nicktoons: invader zim

yet another page from my nicktoons calendar, this time it's "invader zim"!

here's another show that i've never seen an episode of, but hear great things about.

this is actually the second draft of the illustration. the first was rejected because the composition wasn't "in-your-face" enough. i'm glad the art directors pushed me... i feel like this version turned out much stronger.

"nerdist" gig poster

i was contacted by chris hardwick a little while back to design a gig poster for his comedy tour.

you may recognize chris for his stint as co-host (with jenny mccarthy) of "MTV's singled out" in the late 90's, but it seems like nowadays, everywhere you turn, there he is.

from movies ("house of 1000 corpses"), to TV ("attack of the show", "chelsea lately", "the late late show", "the batman") to the internet
(, homebase to his insanely popular podcast), he literally
seems to do it all.

on top of all of that, he's also is part of an ongoing nerdist comedy tour. that's where this image comes into play; the illustration serves as a customizable gig poster that he can adjust when new shows come up.

chris was awesome to work with and basically let me run with my initial idea of having him dressed as a retro astronaut about to defend a distant planet against an invading force of insect aliens. how's that for trust?

terminator poster

when i heard that the colonial theatre would be screening "the terminator" in april as part of their first friday fright night series , i knew i had to do attack it... it's one of my favorite movies of all time!

i'll never forget watching "the terminator" for the first time at a sleepover sometime around 1984-1985. i was at matt sobolewski's house and i distinctly remember my 4th grade mind being blown by the time travel aspect of the film and my 4th grade heart pumping a mile a minute as i witnessed the relentless nature of arnold's path of destruction through LA. top all of that off with stan winston's endoskeleton (which, along with his "predator" design will go down as some of my favorite movie monsters ever), and you have a movie that would leave an indelible mark on me as a kid and would inspire me for the rest of my life.

nicktoons: dragon ball Z kai

continuing the series of pages from my nicktoons calendar, here's "dragon ball Z kai"!

i have to admit, i've never seen an entire episode of dragon ball in any of its incarnations, so i had to do a bit of research when tasked with illustrating goku. i find working on characters like this liberating, as it allows me to start from scratch with no preconceived notions. as it turns out, it's one of my favorites in the whole calendar.
