About

My name is Mike but people also call me Ruined or Ruinedworld depending on what service or game I am in. I have been an artist of some kind for well over twenty five plus years. I have worked with both physical and digital mediums, and in the last five to six years digital has become my primary medium of choice. I am also an avid gamer all the way back to the old woodgrain atari console. Did I give away my age? My perfered poison usually hase something to do with zombies, or survival of some kind.

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, its 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...
