Colored the Hotline Miami art! Had a lot of fun with this one — pink and seafoam up the wazoo.

Sweet Injuries

Ashkan Honarvar portrays horrific injuries with whipped cream, ice cream, and other sweets.



2013 art summary. although I’m very happy with where my art is going aesthetically, I definitely didn’t make as much as I would have liked to. this year was very hard on my productivity

hopefully next year will be a far more productive one. also hopefully I’ll actually make more art with backgrounds



umm well I have no idea if anyone would want this, but! I made a redbubble account so I could stick it up as a shirt (even though undoubtedly the vibrant colors are lost some! printers can’t handle it extremely well)

here’s the link to the shirt, and here’s the link to get a print

I guess it’s a start! I’ll try to do things here and there that I can stick in these places



Docu-Horror movies from the last few years that are actually good!

I know people hate these movies but I love them, the good ones at least, it’s not really a trend as much as it is a style and for certain things it works a hell of a lot better for certain subjects. Instead of getting irrationally angry at all of them, we should just start promoting the good ones and ignoring the bad ones.

Bigfoot: The Lost Coast Tapes
This is one of several Bigfoot docu-horror films that have been been made in the past few years. This one has the advantage of being the first to have a wide release (WIllow Creek is on the way next). It’s typical in places but watching it unravel to a bizarre, though noticeable if you pay complete attention, conclusion is fascinating. There are also some effective fright scenes that are shockingly well maintained.

A documentary that follows two investigators trying to track down the beginnings of the New York legend of Cropsey, it has some great spooky moments though and it’s fascinating to see what they uncover. Definitely a left-of-field release.

Poughkeepsie Tapes
This one is notorious for not being available via DVD (even now!), it’s been around for years via download sites but it had its first premier on UK television a few months ago. It’s about a ton of tapes a serial killer recorded whilst carrying out his acts. There’s a weird cult-like fascination with the whole thing from those who haven’t seen it yet and it definitely lives up to the weird intrigue. It’s genuinely disturbing in places.

The Conspiracy
A mockumentary involving a group of people making a documentary about conspiracy theories in the modern world, their investigation, naturally,  ends up hitting upon places they really shouldn’t be looking. It’s far more of a thriller than a horror but it’s fantastic nonetheless, one of personal favourites of this year as well.

WNUF Halloween Special
I only just watched this a few days back and it’s incredible, it’s a fabricated Halloween TV special from 1987 about a seance that takes place on live TV (a nod to Ghostwatch) and it looks ridiculously authentic with the 80s TV style aesthetic, enough to make you question whether it’s actually real or not. The filmmakers even went out of their way to make commercials for the damn thing. It’s probably my actual favourite film of this year so far, to be honest.

This is a strange one, it’s about a group of people who are making a documentary about one of their friend’s camping for the first time, for a project for class and they end up being attacked by strange creatures. But, that’s only a part of it, at some point there’s a complete shift and it’s utterly insane.

The Tunnel
An Australian pseudo-documentary about the network of abandoned underground railway tunnels which were going to be used to extract water from, to help with the water shortage Sydney was going through at the time. However, the Government without warning abandoned the plan and didn’t tell anybody why, so a group of filmmakers set out to find out the reason, which they end up finding out and they wish they hadn’t. It’s really well put together with the mixture of found footage and documentary. It’s also notable for being spread via viral via torrents at the request of the filmmakers.

A modern docu-horror about aliens, finally! It focuses on a couple who go to stay at a rural ranch in Texas that is owned by one of their family members. They start experiencing weird things and start to unravel secrets said family member has been hiding through the years. First released this year and it’s really really eerie in places. A hell of a lot better than the more recent alien docu-horror Skinwalker Ranch.

Long Pigs
Not exactly well known, I wouldn’t have heard about it if it wasn’t for becoming friendly with the director. It’s about two young film-makers who are desperate for a separate to document, they end up stumbling upon Anthony McAllistar a cannibal serial killer who lets them document his lifestyle. It’s worth watching for Alviano’s performance as McAllistar and the incredible practical effects. It’s in the same ball-park subject-wise as Man Bites Dog.

The Bay
Told via a series of interviews, news reports and footage taken from the area, it tells a story about a town that has become plagued by mutant parasites which starts to kill the population. The eco-friendly message is a little too on-the-nose but the performances are effective and Barry Levinson’s (Good Morning Vietnam, Rain Man) direction keeps the pace going for the entire film, it’s also his best film in countless years.



This artist’s gallery contains over 200 works, all of which seem to be focused on the same universe, set of characters, and story, following a central protagonist. Not a single image has any description or title, and any such information that the images once had was removed by the artist some time ago. The artist themselves has no name. 

Their story is to be experienced in one way, and that is purely through their images. With no significant words to follow, search engines can do nothing, making this artist and their work virtually unsearchable. One of the motivating reasons I started AnimeClay was to share this artist.

I finally got around to updating ‘Don’t Let Go’! I tried to push myself as much as possible. Still a little rough as I’ll be entering the finished version in something later this year. Fingers crossed!
