Exclusive prints  and music from the Grickle store (Hidden People set, Children of the Night & their Dad set, Principal Skeleton, Space Sadness)

 Who's your favorite Grickle creation? The Hidden People? Principal Skeleton? The duck from Forest Electric? Well, if you picked one of the first two you're in luck!

The Grickle Channel T-shirt campaign!

I've been itching to do up a new Grickle t-shirt for a long time now but was loathe to deal with the nastiness of a million sizes and packaging. I thought I'd never get it going but via twitter I was pointed to the fine folks of teespring! It's like Kickstarter for t-shirts! You submit a design, set a goal and time limit, and if you reach your goal they print and ship the shirts! Perfect!

So what are you waiting for? Go to teespring and get some Christmas shopping started!

The Principal Skeleton trilogy

Continuing on the theme of "Skulltober" I thought it might be a good time to review and relive the three Principal Skeleton cartoons out there. Soak up the trilogy in all it's skeletal glory!

Well, the fall has arrived and that means Halloween isn't too far off. I've come to accept that one of my all time favourite things to draw is skulls. This could very well be a left over remnant of my teenage years spent  redrawing  "Eddie" from Iron Maiden album covers, but whatever the source the desire has never left. So I'm kicking off October by attempting to draw as much skull related art as my schedule allows. First up is "the Purple skull of gladness", soon to be followed by more I hope.
I watched "Dead Alive" for the first time the other night and I cannot fathom how I'd managed to miss this movie before! A lot of excellent similarities to "Evil Dead 2", which is hard to come by, in my opinion.

Just a quick post for now. I'll plan to update more as the month progresses!

It's almost ParaNorman time! and shows, shows, shows!

Okay, so I'm about to do a little gushing about the day job first... Ready? Here goes...  PARANORMAN !!! It's almost August 17th!!!! I'm bouncing off the walls in anticipation of the release! For those who weren't already aware, I spent 3 years working on storyboards for the film and there is honestly no project that I'm more proud of than this one. I've been fortunate to work alongside so many talented people in the making of this. And to top it all off it's been extremely satisfying to see Chris Butler (he wrote and co-directed ParaNorman) get a ton well deserved acknowledgement for his efforts. Butler is truly one of the good ones! I offer the interview below as proof of my statement!

See it! See it and love it! See it and not love it! Just get out there on August 17th and get in touch with your current feelings on zombies and stop motion!

Whew... alright. I now return you to your usual Grickle blog post:

 Things have been busy these days and I've found it a little trickier than usual to infuse Grickle with the newness it demands. My apologies. I was lucky enough to participate in "the Book show"in Paris, France and "the Beatles Tribute" show at Gallery Nucleus, down in LA last month though.
Also I got to try my hand at an Adventure Time piece for the "Oootopia: An Artgebraic Tribute to Adventure Time" show (a different Gallery Nucleus show.)
Beyond that I'm working on a couple more pieces for a mysterious side project I hope to announce in the near future. Oh man, can you feel the anticipation in the air? I can. :)
