Superbusy

Yes, it has obviously been a very long time since our last post. This is not because we’re lazy but because we have been very busy both professionally and personally. I’m not sure how the average blogger finds the time to make posts in times like these. Anyway, let’s get ya’ll up-to-date!
The short comedy film of Superpowers has been completed and had its premier in San Diego on Saturday May 26.We got word that it was a huge hit and due to the audience demands, shown three times!
We missed the premier since we were in Dallas for the wedding of my lifetime friend Randall Knuton to a woman who is a true blessing from God, Ryanna. I was the Best Man! Thank you Randall and CONGRATULATIONS to both of you!! Speaking of weddings, my friend Ryan Agadoni also got married on the same day to a wonderful girl named Amy. CONGRATULATIONS!!
Superpowers was a great film to work on and I feel very grateful that my friend and director Mike Olson let Katie and I share in the creative development. I completed the comic book pages that were featured in a great opening credit sequence created by Jared Gerbrandt and Nathan Morgan.These pages were created using Photoshop, they do not exist in real life! I basically pasted the comic onto some scanned paper that I crinkled and then added a rough paper texture along with painting in some paper stains to show decay. Katie provided all the text for the comic book and the opening credits themselves! The film will be available online soon and when it is I'll let you know.

These days I’ve been working a large illustration and design project for a summer camp curriculum with a superhero theme. How funny is that? The projects are many and diverse (character, logo, costume, set, etc.) One of the projects I’m working on is a small four page comic that will act as a flyer for the camp program.
Here is a sneak preview:This job has taken up most of my time these days. I’ve been working on this while going to an 8-5 job with traffic, a life drawing class two days a week, my birthday (May 8), our trip to Dallas, and our computer was down for almost two weeks. I hope to have more info and images in my next post!
