Another Twilight Cover

I shot this cover a while back and the book is finally going to be released in April 2011, “The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide”.

Here is the press release:

NEW YORK, NY (October 6, 2010) — Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, a division of Hachette Book Group, has announced today at the Frankfurt Book Fair that it will release The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide by Stephenie Meyer on April 12, 2011. This definitive encyclopedic reference to the Twilight Saga is the only official guide and is full color throughout, including nearly 100 full-color illustrations and photographs. The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide will be released in hardcover for $24.99 and also be available as an e-book.

The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide provides readers with exclusive new material and everything they need to further explore the unforgettable world Stephenie Meyer created in Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn and The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner. The Guide also includes character profiles, outtakes, a conversation with Meyer, genealogical charts, maps, extensive cross-references, and much more. Originally announced as “The Official Guide,” The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide includes illustrations from several artists, including Young Kim, the illustrator behind the #1 New York Times bestselling Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Volume 1.

“I’m always amazed at how many in-depth questions my readers have about my characters and the world within the Twilight Saga,” said Stephenie Meyer. “With The Official Illustrated Guide, I hoped we could incorporate as many details as possible, including character histories, like Alice’s back story. I’m thrilled with the different artistic interpretations done by Young Kim and the other talented illustrators, including Bella’s wedding dress. I hope the fans feel it was worth the wait!”

In five years, Stephenie Meyer has become a worldwide publishing phenomenon. The Twilight Saga’s translation rights have been sold in nearly 50 countries and 116 million copies have been sold worldwide…

China’s Digital Camera Magazine published a small article on my Bigfoot series.

Here’s a rough translation:


For the popular vampire novel “Twilight” novel cover photo shoot photographer Roger Hagadone of the United States seems to be a love film with the monster-related topics, in his private film project “Bigfoot”, the North American people are familiar with the legend of the monster star full taste. Roger is also the scene of the shooting using the film, tells the fictional story of a weird funny, I do not know for what reason Bigfoot out of the forest, into the daily life of a small town, this group of pictures in his story, although is still grim, also because of the morning alarm clock awakened and smashed, but this monster has emerged from the vampires, werewolves a class of eerie, but town residents and live in peace, people rightly be regarded as a member of the town, whether it is Bigfoot and the little girl’s play, cut the hair or to the barber shop, have revealed a strong expression of the photographer and the monster you want to form a great contrast to the mischievous looks cute personality….

Ok, enough about my “love film with monster related topics”…

Latest Mr. Bricks Movie Poster

Here is the latest poster for Mr. Bricks, I shot the images back in June. World premiere of Mr. Bricks, A Heavy Metal Murder Musical is scheduled for late fall. My buddy Tim Dax is starring in it. Tim is also making a cameo appearance in my upcoming short, BrewView, more on that soon…

Mr. Bricks centers around a drifter named Eugene Hicks, better known on the street as “Bricks.” Bricks (played by the inimitable Tim Dax) becomes hopelessly entangled in a bizarre love triangle involving himself, Scarlet (played by Scream Queen Nicola Fiore) a female police officer who is the object of his desire, and Dukes, Scarlet’s partner on the police force and the man keeping her away from him. 

Complicating the matter is that while both men have deep feelings for Scarlet, she, in turn, has deep feelings for them, despite the fact that her relationships with each of them are incredibly volatile. With one bullet in his head and an accumulating amount of murder charges, Bricks makes it clear that he will stop at nothing to get to Scarlett and make anyone standing in his path pay with their lives; brick by bloody brick, he’ll get his revenge. 

Accompanied by a completely original heavy metal score, composed by the film’s writer and director, Travis Campbell, Mr. Bricks is set in the gritty side-streets and other locations in and around Long Island City, New York. It’s G.G. Allen meets The Rocky Horror Picture Show!


Here is a teaser vid… warning, it’s a scosche violent. 🙂

Twi-Tats

What freaks me out?… Twilight tattoos. The thought of my photographs permanently tattooed on a person’s body is bizarre… dare I say, Twi-tarded. Occasionally people email me pics and I’m always surprised to learn that there is another one out there… Here are several of them, the good and the bad… mostly bad.
