In 2011, I got an INSTAGRAM account, but never really used it because it was a “phone-only” app and extremely difficult to post artwork with, but I just discovered a workaround and now I can post artwork directly to Instagram from my computer. Now I have access to all kinds of stuff, so I plan to fill my Instagram page with brand new OLD artwork every day… so if you are interested in seeing brand new old stuff from me, come on over and subscribe to my Instagram page.
Ghostbuster Ecto One concept art I did for the folks at Cryptozoic a while back. Squashing a mile long 1959 Cadillac ambulance limo down into a cartoon compact size was a challenge to say the least. The preliminary 3-d renders are by the amazing Stephan Ehl.
I just met with a talented group of creatives in their Arkansas studios and I’m excited to announce that we’ve come up with a brand new comic book project! It’s top secret, but I’ve been given permission to share some of the notes from our meeting. We have a superhero named Charlie, a sidekick robot named 10-Boy, a bad guy named the Globber and two squirrels named Squeak and Squawk. The squirrels are indecisive and don’t know which team to root for. They tell me the roads of Arkansas are paved with double-minded squirrels. For some reason the junior executive at the meeting nicknamed me Uncle Dentist. I’m thinking that was an effort on his part to make me feel at home and keep the brainstorming session loose and creative.
This was a fun project I worked on a few months ago. The good folks at Cryptozoic saw a picture I did of my very first car (a 1970 Opel Kadette) and asked me to do the same sort of thing with the old 1966 Batmobile from the Batman TV Series. I worked up a sketch with some quick color on it, DC Comics approved the concept, I did pencil views from different angles and a sculptor digitally created my idea and really took it to a whole different level… look at those flames and smoke… WOW! A prototype was built and shown at the latest New York Toy Fair and WonderCon and this should hit the market and be available later on this year.
