DC The Devil’s Muse: Artist Spotlight – Eileen Steinbach

Published

on

We’ve been going rather steadily with The Devil’s Muse and I’m planning on keeping it going for as long as possible, which is why today I’m highlighting Eileen Steinbach of SG Posters!

I caught wind of Steinbach with her three-piece series of Stephen King original minimalistic posters, each of which can be seen below. From there, we connected and she put together several other examples of her work for us to see and admire!

Speaking about the minimalistic approach, Eileen explains, “I’m a big fan of minimalism in design and illustration. When you look at my work that’s the one theme, I think. It doesn’t matter really how detailed the movie is, when I sit down to start a new poster, I think about about its core. That can be colors or a feeling or a single detail from the story that stands out to me and I’m trying to capture that with just a few elements. After all? The result has to be something I would want to put on my wall. That’s the ultimate goal.

As for why Steinbach opted to do her series around King’s works, she states, “I read pretty much all of his books as a teenager, I guess I’d call myself a fan. I also loved the movie adaptions like Shining, It, Misery and Needful Things. With The Dark Tower and the It remake coming, I thought it might be the right time to tackle his work and turn it into a little series and it’s very likely I’ll add more to it in the future!

Something very important to note about SG Posters is that Steinbach views it as a way to promote other artists and the hard work that they put out. By her own words, she uses her social profiles, “…to not only showcase my own work but other people’s stuff as well.” So if you’re looking for a resource that will show you art from multiple people across a wide spectrum of styles, SG Posters will certainly satisfy that need!

Michael C. Hall Buried in Stephen King’s Pet Sematary

Published

on

Now here’s an audio book we can REALLY get behind! Entertainment Weekly is reporting that former “Dexter” star Michael C. Hall will be narrating the first ever unabridged recording of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary. Sometime’s audio is better!

Readers have been asking for this audiobook for a very long time,” Stephen King said in a statement. “I know the listening experience will be worth the wait with Michael as narrator.

We’re thrilled to finally bring Pet Sematary to King’s audiobook fans,” Simon & Schuster Audio president and publisher Chris Lynch added. “Michael C. Hall is a perfect match for this timeless story, which has long deserved an unabridged production.

The unabridged audiobook of Pet Sematary will be released by Simon & Schuster Audio on March 27. Speaking of Hall… you know he would make a pretty friggin’ good casting choice to play Victor Pascow in the upcoming Pet Sematary remake. Just sayin’.

Saw-inspired Game Play With Me Sets a Trap on Steam

Published

on

Saw fans have a lot to be happy about right now. In addition to Jigsaw being teased for Dead by Daylight, a new Saw-themed game called Play With Me has launched on Steam, and although it’s not officially connected with the franchise in any way, developer Airem promised that they created a videogame which looks and plays as though it were made by Jigsaw himself. As you can tell from the trailer and screenshots, the production values and overall quality of Play With Me appear to be considerably higher than most other indie horror games released on Steam, and you’ll probably be very happy to see that Airem took the time and effort to create stylized hand drawn environments rather than using purchased assets from the Unity Store.

The killer behind the sinister traps in Play With Me is known as the Illusion, with the player taking control of investigative journalist Robert Hawk as he tries to fight his way through a series of sick and twisted obstacles created by the lunatic. The voice acting in the trailer was a little cheesy, although we see at 1:09 that the player will be tasked with using a kitchen knife to cut open a dead body (presumably to retrieve an item hidden in the cadaver’s stomach), which is not an image you’ll be forgetting anytime soon.

IQ Publishing are offering a 15% discount off Play With Me for those who purchase the game before January 24, so Saw fans might want to mark that deadline in their calendars and purchase it from Steam before the time is up. After all, it can’t be worse than Konami’s awful official Saw videogames.
