soulMaid debut in New York

soulMaid, the independent film my friend Jeff Maccubbin helped create is playing in NEW FEST 2007 (New York's Gay & Lesbian film festival)! Come check it out. I created a short animated segment for one of the chapters of the film, so I can't wait to see my drawings on the big screen. I hope they look good that BIG...

The official screening of soulMaid is on Saturday, June 9th at 10:30pm. Tickets are $13.

Here's a synopsis:
"Almost tailor-made for our new NewFest LateNight series, this campy comedy features an off-the-wall plot, cute boys running around in their underwear, and a unique production style – different directors each completed an individual chapter. In soulMaid, we meet Moses, a cute, sweet young gay man who makes money by cleaning apartments in his underwear. When he experiences an apparent religious vision while having a seizure, he finds himself preparing for the bizarre second coming of an entity named Glintentica. Can his roommate, Ruth, and the man of his dreams, David, bring Moses back to reality? Or will Moses convert them instead?"

See you at the movies!

You don't look anything like your profile!

Okay, I'll admit it. In the past I've tried online dating. Although, I found that the people you meet don't always resemble how they were advertised. Has this ever happened to you? Was your experience anything like my illustration?

Thank goodness I'm in a relationship now!

In other news, the recent death of a well known reverend is causing Teletubbies everywhere to breathe a sigh of relief.

More Puppet Show Backgrounds

This season the puppets venture to a bunch of new places: a creepy attic, an orchard, the dentist's office, and even inside the mouth of one of the puppets! These were fun to create. Mary Blair definitely influenced that orchard background.

In Context

As a friend pointed out, it's always easier to judge an illustration when you see it in context, so I'm posting the illustration below as it ran in print. I think the designer did a nice job of matching the text with the art. Usually, they disappoint me. I hope to do more editorial assignments!
