I’ve resisted posting anything to this site for the last couple of months since a new site is in the works. Seeing as it’s not quite finished, I should make a quick update.
I’ve been growing Sideshow Massacre, taking on new clients, new challenges and have even gotten into new equipment.
Sideshow Massacre can now do decals and vinyl graphics. All of those illustrative things we do can now be turned into heavy duty, all weather decals and installed practically anywhere. Now the quest is on for clientele, trying to explain that we don’t ONLY do vomit and peens.
2013 is already shaping up to be mind blowing. Huge plans are in the works (starting with finally dropping the new site). More shows, more art, more deviant behaviour.
Check us out on Facebook for the regular updates and anything interesting we’re doing when not posting here.
This will be the last post about my first show…probably…pretty sure. I just want to thank the people that helped make it happen.
Without Tiemen and Talk’s Cheap, there is now venue and of course no show. He has supported myself and whatever Sideshow Massacre is since the very beginning. I’ll never be able to articulate how much his support has meant to me…he also printed the shirts. Unbelievable.
Darryl, notoriously from SixWordSkits took it upon himself to do the grindhouse event poster. He put together the animated promo with nothing but my drawing of vomiting zombies to work with and then adapted it into the infinitely puking zombies that played throughout the show. This run-on sentence is an attempt at thanking him for his technical know-how and generosity in making the show a proper spectacle.
Metropol printed all the stickers and posters. They never fail to provide fantastic quality along tiny timelines.
Adam for just doing anything I needed at a moments notice.
Most importantly. I need to put out a huge thank you to the masses of people that passed in and out of that scorching hot space all evening. I was thrilled to see so many friends make the trek and check things out. I am still shocked by the number of unfamiliar people that visited, chatted and commented.
It was a reality altering experience, I’ve never had my insecurities been washed away so thoroughly.
When it was all said and done, just about half the pieces went off to new homes and my stock of t-shirts and stickers was decimated.
I’m sorry if I forgot anyone.
Thank you. Everyone.
You can continue to see the work all month though. You should check it out. The shenanigans went down at Talk’s Cheap 556B Pandora ave. and that’s where it remains.
More pictures of my first solo outing, after this break.
Second version of the art show poster. Coming from Darryl once again. Love it.
Share it around!
Thanks again to Clawmageddon at Foxhound Digital for bringing the grotesque to life.
At the end of June I’ll be having a small solo art show. It opens on the 29th and runs for the month of July. I’m trying to get the word out, so if you know anyone who likes zombies, demons, vomit, poo jokes and ludicrous cartoon genitalia, let them know.
Downtown Victoria at the corner of Pandora and Government.
