Thank You - 11/23/11

New episode tonight.  Started out as a normal episode but now it's a special Thanksgiving episode and also might soon be (in slightly edited form) an Oscar nominated short.  Fingers crossed.

Also this was the first and only one I've storyboarded by myself, just fyi.  I tried pretty hard to tell a syrupy story in an unsyrupy way... it's still pretty syrupy I guess, but I think it came out pretty nice.

Just a few things.  Couple birthday cards etc.

Too Young - 8/8/11

I'd been penpals with Jesse Moynihan since at least 8 or 9 years ago, ever since I stumbled onto some old issues of Assificado that my brother's roomate had lying around, and felt compelled to get in touch.  About a year ago we finally met in person when he (like me a year or so before) dropped everything to move to the west coast and work on Adventure Time.

Anyway, now we're realpals, and we even got to do an episode together too.  It was effortless and fun, and came out really great.  It's got a real good balance to it;  I can watch it over and over and it doesn't get old.  A lot of credit for that goes to Justin Roiland too, who voiced the Earl of Lemongrab, and crushed it perfectly.

Anyways, it's called Too Young, and you can check it out on Monday night on Cartoon Network.

(Oh yeah, I almost forgot-  Jesse and I made this promo drawing together.  He penciled in Peppermint Butler, Cinnamon Bun, Finn and Princess Bubblegum, and I drew the rest and finished it up.)

Runaway Circus

My old friend Ingrid asked me if I'd like to make a flyer for her circus troupe's upcoming show, "Has Anyone Seen My Stapler".  Well yeah, duh!  Of course!  The best and luckiest part of my trip to Asheville in April was catching their last show, "Portal Party".  Check 'em out if you're in the neighborhood. (See their website for date/time, I guess- that's what's eventually gonna go in the big blank word balloon.)

Heat Signature - 4/25/11

Hey y'all-  I'm in the middle of a month of traveling, so I'm just gonna toss these scans up un-fiddled-with (I made a couple of em, cause I didn't like the first one, but now everyone else seems to like it better, so here they both are).  But yeah:  new Adventure Time, monday night- check it out.  Also, a disclaimer, so expectations don't get skewed, this second drawing has almost nothing to do with the actual episode... fun to draw though.

Go With Me - 3/28/11

"Go With Me", mine and Ako's fifth Adventure Time board, hits the air this upcoming Monday.

I was pretty happy with the little cycle below, but it got cut (though it did get animated, so it's out there somewhere.)  Finn used to be belting out a little song in this scene, but that got changed too, which is why his mouth shapes don't fit his words...

It's ink, watercolor and colored pencil.

Guardians of Sunshine - 2/21/11

Mine and Ako's next episode of Adventure Time, "Guardians of Sunshine" airs on Monday at 8 on Cartoon Network.  The middle bit is all CG, and looks fresh, and was all animated by Jacky Ke Jiang.  Not too much to say about this one- it's pretty straight forward.  It came out nice;  I hope y'all dig it.

Her Parents - 1/24/11

Mine and Ako's next episode of Adventure Time (second one we boarded, third to air) is gonna be on Cartoon Network, Monday at 8.  Guest starring Henry Rollins and Laura Silverman as Lady Rainicorn's parents, Bob and Ethel (if I remember right...)  I can now say that Henry Rollins sang a song I wrote, but it's the shortest dumbest song ever written, so, y'know.  But still.  Anyway, I woulda tried harder, but I thought originally it was gonna be sung in Korean, but then it wasn't.
