Centralization du bloggo

I really spread myself thin lately, so I'm bringing all my recent (and not-so-recent) work together under one roof at cat-press, I hope you'll join me there and explore what I've been making lately.

Getting Published

Well, it has been a while! I'm in the midst of obtaining copyright and ISBN for my first illustrated book - a Halloween poem my mother wrote for me and my brother when we were wee babies. I'm really excited to see what more can be done to bring this project to life, and am hoping the copyright will be in-hand by the end of next week. I've had a lot of encouragement to run a kickstarter for it and I'm still considering that possibility. It's very hard to determine pledgor incentives (ie- what you get for pledging) since the initial release is in e-book format only. Once the book is IP protected I think it will be easier to go to print and possibly will run a kickstarter for the 1st printed edition. -fingers crossed!

In the style of Negative Feedback
An artist I've been introduced to in my search for contract work. Often merging folded, twisted, or voluminous rocky shapes into creatures, human faces and hands. Most of the work I've seen brings forms and elements together for a very graphic result (rather than portrait or scenery).

This was fun to make and has sparked some ideas for taking this concept further.

Inspired By (previous):

Gorgon Love

and Nightmare Hound

CGC Storyboard

This was the third iteration of a storyboard for a sequence which was written, planned and (up to this version) drawn over the course of just two and a half weeks. It was a great experience to be able to plan the shots and get to see some of my characters playing out a scene and, although I like the look of the final product; I have to wonder if it is overkill... either way it was a fun and exciting challenge, and again, I love seeing LARS and Feldi arguing.

VICs Evolved

The Sled (front, detachable, flying unit)

The Truck

Which the sled folded over for better 'armor'

The Platform

Arial (main flying unit, which could take off and land from the platform, and could recombine with the Sled)

and Station (a utility rack that can be left behind, or use another set of wheels independently)

I used some bionicle and some mega blocks pieces to add more robotic elements and to compact and stabilize moving parts (sorry lego, mega blocks STILL makes better swivels than you guys). There was a lot of reconfiguration possible and three more detachable units (two little flyers that dock on Arial's rear 'wings' and a removable computerized command module for the Platform, so Arial or the Truck could move it about).

This version of the toy was never tested with a roll down the stairs.
