After leaving the stage, he traveled the country for a decade and dabbled in several fields videogame playtesting and design, comedy writing, boxing, fight choreography and had a three-year stint as the sports editor of a weekly newspaper. Shawn is currently the film critic for the Hamden Daily News in Connecticut and he's working on a short script he plans to shoot in 2008, entitled "Escape From Jesus Island."

Logo Design/Artwork/Concepts: Mordicai Sulk

Mordicai Sulk is a horror illustrator and designer living in Westbrook Maine. He's a horror movie junkie loving the entire genre, although his favorites are of the low-budget, horribly acted type. He works late into the night painting portraits of various different monsters, with zombies being his favorite subject. His work can be seen at www.needmorebrains.com

He first got in touch with Andy to do the logo design for the film "2", then went on to do a 1950's inspired movie posted for the film as well. He jumped at the chance to do more graphic design for Andy for "Monster in the Woods", as well as some preliminary concept art of the monster, which can be seen at: needmorebrains.blogspot.com

This will also be the second film he's acted in for Andy and Olin. He first got bit by the acting bug playing a zombie in their film "2", which in itself was a dream come true. Now, with the role of Shadow Man, his reel keeps growing.
