Welcome Zachary Bos, Graphic Designer, to the Concept Art Team!

The Mark Foster initiative on Facebook was really quite successful. Without it, how would we have got Gregg Stockdale, or our latest addition, Zachary Bos?

Zachary is a graphic designer, who will be doing re-designs of the Mark Foster art. DO NO WORRY, we will definitely be using Mark Foster's originals as well. But Zachary will be making some re-designs for a promotional series. Its just a fun experiment to see how the poster could have been done if it was taken in different directions.

First up, he photoshopped his way into this, a re-design I'm calling "The House."

I think its awesome. REMEMBER, WE'RE STILL USING MARK FOSTER'S ORIGINAL - but this too.

Mr. Bos believes that the geometrical pattern in the background is strong, but needs a little cleaning up. So he darkened them. Then, turning the house black-and-white, he went for a more esoteric mood then a 1930s Universal horror picture poster. The triangle is meant to unify the image.

He'll be doing a couple, each with a central figure from the Mark Foster art. Yay!

P.S. For those of you who are kind enough to visit this blog, know this - I am in contact with Michael Zigerlig, a Swiss artist, friend of director/producer/screenwriter Brian Yunza (H.P. Lovecraft's Necronomicon, Bride of Reanimator) and the late artist H.R. Giger (Necronomicon). He is the artist and adapter of H.P. Lovecraft's Call of Cthulhu - a graphic novel adaptation of the story. We're discussing him doing some concept art.
