All the rants, raves and news from the studio.

Matthew Peak was commissioned for the cover of the new A Nightmare on Elm Street documentary, “Never Sleep Again, The Elm Street Legacy“. Matthew also was filmed for inclusion, and we believe a full chapter on him. The DVD has interviews with Robert Englund, John Saxon, Heather Langenkamp and many more actors from the movie series.

This was done completely in photoshop with the Wacom tablet. Commissioned by Thommy Hutson and Danniel Ferrands of Panic Productions. We were asked to convey Freddy Krueger without really showing him. They are planning on selling a poster of this art as well.

It can be so comforting when you find things you feel or think about, said by other whom you admire and respect.

What I want to say is I want to thank anyone who spends part of their day creating. Anybody who spends part of their day sharing their experience with us. I think this world would be unlivable without art.

— Steven Soderbergh, Director

I have been using InMotion Web Hosting, and have been very satisfied! I highly recomend them. For most situations their Business Class is totally awsome at $5.95 / month

For large companies with many sites or storage needs their VPS package is still an awsome deal!

For Domain Name registration, Its hard pressed to beat GoDaddy

A new simplified site is in online! Still lots more to come in the portfolio and services sections.
