Get Your KOSART Zombie Statue!

Announcing my first licensed product, perfect for all you zombie, monster, special effects, Halloween, horror, and walking dead fans out there!  Check out this illuminated sculpture that I designed for the Bradford Exchange called "The Dead of Night" available for purchase HERE.

I have been doing work for the Bradford Exchange since 2006, designing products, painting prototypes, and critiquing sculptures, and now I finally have some of my own products that will be available through them.  This is the first product that I will be posting, and here is my concept art for this product (click image to view larger):

    your safety is not!

    • Exclusive design from award-winning Sculptor, Illustrator and FX Artist J. Anthony Kosar.
    • 8"H x 6"W ultimate tribute to The Zombie Apocalypse is sculpted with deathly accuracy.
    • Cast of characters includes 1 skull, 2 walkers, 3 rats and 4 unattached eyes.
    • 12 glowing red eyes have their sights set on you thanks to concealed fiber optics and LEDs.
    • Includes Certificate of Authenticity.

    Walker. Roamer. Lurker. Or Biter. No matter what you call 'em, there’s two full-fledged members of The Zombie Apocalypse coming your way in the first-ever The Dead of Night Illuminated Sculpture only from The Bradford Exchange. An original creation by famed FX designer and artist J. Anthony Kosar, it’s yours for just $59.99*, payable in three installments of $19.99, the first due before shipment.  Requires 3 “AAA” batteries, not included.  Backed by Bradford's unconditional, 365-day guarantee, your purchase is risk-free (unlike an actual zombie encounter).
