Post Comic Con Reflections

Now that things are settling down a bit after the San Diego Comic Con, I'd like to thank Lorin Wood and Scott Robertson for letting me join the signing session at the Design Studio Press booth for the Nuthin' but Mech book. The book was a HUGE hit! It sold so fast that they had to hold back a box on Friday so we would have something to sign on Saturday. Those sold quickly and were all gone before the end of the signing. You can purchase it on-line through DSP or Amazon in a few days (August).

     Also thanks to Jen, Greg, Nak and Miles for setting us up with the ILM Art Department booth. It was a hit as well and many stopped by to tell us we should always be there :)

     And thanks to those of you that were there and stopped by, and those who bought some of the JAEGERTECH prints I had for sale, as well as the Gnomon DVD's. Thanks!  I do have a few prints left over that I will be offering for sale soon, as well as some new ones. I still need to work out the details what store formate to use yet, but stay tuned! In the mean time if you are interested in a print just email me and I'll give you the info.
     The Pacific Rim trailer footage was a MASSIVE hit as well! It's definitely on people's radar now and it even out shined the Man of Steel, Hobbit and Ironman 3 panels! So cudos to Guillermo Del Torro and the hardworking crew at ILM for that! I even met Hugo Martin who did the initial designs of many of the 'Jaegers' and even the teaser poster. Awesome job Hugo!

     And Finally, a great big thanks to all of you that helped fund the SILVERCORD Kickstarter project! We went from less than half (16,000) with 2 days to go to fully funded (40,000) with 17 hours to go! Amazing! And now we'll get to working on that second book asap!

    Thanks again everyone for a successful and fun Comic Con, and I hope to see you there next year!
keep living Above and Beyond!

Next week is the big one, the 2012 San Diego Comic Con! And I'll be there... at a booth... with things to share, show and even sell! I'll be there for several reasons so if you're there stop by and say hi:
Oh by the way our table will be right next to the tank full of live snakes! click here to see why

  (1) First of all I'm going as part of the ILM art Department booth. Our first time doing this but we're excited to get to share some insights into what we do and how we do it. We'll be the small table within the giant Lucasfilm area. We'll have Ralph McQuarrie art on display along with art from the past 35 years of ILM. All 4 of our VFX Art directors will be on hand for demos and a panel on Art Direction Friday July 13th in room 7AB from 1-2pm.
So stop by and see what we have to offer and say hello!

  (2) Secondly we are celebrating the late great Ralph McQuarrie's art and his massive contribution to the Star Wars universe and to us as artists. There will be a tribute to him at the panel discussion on Friday July 13th in room 7AB from 1-2pm.

  (3) I'll be selling some art prints from the new Nuthin' But Mech book that comes out at Comic Con. (The books will be at the Design Studio Press booth) I have made a limited run of 11x14 archival prints of the mechs I designed for the book. They are printed on heavyweight matte stock paper with archival inks.
I'll also be selling a few copies of my Gnomon DVD series for a discount. 
  (4) And if you haven't heard the buzz yet, director Guillermo Del Toro is making a new EPIC movie called Pacific Rim, which I am currently working on. He will be presenting something special in Hall H on Saturday 2:30-5:00 during the Warner Bros / Legendary Pictures panel. So be sure to camp out for that because it is sure to be amazing!

  (5) And finally, The Silver Cord. I'll be on hand with a hard copy of the 1st book, and a flyer with links to where you can download it FOR FREE and links to the Kickstarter page to help us fund book 2. Only 13 days left to go and we still need LOTS of funding! If you read book 1 and liked it, please help there be a completion to the story and donate to be a part of the second book ASAP!

    OK, time to get ready, I hope to see you there!
geek out above and beyond!

Silver Cord

The Silver Cord is a project I worked on many years ago with WIRED 'maverick' Kevin Kelly and other great artists from PIXAR, ILM, Phil Tippet, EA and other great creative companies. We got together nearly 8 years ago to craft a story about the afterlife and wanted to shed all pre-conceived ideas of what the 'angel realm' might be like. Together with some sci-fi technology and plenty of imagination we managed to weave together a rich complex world of 'other realms' that exist along side our own. We designed new worlds, characters and ideas that you can now see and read...FOR FREE! That's right, you can go right now to and read the entire first 214 page graphic novel on-line. Or if you are old school and like to have a paper copy you can order one from amazon createspace for $30.
     The most immediate news is we now need your help to finish the second and final 210 page book. So as of today the Silvercord Kickstarter page is up for you to be a part of the second installment! Please help us reach our goal of $40,000 to help get the second book made so you can finish the story with us!
thanks and I hope you enjoy the 1st book... above and beyond!

Prepping for San Diego Comic Con!

Finally! After years of talking about it, and a lots of work I'll be at this years epic 2012 San Diego Comic Con in July!  I'll be there for several reasons and possibly in several locations. First off I'm going as a rep for the ILM Art Dept along with several of my co-workers. I'll also be helping promote the new "Nuthin' but Mech" book from Design Studio Press. I'll also be showing and even selling some custom mini poster prints of some of my work in the NBM book and some copies of my Gnomon DVD series. I hope to be teasing you with a few images of those posters and other work in the coming weeks.

     So if you're one of the lucky hardcore thousands to be there, stop by and say hello and even take home a signed print and/or DVD!

American Le Mans Series

Spent last weekend at Laguna Seca for the ALMS races. Had a great time with my son and my friend Gus. No Audi again this year, but still lots of great teams out there. Even Patrick Dempsey was there to kick off their season in practice for 24hr run next year. All the photos here are by Gus at Gus Dizon Photography. Enjoy!
