What’s the point of grabbing all that swag at Comic-Con if I’m never going to look at it again? So, in an effort to expand my horizons I’ve decided to dive into the mounds of promotional materials thrown my way at this last years con and do a little investigating, and just my luck the first thing I grab up is sick, twisted, dark and morbid. In other words, awesome.
So, I got this promotional card for Mad Creator Productions and decided to visit their very cool site. Mad Creator Productions is the website of artist and film maker Gris Grimly. According to the FAQ page on the site, Grimly has been a published illustrator since 2000 and has since created a massive portfolio of art and has illustrated several children’s books, one written by Neil Gaiman. His illustrative style is dark, strange, and definitely on the macabre side of things, but that’s what makes it so good. It’s like a good slice of Halloween when ever you want it.
Grimly is also a budding film maker and you can find a link to a film he made on Mad Creator Productions. I hope it’s okay (’cause I’m too lazy to ask for permission) but below I’m posting a short promo video for his film, Cannibal Flesh Riot.
Not too bad, ‘neh? Anyways, after spending some time at Mad Creator Productions I’d recommend it to all my fellow El Moochadores out there. It looks like a great place to buy fun and cool t-shirts, prints, and books.
Well, that be it for now kids, I’m off to roam the vast hills and valleys (free porn) of the internet. Tomorrow, I’ll try and post s’more about what exists in the bowls of my swag bag.
