I finally found time to record this! A little song I wrote from the point of view of a modern day Hungry Ghost, a greedy big business man (or a woman) who's trying to convert the last free souls to joining him. In my head this happens in a world (maybe in our future, who knows!) where the Hungry Ghosts have eaten almost everything except the factories they've built to make new things. Could look something like the awesome illusrtation by Amberin!
This story might be a bit off-the-track, but it was the first image that came to my mind when I heard the story of the Hungry Ghost... hopefully someone gets something out of this, feel free to remix this as much as you like!! You'll find the stems in the results :))
p.s. yes, I do like pretending that I know how to beatbox and play the harmonica, but hey, first times for everything right? :D
Hello there, don’t be scared, take the monster by the hand
Come on closer, I won’t hurt you, I will help you understand
You look a bit hungry – I know what you need,
Follow me, and let me teach you how to eat
The rule number one is to think about yourself
And when yourself gets big, there’s no room for no one else
See I used to be a skinny little rat like you
But you’ll get big too if you follow the rule number
Two, which is simple: start collecting things
No matter big or small, the more you’ve got the more you win
Life is like a game, see, picking points as you go
And if there’s someone whining, you can just let them know,
that the rule number three says: do what the hell you want
eliminate the obstacles, get out there and hunt
I know it sounds though, but in time you’ll see
Its surprisingly easy to forget how to feel
Now if you do what I say and follow these steps
And forget what’s ”enough” and forget what’s "regret"
Then I might offer you a little precious invitation
To the one and only ”Hungry Ghost Corporation”
We come from around the world from west to east
No matter where we go, we always find a way to feast
If you wanna be like us, big belly’s not enough
Being a ghost requires a dedication to this stuff
Now grab a pen, go ahead and sign this contract
That a boy, good job, now just a tiny fact
Like you know, in life, there’s gotta be a downside
won’t you listen to the rule number four, alright:
As a ghost you’ll get all the things, except satisfaction
And you’ll be incapable of human interaction,
But don’t care about those kind of things that only fools need
Now get out there, embrace your greed and eat

I was a small boy in a smaller town, growing up in a neighborhood with no neighbors.
Clean, yet playful take on the hitRECORD on TV logo. It has a potential to be animated for the open sequence of the tv series.
What do you guys think?
A promo video for HR made with concentric circles from 50 different records.
Hats off to the mosaic of unique styles here on HR, and it was tons of fun to remix everyone's work.
desperate times call for desperate measures.
inspired by rewfoe's general style and "Reading a zombie comic" in particular, as this is what I imagine the comic may be.
Going to toss it into some of the collabs.
some character details:
17 (18 in five weeks)
She got into her top choice school, but the mail has been impeded by the apocalypse. That said, and even though she's quite busy protecting the wee ones she's often in charge of, she's still really anxious about it.
I also see her as very likely existing in some variation of the Kids V. Monsters collabs story world.

This was done for CaptClare's 'Vices' collab. What says vice more than a parody poster based off of the old grindhouse films from the '70s? ****Any ideas on a title for this film poster?****
