Welcome to the ruined world

My name is Mike but people also call me Ruined or Ruinedworld. I have been an artist of some kind for well over twenty five plus years, during which time I have worked in both physical and digital mediums, experimenting in many different media and styles.

I lean towards the dark or horror / sci-fi, and surrealistic genres. Growing up in the Zombie capital of the world (Pittsburgh, PA) has left a lasting impression on my interests in the realm of survival horror, and apocalyptic fiction. With such zombie legends as George A. Romero and Tom Savini, it's no wonder my first love was zombie movies. As a child I was spoon-fed a well nourished meal of Chiller Theater and Dr. Who every Saturday morning. One of my first memories of going to the drive-in movie theater was seeing George A. Romero's Dawn of the dead, and I remember just being in awe of this film. Many years later I am still fascinated with everything zombie and sci-fi related...

Website Overhaul...

I am currently in the process, of ripping apart my entire website and making new graphics and such for it. Those of you who do web design know this is a pretty big task, especially when the only time to do it is when I am done with work, and you want to build the entire thing from the ground up... so yea... It will get done... at some point!
