I saw Shaun of the Dead last week and was completely blown away by it. It was absolutely hilarious. The funniest movie I've seen in a while. Go see it. Today. What are you waiting for? Oh yeah, take a look at my drawing first. Then go see it.
*ahem* I mean, the NEW AND IMPROVED Mr. Willy Wonka of the Chocolate Factory. He's played by Johnny Depp, in the new (yes NEW!) Charlie and the Chocolate Factory movie directed by Tim Burton coming out July 15, 2004. *_* In other words: one week down, six months to go!
The trailer just came out....and hooked me beyond imagination.
+++SORRY! ^_^ I just HAD to do this. I seem to enjoy making fun of movies lately...
I had the thought brewing in my mind since yesterday because of seeing the preview and joking with my Dad about it. But seeing a popular journal entry by topped it ^_^. She had a 'greater than' sign pointing in favor to Wilder stating "I don't care what anyone says". That just made my day.
Anyway, took me 3 hours from start to finish which surprised me ^_^. The coloring is probably off as well as how the characters look because I was going off some horrible reference pics >_>. While listening to the Willy Wonka soundtrack I bought from work. Hee hee.
The original idea for this piece came from back in my days with my band The Unexplained. I was in college and I was websurfing, I've always been a paranormal and UFO buff, so i was checking out website for Area 51. There was this one sight with pictures on it of "real" aliens. in one of the pictures it looked like someone was grabbing the aliens and pulling it waya, and it looked scared.
I thought it was hilarious.
So I wronte a song called Abducting The Aliens, and years later I revisited the idea to create this piece of art.
