Here’s the new video by The Creepshow for the track “Hellbound”. Yes, that is a Rue Morgue t-shirt you see on keyboardist Ginty and no, we didn’t have to slip him a shot of Jager to wear it. Recorded and edited by Toronto photographer Ashlea Wessel, the video captures the band’s explosive live show (recently winning Edge 102′s FU award for “best live act”). The Creepshow are currently playing some shows through Europe in support of “They All Fall Down”, distributed on Stomp Records in Canada and HellCat Records in the US.
Art lovers in and around Montreal are in for a Halloween treat. Yves Laroche art gallery is hosting what they call Phantasmogoria, which exhibits new work by Chet Zar, and Travis Louie, who both contributed to our Nightmare Gallery in issue 100.
Dave Alexander sent this around and I just had to share it. Check out these zombified movie posters by wonder artist Matt Busch. Instead of using PhotoShop skulduggery, Matt has painstakingly recreated each poster with traditional methods proving the dead really don’t sleep!
Artist Chet Zar has a fiend-tastic new print for sale. Entitled “Night” This special collectors edition is signed and numbered by the artist and would make a great gift to your recently deceased.
Printed on velvet fine art paper, it’s a limited edition of 100.
Artist Aunia Kahn held an online open call to artists everywhere last year for the Lowbrow Taro Art Show. Only 23 artist would be selected to represent the 22 cards in a Major Arcana tarot deck (plus the card back). The exhibit starts tonight, October 1st and closes on Halloween. If you’re in the L.A. area, the show opens at the La Luz de Jesus gallery and I highly recommend checking it out. The gallery and store itself is a must see. Luckily for those of us who can’t attend, here are is a link to the online gallery. There are some truly fantastic selections by Chet Zar (The Devil), Chris Mars (The Hierophant), Kris Kuksi (The Emperor), Laurie Lipton (Death), Christopher Ulrich (The Magician) and many others. The artists creations will also appear in a forthcoming hard cover coffee table book and of course the project wouldn’t be complete until an actual tarot deck, also in production.
Hold onto those eyeballs, the good dudes at Royal Flush Magazine have given Rue Morgue an exclusive sneak peek of their cover for issue 7, hitting stands October 15. Artist Ed Repka provided the deadly illustration of Mr. Rob Zombie, a fitting tribute to classic horror movies. This cover will also be available as a lenticular-hologram, giving it a 3D effect! I’ve been a regular contributor of the mighty Royal Flush for the past few years and have watched the magazine grow from the “little publication that could” into an international sensation. Sounds kind of familiar, don’t it? Josh Bernstein (Head Honcho) and Steve Chanks (Right Hand Man) have returned with another tome of awesomeness and this time I’m not the only mortician from the Morgue who’s contributing!
Our pal and contributor to Rue Morgue’s Nightmare Gallery (issue 100), Jason Edmiston is the featured artist for August on one of our favourite art blogs Creep Machine. Jason’s stunning new print Monster Mash (pictured) just about blew the eyeballs out of my skull. Check out the interview here!
Sweet mother slug, look at that poster! Illustrator and RM Nightmare Gallery contributor Jason Edmiston was commissioned by Fright Rags to commemorate their very special screening of Fred Dekker’s ’80s horror classics Monster Squad and Night of the Creeps. Screening Saturday July 17, at Rochester’s Dryden Theatre, creator Fred Dekker and Tom Atkins will both be in attending to talk about the making of the films. RM’s Justin Erickson and I will be heading down to check out the screenings and hang out with the folks at Fright Rags central for the day.
Well known for their work in gray scale, miniature artist Jason D’Aquino and tattoo guru and gallery owner Paul Booth have teamed up to present a gallery show of black and gray artwork featuring some of the worlds top artist and illustrators. Art fanatics can expect to see works by Chet Zar, Ron English, The Pizz, Chris Marrs, Tara McPherson, Robert Williams (one of the first pioneer’s behind the “lowbrow” art movement and founder of Juxtapoz Magazine) and a ton more. The press release boasts “This is show will be an opportunity for artists to reach within the darkest realms of their imaginations, and display their most raw and uncensored work to-date.”
