About the author:
Specializing in quintessential horror and pinup imagery, the works of artist and photographer Jason Tamvakis offer an accomplished cornucopia of visual flavors while retaining a recognizable signature artistic vision. Curvy cosplay corpses, gore-lusting glamour-girls, and fantasy fetish femme fatales populate the landscape crafted from the febrile mind of Jason Tamvakis. Gathering his influences from horror and illustration elitists George Romero, KNB EFX, Tony Moore, Zack Snyder, Mark Wasyl, Hussar, Frazetta, and Simon Bisley. Tamvakis' style is rich in evocative atmosphere while creatively skirting the line between the beautiful and the macabre.

Jason Tamvakis, was born 11-12-1970 In New Rochelle, NY, where he attended Jefferson Elementary School. Since childhood Tamvakis had always been well acquainted with shock culture. His mother and avid horror movie fan, Donna Tamvakis would play such classics as Night of the Living Dead and The Day of the Triffids for Tamvakis when he was a young boy. As he got older he was drawn to the vivid portrayals of relentless violence and the intricately detailed scenery and characters depicted within the world of comic books and video games. Being drawn to illustration and digital art at such a young age, he discovered his talents quickly and developed them as he grew. After attending high school at New Rochelle HS, he sought training and obtained a certificate in commercial arts at the Art Institute of Connecticut. He went on to dabble in additional training classes at Monroe College and beyond. After some schooling he obtained a position as an Artist for Mada Design, Inc. Through the company, Tamvakis has had his hand in projects contracted under such prominent names as The NFL, NBA, NHL, and MLB, as well as Dreamworks, Marvel, DC, Chris Hart, and Nickelodeon. After having the experience he needed to pursue his own personal career, Tamvakis served as a freelancer, working for comedians Patrice Oneal, Robert Kelly, MMA Superstar Shayna Baszler, and Actress Sasha Grey. He became well known for his contributions to community projects throughout the Tri-State Area such as The New York Zombie Walk, local TV shows and online horror networks.

Now with his newfound fan base, years of practice, and a hearty portfolio under his belt, Tamvakis is fully equipped to embark on publishing his acclaimed works to be shared amongst his horror-enthused peers throughout the world.
