Brad Bird’s The Iron Giant is enjoying something of a renaissance at the moment. Mondo featured a number of pieces as well as a vinyl release for this month’s Mondo Con and artists such as Bruce Yan have also been releasing some great art work based. It’s easy to forgive as the film is charming and endearing and was criminally overlooked when it first came out.

Working with artists from the around the World, French Paper Art Club will be releasing a series of projects sharing their vision of the Batverse.

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.
Since the creation of sites such as Storenvy and Etsy , interest in the homemade art market has exploded with people clambering over themselves to get one of a kind pieces from non main stream artists . There have always been artists ready to create and share their pieces of art, but never has it been so easy to display and sell this art to the general public. Now Cult Collective is all about the art, so I thought it high time I focus on some of these homemade heroes and heroines that ply their trade through the virtual world of the web and through conventions.
When I was a child growing up watching movies, I started out with the British classics like Hammer Horror, but soon enough I turned to more American styled movies. It seems Aaron Moreno watched a fair few of these movies too as his artistic creations showcase some mainstream and not so main stream movies. But what does Aaron make? Well through Retroband he creates action figures with a retro flair and style. Remember the old Star Wars figures from the 70s? Well imagine those, only modeled after characters from movies like Creepshow, Silent Night, Deadly Night and Halloween 3. In fact don’t imagine them at all, just look at the incredible selection of images below to see what I mean.
