About Mr. Brian Steward:
  News UPDATE! Brian says... "I've been a professional illustrator for over 18 years. This is my full-time job, but it's hard to see it as that since I love it so much.
In the past I've worked with Kevin Eastman for Heavy Metal Magazine, and Andy Sidaris' Malibu Bay Films. Most recently, I've done promotional artwork for actors Sid Haig (Spider Baby, The Devil's Rejects), Ari Lehman (Jason:  Friday the 13th), and my buddy Laurence Harvey (Human Centipede2); a forthcoming video game, "Cowbell Hero"; and am currently doing some work for Eerie Von (Samhain,
Danzig).
I work in both traditional and digital media and have illustrated, designed, colored and inked numerous comics and children's books. I have acted as lead designer on several magazines, books and websites and also worked in the
animation field as lead animator and designer on many television commercials and corporate videos. I tend to like projects that are slightly twisted or slant to the darker side. I used to have more blah, blah blah here, but now I don't... I feel more mysterious!" Brian Steward's events schedule

The Hammer Horror Blu-Ray Campaign



Sign the petition to ask Warner Bros to issue their Classic Hammer Horror titles on Blu-Ray, fully restored and mastered in 1080p for maximum picture quality!

Sign here: http://diaboliquemagazine.com/sign-petition-wb-release-hammer-horror-titles-blu-ray/

Why is this important? WB’s Hammer titles represent the British company’s very best output, and for many reasons, including cultural and historical, we believe these films should be restored and released in the new digital medium without delay.

Major studios are reluctant to release most of their catalog titles on BD due to the expense of scanning and restoration, as well as limited shelf space in stores. Instead, they focus on a limited group of films that they consider big moneymakers. Our goal is to show them that there is a robust market out there that goes beyond blockbusters. Supporting this campaign is a vote for classic films in general, and for greater diversity of titles in the home video marketplace.

The importance of this campaign to cinefiles can not be overstated. That’s why Guillermo del Toro, Bob Burns, Douglas McKeown, Mark Verheiden, Shane Briant, Svengoolie, and Chad Crawford Kinkle have all signed!

Warner Bros is listening! Make your voice heard NOW!
