did the work. I’m not here to scam anyone. I just want to get more folks involved!

SECOND ANNUAL OSHKOSH ZOMBIE WALK
September 4th, 2010
It's back!!! Show up in your best zombie make-up and costume to roam downtown Oshkosh, WI! The Horde will gather at 6:30 pm in the alley behind House Of Heroes Comics (407 N. Main St.). Contests and raffles will be held at the Official Zombie Walk After Party at the Time Community Theater from 8-11 pm. All Proceeds raised do to support the theater. Get creative and bloody! All ages Welcome!
I'll be donating a number of prizes for those raffles and contests! Food, Drink, Beer, and more was donated and (as previously mentioned) all proceeds go to the theater. The money goes to repair it as well as finance great things like "Friday Fright Nights" where they obtain and show show old horror classics on the big screen for FREE! (August 27th is "Night of the Living Dead"!) Come on out! It's a great time and and makes for future great times as well!
August 20th- and 3 weeks after that!
If you haven't heard about piranha 3D copy and paste this to check out the HD trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SkF5VMRJGek
As you may have heard. It was rejected from San Diego Comic Con for being "too wild" so they chose a different venue to unveil a 9 minute clip. It has also been made public that a lot of Regal and Marcus cinemas will NOT be showing the film.
The Fond du Lac Theater (Located at 1131 W Scott St., Fond du Lac, WI) however, is an independently owned and operated theater. They've showed Boondock Saints 2, The Road, and Paranormal Activity, when no one else would touch them.
Recently obtaining the 3D technology (like I said, independently owned...) I wrote them a number of emails, organized a petition and we went back and forth via email. The FDL Theater is getting it! And despite it not getting released until August 27th-- It will be showing a full week before the release and 2 additional weeks after that!!! So come on out and check out a movie that no one wants you to see!
oshkoshhorror.com and I conducted an interview for their "Bits and Pieces" segment. Check it out here!
