According to the official website, GIANTSUMO is the brainchild of James Rheem Davis. JRD was born in San Francisco, CA and raised in the Bay Area, but now resides in Phoenix, AZ. He uses his full birth name, but is not a serial killer. He is not a GIANT nor a SUMO. He is just a very boring individual who enjoys movies, music and especially cookies. JRD has created designs and posters for a wide variety of bands in 2 distinct styles. His art has an inspiring twisted beauty that draws from a variety of influences, including MTV (When they played videos), Horror Films, and Pop Culture. Major influences include Andy Warhol, Salvador Dali, Frank Kozik, H.R. Giger, Dave Mckean, David Carson, Phil Hale and Kent Williams.
Let’s take a look at some of his work, starting with this amazing Limited Edition American Psycho poster that you can win, signed and numbered by the artist, by simply joining our website right now!
Dan Harding was born and raised in central New Jersey where he grew up with a passion for anything to do with horror. Early on reading old horror zines , comics and books as well as an unhealthy amount of watching television. This sparked his interest in art, wanting to create his own monsters. He spent his teenage years doing art for friends and bands until he moved to PA for quite a few years where art had taken a back seat to life. In the late 90’s he began to feel the urge to get back into art so he started to pick up oil painting.
Never having any formal training it was a long process but he loved every minute of it. He eventually began to get jobs doing CCG art and magazine and book covers here in the US as well as Europe and Canada. He eventually moved back to NJ where he still resides continuing to paint and work in fine art restoration.
However, Dan has never been content with his work. He says, “I feel like I was always so suppressed by creating what publishers and game companies wanted to see that I began to get stale with art. I never really painted something I thought was cool. The past couple of years I have begun to paint what is inside me and I am excited about where my work is heading!”
Let’s have a look :

According to the official website of “Ghoulish” Gary Pullin, his interest in the dark arts stared at a young age.
Ever since an old, unscrupulous priest gifted young Gary with his first set of markers at the tender age of six, he’s been developing his unique style – equal parts Robert Crumb, Charles Burns and Basil Gogos – that has bled into scads of mediums in and out of the genre.
Well, that is one priest I would like to thank. Gary has been creating some of the most impressive horror art in recent years.
He is a true favorite of mine. Just have a look :
His covers for the excellent horror magazine Rue Morgue is where I first spied Gary’s awesome artwork.
He has since designed some pretty incredible posters for some great films and festivals.
His work sets a high standard in horror pulp art.
Be sure and visit the website of Ghoulish Gary to view and purchase many more of his works, including T-shirts!
