31 Nightmares 2017: The 2nd

Zombies have been such a massive force in our pop culture over the last thirty years or so, we see them everywhere. Everything from our favorite video games and television shows, to movies, merchandise, and more, has been given the zombie treatment.

There is a man that can largely be credited with setting up this genre and creating a new lane for it. That man is none other than Mr. George A. Romero, and sadly we lost him earlier this July. Although that loss has surely been felt, Mr. Romero’s impact on the horror genre is undeniable, and isn’t going anywhere.

My “Farmhouse” piece was inspired by George A. Romero’s, Night of the Living Dead

With hit shows like The Walking Dead now running mainstream entertainment that has been made loud and clear. There are countless games, most notably, Resident Evil,  along with more current like Minecraft, and Killing Floor, that have all touched on the now vastly popular sub-genre.

I don’t see this genre fading despite seeing some complaints over the years that it’s been overdone. Not when there are still new creations that keep pumping on out and continue to do well.

Some of the screenshots used in this installment of 31Nightmares feature zombies in the game Minecraft. This game is still going strong well into 2017.

This week we’ll be touching on many other Master’s of Horror and their influences.

Sleepy Sundays: Glowstick Gardens

We made it to 2016, loves! Happy New Year!

This week’s Sleepy Sundays post was inspired by the neon lights and bright colors of the 1980’s. I’ve been doing research on 80’s dance clubs for an art/film project and it’s been spilling over into my designs. Truth be told, I always wanted a neon sign in my apartment like Selena Kyle.
