FANGORIA Presents: “CORPSING” Competition winner announced!
The votes are in, and the Fangorians have chosen! Artist/painter Vincent Castiglia (pictured, above) has won the CORPSING Competition in our online poll and will design the artwork for our next FANGORIA Presents release. CORPSING will be available on Video on Demand everywhere August 6 (see details here), and Castiglia’s final artwork will be unveiled shortly right here.
“The entire FANGORIA Presents team is extremely happy looking over the results of this art competition,” says Meyer Shwarzstein, president of Brainstorm Media and FANGORIA Presents’ partner. “The response from fans, to three very different approaches, has been amazing. Their feedback has been very helpful. Fangorians everywhere enjoyed being part of the process to find our next designer. The high level of engagement on our Facebook page took us all by surprise. Congratulations to Vincent Castiglia for coming in first with his eye-catching design. And our deep appreciation also goes to artists Marc Schoenbach and Nick Percival for participating in our CORPSING competition.”
And everyone’s a winner in the long run. After CORPSING’s debut, FANGORIA Presents will also engage runners-up Schoenbach and Percival for work on future Fango movie campaigns. In the meantime, Castiglia, a recent subject on National Geographic’s TABOO cable series, is beaming that he came in first.
“It was an honor to have been invited by FANGORIA to participate in this competition along with both other talented artists, and an even greater honor to have been voted in by FANGORIA fans,” says Castiglia, just back from Switzerland where he was a guest at the renowned Giger Museum. “I’m humbled. I look forward to sharing the final artwork with the CORPSING and FANGORIA teams. Many thanks to everyone who voted and to Tony Timpone and Fango for making this possible.”
