I've just finished up the artwork for "Damned eternal" for the metal band Obzidian. The album is a conceptual story of a girl who has killed her parents. She has problems remembering the incident and has a dark half,a split personality that is the protagonist.Obzidian have an awesome groove going on within their thrash driven guitars,punctuated with more sobering guitar solos that are a rare breed,and hark back to Megadeth,Slayer,Testament and such.
The album is in stores within the next few months.You can hear exclusive samples at- www.myspace.com/obzidianband
I will be published in October by Ilex press,for author John Freeman's book-"Scifi art now". Contributing artists vary from Liam Sharp,W.M. Kaluta,Steve Sampson, and John Picacio among many others! You can view all updates at www.scifiartnow.blogspot.com
