I just got back from working in Paris with the amazingly talented Passion Pictures and Fortiche Studio. I was fortunate enough to work with such a seriously talented team. No exaggeration, these guys know their shit… and I miss them already.
So these last couple weeks I was art directing and illustrating the music video which coincides with the comic we are debuting at Comic Con, next Friday. We’re having a panel and a signing that day. Come by and say hello (Friday July 13, 2012 1:00pm - 2:00pm @ Room 23ABC & Signing @ 2:30).
The video is a prologue to the comic. There’s still a lot to do. I’m not exactly sure what I am allowed to show yet, unfortunately. Which is not much, I’m sure :\
Instead, here are some random pics from my trip.
…more on Instagram.
So, I redesigned my website finally. Goodbye Flash version. Hello new LOSFOKOS Lots of new work through out. Specially in the apparel section. I’m also selling some of my original art. I’ll be adding more originals soon.
Here a some other places you can find us online. Some of which are updated more so than our portfolio site:
Wow, I can’t believe it’s been almost 6 months since I quit the day job. I kind of expected to have a little more free time with side projects. Things have been too busy for extra curricular shenanigans. I even had to bail out on a stop motion music video for Danger Mouse. Would have been fun.
I definitely have quite a few surprises coming up.
These past few months I’ve been hard at work illustrating a comic book series that will be premiering at SDCC this year. There will most likely be a panel set up as well. Unfortunately, I can’t share any of it and I can’t do any name dropping, either. Sorry, agent P.W. Herman won’t unveil his secret mission just yet.
Another project I’m trying to get off the ground is a vinyl toy series called SomberSo•SoSomber (working title). The preliminary models will be carved out of wood for exhibition purposes and then duplicated out of vinyl. They will come with hunter/gather accessories and a hunting dog will be sold separately. Here are some preview sketches:
I might start a KickStarter for S.S.S.S.
More to come…
Infamous Apparel (owned by department store Tilly’s) stole a design I did for the Salvation Army’s Wardrobe Apparel. It is currently on their store racks.
100% of the proceeds generated from TSA’s clothing is donated to people in dire need, world wide. People holding onto their lives depend on this kind of support. For shame, Tilly’s, taking money away from those in need :\
Infamous’ knock off (notice they didn’t even bother changing much):
Welcome to the apparel industry, folks.
