Memento

An anatomical study for an illustration project at uni.

I need to knuckle down and concentrate, I'm so easily distracted that the work I have to do is getting ahead of me.

I'm working on a graphic novel for university, and it's easily the biggest project I've ever done. It takes a lot of influences from things like Dead Space, Resident Evil and other movies and games but hopefully I'll be able to produce something that isn't too cliche (Good luck!)

I might post the synopsis up here and get feedback or get someone to help me edit the story cause I feel like I need another person's opinion on which direction I should go. Maybe I should just email my tutor!

I've officially finished work on the Splatterhouse comic commission. Now I just have to be patient and wait until I get the go ahead before I share it here and on deviantart. Can't wait to share all the hard work I've done!

I saw Memento the other night and was totally blown away, Christopher Nolan is quickly becoming a new favourite director. If you're familiar with Inception, The Dark Knight or any of his other works be sure to watch Memento, it is a real ride.

And oddly enough it has two main supporting cast members who are also main supporting cast members in the Matrix. Coincidence??

I've also been watching some other classic horror movies (mostly while doing homework). I figure that I should educate myself now in the classics before they become way too dated for me to appreciate , and of course I can say I am using them as influences for my horror comic :) here are some snippets:

Event Horizon


The Exorcist


The Shining
