The name seems to have sprung out of nowhere. A few weeks ago I had never heard of Matthew Therrien, but now it seems he is all over the place. With an EC inspired comic inspired Kickstarter in the works, a Manborg comic book under his belt and producing artwork for the upcoming horror documentary Why Horror? it seems to be a really great time to be Matthew. It is also a great time for art fans, especially if you are of the horror movie variety.
You see Matthew really likes his horror movies and being a horror fan myself I can relate to that. Alas I do not possess the awesome artistic skills that Matthew has in sharing his love of horror to the world via his art. Here is a brief example of his work, but do not worry there is much more to come.
Horror flicks are awesome, are they not? Well I think they are and growing up with a healthy dose of them has also meant anything horror related is always worth checking out. So it was quite a surprise when the horror based documentary Why Horror? crossed my path without me having any prior knowledge of it. I must be slipping in my old age. Even more surprising was the amazing art that has come out to promote it.
An interesting premise is followed up by some pretty awesome artwork. Cult Collective regular Gary Pullin has created a superb, 80’s styled poster which covers the whole gambit of horror while getting a bit of the red stuff in for good measure.
