Flatbush Zombies - Vacation in Hell

Another installment of “Completely Custom,” this time featuring the latest from Flatbush Zombies, “Vacation in Hell.” We were lucky to have the opportunity to work on the newest Flatbush Zombies release , “Vacation in Hell, ” and let us be the first to tell you, this one is INCREDIBLE.

Completely Custom: Shredders

Shredders - Dangerous Jumps

Hard to tell from photos, this really should be seen in person. The […]
