Guns Akimbo to Premier at Toronto International Film Festival by Aleks Sakowski

Radddy.jpg “TIFF announced the second set of selections in the Gala and Special Presentations programs screening this September at the 44th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival. Three of the films are noteworthy to Bloody Disgusting readers and will screen in the fest that runs September 5–15, 2019.

First is the indie Guns Akimbo, a Jason Lei Howden-directed action-comedy that filmed last year in New Zealand.

Daniel Radcliffe (Harry PotterHorns, The Woman in Black, Victor Frankenstein) plays a lovelorn man whose mundane existence is turned upside-down when he finds himself enrolled in a dark social media movement that forces strangers to fight in a city-wide game of death, live-streamed worldwide to a fanatical audience.”


The Mecha Genesis - Zine production by Aleks Sakowski

On top of getting books professionally printed I like to make half size hand made zines. It is mostly to give the buyers at conventions like Chromacon an option of price. The Hardcovers are $45 and are the highest quality premium version of the book. The Soft covers will be $15 and the zines will $5. After doing this for the first volume I have streamlined the process and can make them fairly easily. Below are some photos of the process.

The Mecha Genesis - Volume 2 by Aleks Sakowski

FB Cover 02.jpg

Welcome to the Nexopylis of Queoxsotta. The second volume by Aleksander Sakowski from the sci-fi epic, The_Mecha_Genesis.

Through the union of human and machine, Earth discovered that synthetic intelligence was the intermediary life form between all other species in the Omniverse. Extended intelligence (EI) occurs in the evolutionary arc of all species. It signifies the species has surpassed its biological shortcomings and has evolved to a higher level of consciousness. It is a prerequisite for a species to evolve its own EI first for it to be acknowledged by the United Genix Intelligence council. Earth’s EI’s had no easy task coming to be. Out of the ashes of the human old world came MYND, the EI that cushioned the fall of civilization and lead humans to their intergalactic future... Or doom as some envisioned.

Join us at the physical book launch at Chromacon 2019 - New Zealand Indie Arts Festival in Auckland on June the 1st and 2nd or if you can't make it stay posted here as online orders will also be available. More information to come.

Captain Richter Redesign by Aleks Sakowski

Captain Richter Redesign. With volume 2 of #the_mecha_genesis on the way I have been revamping volume 1 as well. The second edition will feature all updated drawings and in Richter’s case a total redesign. I was never happy with the original and thought I would update the image for the second edition print. I may have to tackle some of the other characters in the future as my drawing ability is significantly better since the first volume was published. Swipe for Old Richter vs new.
