One of the most prolific and talented artists working today (especially in the horror community), here's what Gary had to say about bringing his unique style to his "zombie sun" poster for SYFY's Day of the Dead series:
"When SYFY asked me if I would like to create a limited edition poster for their new series inspired by George Romero’s Day of the Dead, I immediately checked out the first few episodes they sent and I was pleasantly surprised. It also helped that my friend and fellow Canadian Steven Kostanski (“The Void,” “Psycho Goreman”) was in the director chair. With Steven at the helm, I had a feeling the zombie action was going to be insanely inventive and I wasn’t wrong! The creative team at SYFY asked that some of their political themes were incorporated into the piece and they wanted the image to be bright, bold and have a sense of humour so we came up with the “zombie sun” concept. The rays gave me the opportunity to hide tons of easter eggs from the series. I hope George Romero fans check out the show with an open mind and have as much fun watching it as I did creating this limited edition poster. Long live Romero!"
