Steam Crow Release Party for After Halloween

What do goblins, witches and beasties do after Halloween? Why they get jobs of course!

Come check out the third book release from Steam Crow Press, After Halloween: An Alphabet Book at Red Hot Robot this Friday.

I’ve been a fan of Daniel Davis’ work since I first met him at Refresh Phoenix. When we first met, he had Caught Creatures under one arm and a Klawberry plushie¬† in the other hand. He’s an amazingly dedicated guy with a TON of talent, not to mention spooky things in his head! So if you love things that go bump in the night, come join us in releasing this spooky new book into the world, while supporting an amazing Phoenix artist.

Layer Tennis: Grats to Jason Santa Maria!

Game, set, match! Every Friday Coudal Partners, hosts a live weekly match of layer tennis.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with layer tennis, it’s a design game where two elite designers are pitted against each other in a design-off. Each designer has an allotted amount of time to return his serve, in Coudal’s matches it’s 15 minutes. They are given a topic by a referee, and must keep elements of the last serve within their design. At the end of 10 serves a winner is declared by a forum of spectators.

This week’s topic was of course Halloween! The opponents, Jason Santa Maria and Brian Taylor. The competition was fierce, the topic one both opponents know and love. The match was narrated by freelance writer Matthew Baldwin, who described the blow by blow action in gripping detail. By the end of the match we had been horrified by the best, with images of blood, flies, clowns and blood-sucking zombambis. Declaring a winner was difficult for the onlookers, but finally Jason was declared the ultimate layer slasher.

For photos of the gore and more information on the players and narrator check out the full match.
