I don't really know what to make of Beckmann's art. Yes, there are zombies. I get zombies. I even understand that they are going on with live as if they were still living, attempting normalcy.
However, I like my monsters to be monsters. I'm tried of the monster is oh-so-human motif. Monsters should be killers rather than misunderstood versions of humanity at its worst. Humanity is scary enough that it doesn't need help.
Still, the art work well done and gruesome. Just because I'm sick of zombies doesn't mean Beckmann's art is not good. On the contrary, the black and white drawings are horrific and fun, well worth a good look.
Yup! I have a story in Cifiscape Vol II. I'm just trying to get the word out about the anthology.
