                                                          Svlabard graphic novel

Over the last year I have been working with Seth Resnik,a very gifted screenwriter who has written a graphic novel about a uniquely dark futuristic world. The story is a scifi adventure with many contemporary parallels about social and environmental issues. The book is about the rise and fall of a hero and the unusual allies that he meets on his adventure.
This fantastic world will be a graphic novel that will be a digitally narrative experience with many layers.
A kickstarter campaign will be needed to fund the project and we hope to have the support to bring you a truely unique adventure!
You can read an article about "Slavard" in issue 94 of Imaginefx.

It's been a long time coming.Many changes over the last few months have taken place and all for the better!
Dean Mitchell the series creator and myself have been gearing up for the series launch and with a brand new penciller onboard(to be announced soon!) it has been a pleasure to paint .
We are more excited than ever for the future of Killer B*****s!
Partnering with Hound comics has been a win win situation for us.The company has allowed us the time to bring you the best we can for the coming year. We are in good company,passionate people who are proactive in wanting to bring their A-game.
So here we are- issue 1 on sale on the 23rd and the beginning of a story that truely is more than another zombie tale.
To have some positive reviews back on the comic before its launch has given us a good understanding of what's working.

The comic has many genres at play-mainly horror,scifi and survival adventure.
Here is a preview of issue 1-
But dont just take my word for it.It's out soon for you to make your own minds up! You can let us know what you think here- or tweet us here- @KBoftheZH

                                        Comicbooked for the rest of my life

Throughout my work I have always tried to create sool looking imagery. Images to inspire or at least to entertain, But I have a yearning(is that how you spell it?) to delve deeper,to tell stories. Because if a picture is worth a thousand words then surely a page of pictures is worth thousands more!Right?!
SO over the next year I will be focusing in on storytelling with pictures.That's right -Comic books.
They are my first love and what got me into art.
So no better way to kickstart(no pun intended!) my focus than an intervew!
Thanks to Adam Cheal for a great interview,very much appreciated!
p.s. get well Stan we are thinking of you!

                                                 The tales of Elthric and Veldran

I come from a creative family.Both my father and brother Karl write.And write well. Me I'm more of a visual guy.
But to write and create to me seems harder.Why? Well you have to get someone to sit down and invest time in your work to get the most out of it.And in today's fast food world of a thousand funny gifs and "like" this or "fav" that, we have a steady stream of disposable stimulation.
It's time to slow down! Because you get out what you put in! Invest a little bit of time and look for those hidden gems of true inspiration!
My father's fantasy book is posted monthly at I happen to love my father's writing.Am I biased? I try not to be!
But here's the cool thing in today's world of self- promotion! You can try his work here - and try it for free! Remember free doesn't always mean sub par. It just means the right person hasn't discovered it yet.
If you don't like it, try something else by someone else! But slow down and try. You may find a few hidden gems!
And now here's some self-promoting! Here's a sculpt I created for artwork to go with the story! Easy right!

                                                            Horror film work

I am currently working on conceptual work on a horror film.
Very excited as my love of the horror genre along with comic books is what has fueled my path into art. There's nothing like going to a horror film and jumping,or being creeped out! And with Halloween coming up I'm getting in a ghoulish mood!
NDA's stop me from showing much but this image is so vague it is ok. More an exploration of surreal,subversive imagery to get across mood. The creature/mutant/22 eyed monster(sorry cant say) I am working on is fun to create. Once I got the all clear I will divulge more information.
You can keep up with my work and general rantings on twitter @MarkBeer4
