FROM INSIDE: GARY NUMAN SPECIAL EDITION

From Film Music Daily:

John Bergin‘s award-winning animated film, From Inside, returns with a special edition soundtrack composed by Electronic and Industrial music pioneer Gary Numan. The film centers on Cee, a young pregnant woman who travels through a post-apocalyptic landscape seeking food, shelter and, perhaps, a new home. Dark imagery, destruction of epic proportions and stark realism comes to life through Bergin’s moving images. With the addition of Gary Numan’s signature sound, this film promises to bring the genre of animated features to a new level.

The score for From Inside: Gary Numan Special Edition is produced by Gary Numan and Ade Fenton, and released through Lakeshore Records. John Bergin is a writer, award-winning graphic novel artist and musician best known for his book FROM INSIDE and music for THE CROW.

DUST

Here's my new book, Dust. It's a collection of short comics I made from the mid-90s to present. Blurb on the back cover says: "John Bergin attacks the medium of comics with raw energy and style. His Harvey and Eisner-nominated work deals with themes of beauty and ugliness, of death and resurrection. Bergin’s tone is relentlessly dark, but always retains a sense of human dignity."

It's 180 pages, full color. Available in paperback or Kindle (Kindle edition is free with purchase of paperback).

BRAVE TAILS

I've designed many things over the years, but I've never designed a novel from front-to-back. Here's my first. Brave Tails, by my good friend A. A. Attanasio. Brave Tails is a wonderful YA novel about humble animals defending their home from an army of wild boars. This novel is a re-release, featuring my new cover and interior illustrations.

Click right here own a copy of Brave Tails. The paperback includes a free copy of the Kindle version.

I recommend checking out A. A. Attanasio's Amazon page. Many of his novels are available on Kindle, including one of my all-time favorites Wyvern.

FROM INSIDE at ANCA


From Inside will be screening at this year's Fest Anča, International Animation Festival in Slovakia. That link is to the archive of last year's Fest Anca. Check it out. Awesome festival. Wish I could experience the Animation Karaoke Battle that would accompany From Inside... ie: a headless horse galloping back and forth with rider wearing a GaGa meat suit... scored with feedback. GO.

FAST ART


Most days I manage to find 15-30 minutes (sometimes not all at once) to sketch, scribble, or steal something for no particular reason.

Follow the randomness at There Is No Dog, my online sketchbook.

If you are new:

This blog where I post new work - usually one or two posts per month.

My sketchbook is where you'll find something new every day.

My web site is an archive of published work - illustration, music, comics. For the most part it is older, out-of-print material (I am not always free to post new work and in deference to publishers or labels trying to sell a book or album, I usually hold off making new stuff available for free for some period of time... but everything ends up there... eventually).
