Trailers for movies you should see: Seven Days in May

Written by Rod Serling, creator of The Twilight Zone, and directed by John Frankenheimer, who also directed The Manchurian Candidate, Seven Days in May is the story about an attempted military coupe in 1960's America. Stars Kirk Douglas and Burt Lancaster.

Surrogates storyboards

Thee are some pretty fast and dirty boards for the movie Surrogates, a film I have not seen, but you can see the thumbnails underneath the drawings in some cases.

This was fun and effective if not artistically pretty. These were shooting boards for a stunt unit with not a lot of time to get them done, which is what they always say, but in this case I drew 'em one day and they shot the next night.

Wolverine storyboards AGAIN?! Ugh.

Everybody likes boarding the action stuff.
I like doing dramatic stuff.
I just wish I was good at it...

Lego Lord of the Rings

Okay, I'm a huge LOTR fan, and while I'm not usually a LEGO guy, this is still pretty cool.


Looking forward to the Hobbit later this year!

Civil War Pterodactyl photo?!

I know it's fake, I'm not that stupid!

But man that's a cool pic.

Sea Dragon

Previously unpublished.

A lot of designers don't do a lot with tails, and I'm proud to follow in that tradition.

Based on the monsters from Wasamatayougottanorespect?, a classic stop-motion monster movie from the fifties.

Chaplin: A night out (1914)

There's a few thing's to notice in this film that's a little more than half an hour long. Firstly, Chaplin and his co-star are fantastic as they act like they've had too much to drink in this story. And mostly there's the idea of seeing a Los Angeles emerging out of the 18th century.


Centipede alien dude from Warhead cover

Yes, another David Blaine video

Just watch it and tell me how he did it. The cell phone gag on the screen is pretty cool too.

My protagonist, Sam Specter. From Sam Specter and the Book of Spells. The big bat's called Shakespeare.
I'm called many things, a few of them good.

I love you

It's not often you hit seventeen, and so today I remember when I walked along the beaches of Tortuga island with you, but you were a baby in my arms...

And then you got older and we explored Crystal Cave together...

You grew out into a fine young boy and we went up to Haleakala on Maui and I walked along the rim of a volcano with my one and only son, and the crater was the second most spectacular thing that day, after you of course...

A few years later, the challenge of Moro Rock then beckoned, and you and I were up to it....

Meanwhile you had gotten even taller, but you still had to grow a couple of inches to catch up to your Pops while we conquered the dang thing together...

That climb was a killer, wasn't it? But we did it, together, father and son, and more importantly, friends. It's stuff like that which I will treasure forever, but it was the company not the adventure that I valued more.

Whatever the climb is, in life or vacation, you'll have me right behind you, whether you want me there or not at the moment, lol. You will grow and you will be taller than me in both stature and as a person, and you and I both know what I mean by that, in all honesty.

My adoration for you knows no bounds.
I revel in the times I was there for you, and loath myself for the times that I failed you, but that is for me to deal with, not you, lol.

Enjoy your day and just know that I remain your humble, loving servant for the rest of whatever life God gives me.



Dinosaur Nerd Alert OR Tylosaur/ T rex fight!!

From the fourth and last issue of Age of Reptiles-The Journey. Given how much water costs in CG, this sequence would be ridiculously expensive to do in a film, but that's why comics are still cool:)
