Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter: Fresh Blood Hunt (UK Residents)

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter Fresh Blood Hunt
I’m not sure if you’re aware but there is a film coming out this summer called Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter and judging by the trailer it looks really promising. It’s based on a novel by Seth Grahame-Smith (any fans out there?) and the film version comes to us from Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov.

An art competition has been launched called Fresh Blood Hunt, and Booooooom and a few other art sites including Beautiful Decay and Lost at E Minor have been tapped on the shoulder to help gather submissions! The winner gets their artwork turned into a mural in London, and you also snag a 17″ Macbook Pro and Adobe CS6.

I think these types of contests usually attract the worst kind of art but I have a say in the finalists for this one. I’d love to see someone from Booooooom do something creative and win it!

    Too bad the winners will be based on social media voting/status rather than good artwork. Thanks for the heads up though Jeff.

    • cheers fonzo – if i had a say in the design of the competition it might work differently but i will be doing what i can to push good work to the finals though

    definitely entered because of this post, here’s hoping  my entry isn’t ‘the worst kind of art’… 

    • cool man look forward to seeing it

        there’s a pretty awful entry winning at the moment, fonzo was right. bit of a shame.
