BEHIND THE HORROR
Since I was a kid growing up in the early 1980's I've always been fascinated by the horror genre, especially films. Growing up in a house where the weekly Tales of the unexpected and Hammer Horror was a stable diet, I quickly become obsessed with the macabre.
Watching Peter Cushing's Van Helsing battle Christopher Lee as the one of my favourite incarnations of Dracula.
Watching the original A Nightmare on Elm Street, An American werewolf in London, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Evil Dead.
I began drawing scary scenes at school (mostly graveyards and zombies.)
As a teenager I picked up the guitar and began to write music and designed cassette covers for my bands demo tapes.
I've played in rock bands for many years now and have continued to put together the artwork for whatever was needed.
Music and designing have always seemed to go hand in hand.
Fast forward to 2020 and I'm still playing music and designing.
Still a massive fan of horror and as I have been designing shirts for my band COUNTING THE KILLERS I thought it would be cool to bring my love of classic scary films back with this new venture.
