New School, Dash Shaw
1. Jurassic Park, Steven Spielberg
2. X-Men, Bryan Singer

I was tempted to post about how Jurassic Park 4 is titled Jurassic World, and how this makes it even closer to ClockWorld, but I don’t want to publicize Jurassic World stuff…  I think of Jurassic World as publicizing me!!!  Bwa ha ha ha!

Here is a special treat. A still from the animation I’m working on.

I just got this in the mail. French New School. It looks good — no printing problems. The Fanta one didn’t have any printing problems either. A minor miracle. I’m gonna be at Angouleme in January for it. I’m curious what France will think of this book. Actually I’m curious what anybody thinks of this book.

Process pics on a two page spread of New School.  A bar scene.  I shuffled things around and eventually tilted the angle to make the space feel more dynamic and crowded.  The first four photos are 18 X 24” sheets of paper, then the last (final) ink pages in the book are two 8.5 X 11” sheets —  but the color layer is still done 18 X 24”.  I draw things in stages, try to get fresh eyes on it somehow, sometimes one stage drawn a year after the stage before.
