THE TORTOISE.
New print available in two sizes, a signed and numbered 9” x 12” giclee, or an 18” x 24” signed unnumbered giclee. I suggest the big one because there’s a LOT going on here. I’ll be tweaking the image slightly before print, but it’ll only get better. Preorders ship the week of September 15th after I get back from SPX, where this will debut. Get on it quick! 

UPDATED to alert you, Gentle Reader, that this image is now available through the excellent Inprnt service in a variety of sizes, printed beautifully.

I wish I lived here.

SETH ROGEN INVITES DUNCAN JONES TO DIRECT ‘PREACHER’ EPISODES VIA TWITTER
By Matt D. Wilson
Writers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are slowly but surely working on the pilot for AMC’s new TV adaptation of the Garth Ennis/Steve Dillon Vertigo series Preacher, and as they write, it appears they’re also recruiting cool directors.

Rogen struck up a Twitter conversation with Duncan Jones, director of Moon (which is super great) and Source Code (which is flawed but well made) — and also, incidentally, the son of David Bowie — to gauge his interest. Right now, Jones is working on a Warcraft movie, but he seemed extremely enthusiastic about taking the reins on some Preacher episodes.

This House Was Inspired By “Star Wars”
Why buy a starter home when you can buy a Star Wars home? The Starwars House, by Korean architecture firm Moon Hoon, manages to look like Obi Wan Kenobi’s guest house without actually directly referencing any single design element from George Lucas’s classic space opera.

I will one day own a home, and it will look very much like this.

The green screen is successfully lit!
I installed an LED into the top of the curtain structure, then covered it with a small plastic container lined with a sheet of wax paper to act as a diffuser. The (red) wires are hidden behind the curtains and run to the power source under the stage floor.
The lighting is looking pretty great so far, so hopefully it will mesh nicely with the spotlight!

Here’s an example of an art project gone awry. I attempted to make a TV to match Franky’s radio, but I made a fatal error along the way.

To start, I took the cap from a cheap candle to use as my monitor, and I used the lid from a random plastic container as the base because it was such a perfect fit. I stuffed some blue cloth into the monitor so that when I put a light in it, it would glow the appropriate color from the side of the stage. I built a back panel to affix it to, and made a sweet flap to run the wire out of. Then I took the leftover marbled Sculpey I had from building the radio and covered it all up, finishing it off by adding the rods in the front. 

The casing wasn’t quite as sleek as the radio’s, and the marbling had become muddled, but I planned to buff it all out and polish it once it was finished baking. Unfortunately, the notion that plastic doesn’t do too well in the oven only occurred to me as I was preheating it. I crossed my fingers that the temp would be low enough to bake the Sculpey without melting the plastic base, but…

When I pulled it out, the base promptly imploded and broke off, leaving me just the monitor intact. But now I don’t have another base to work with, and I’m fresh out of marbled Sculpey, so I’m not quite sure where to go next…

I made a mini newspaper for Franky. Nothing fancy, but I thought it turned out pretty sweet.

SMALL PRESS PREVIEWS: A NEW WAY OF KEEPING UP TO DATE WITH THE LATEST INDIE COMICS

By Zainab Akhtar

One of the difficulties in keeping up with small press comics — particularly with readers newly interested in the area —  is that it can be so bitty: a plethora of artists self-publishing with their individual websites and stores, independent imprints releasing books which aren’t listed in Diamond’s catalogue, and so forth. Comic readers are used to dates shifting around, but this puts the more of an onus on the reader to search out what titles are releasing when — and that’s if they’re aware of the publications in the first place. So the launch of Small Press Previews, a website that brings together over 40 small press publishers, allowing them to upload information about what they’re releasing each month: information, previews, where-to-purchase deatils, is a very welcome and useful resource.

Conceived by Jared Smith, co-publisher of Retrofit Comics with Box Brown, Small Press Previews gathers outfits such as 2D Cloud, Koyama Press, Peow! Studio, Retrofit Comics, kuš! komiksi, Oily Press,  Sacred Prism, Space Face Books, Uncivilized Books, Secret Acres, Study Group Comics, and many more, all in one place. Publishers add the titles that are due for release within the next four weeks at the beginning of each month, the idea being that users can then browse through the site like a catalog.

But I have a really, really huge film print collection that I’ve been curating for almost 20 years now. And I want to show my prints! [Laughs.] We’ll still be borrowing prints from the studios and other collectors, but I like the idea that the base of what we’re doing will be my print collection. Some of them are absolutely amazing, and I want people to see them, to enjoy them.

Well, I’m moving back to LA.

Our little Krampus character may be awfully adorable, but he’s got devious plans on his mind, as this little ditty will attest to. Another stellar track from Michael K!
