Santa Cruz Weekly in California featured my Super Meat Boy drawing on the front cover of their news paper.

You can see the cover here or here.

It's the cover story image for this article.
I expected this to be some kind of bullshit when they contacted me, until they said they would pay, haha. Not the biggest newspaper out there, but I think it's pretty fucking awesome. ^_^

Reorganized my art blog too, added page links at the top such as digital works and photography to show off some of my best works without having to click through a lot of pages.

This truly is unfortunate, Satoshi Kon passed away at the young age of 46 on August 24th, the cause was cancer. His death came quite close to his 47th birthday and before his 5th directed film, The Dream Machine, was set to debut.
Even though I have never met him, this saddened me a great deal.

Just my thoughts on his works..
I feel everything this man has done for the animation industry has been phenomenal. His works are the pinnacle in my opinion. They tackle interesting situations, concepts and emotions that can only be conveyed in animation.
I re watched Paprika last night, my favourite film he has done, and I think the amount of effort put into this animation is astounding. A psychological thriller focusing on the concept of entering and manipulating dreams, with a world and characters that are so vibrant and detailed that a live action interpretation would be at a loss. I feel that you cannot experience anything else like this, nothing can be so expressive and still look very natural. I think using CG effects for a live action interpretation would make it look very unnatural and fake, though it all flows nicely when nothing is straight realism. Though this film probably had at least some influence on a recent film with a similar concept, Inception.

I think his visions for psychological thrillers are perfectly matched with animation that truly engrosses you in the world.

Though half of the works he has directed are psychological thrillers. I feel the stories and concepts for Millennium Actress and Tokyo Godfathers are great as well. The later is a mostly comedic adventure in the lives of 3 homeless characters on Christmas Eve. Though you can also view it as a social commentary about life in Tokyo, easily his most straight forward film. And again, I feel these films are more mature and original for animation.

His cancer caused him to stop working on a new film.

He left a message on his website shortly before he passed.
"Full of gratitude for all that is good in the world, I put my pen down. Well, it's time to go."

And if anyone is interested films he has directed include:
Perfect Blue (1998)
Millennium Actress (2001)
Tokyo Godfathers (2003)
Paprika (2006)
The Dream Machine (to be released after his death in 2011)
along with the lone television series he has directed, Paranoia Agent (2004).

I hope anyone who reads this will consider watching some of the great films and lone television series he has directed and changed the industry with.

I have been making Guy-Manuel's Daft Punk mask/helmet (the gold one) over the summer. I made a flickr set with all of my photos in the process so far… I just applied some of the drywall compound today. Gonna let that dry so I can sand it smooth, then a few more layers of that should be good. Afterward I'm going to vacuum form some plastic for the dome visor so I can see.
I'm still unsure if I will ad LED lights to the mask at the moment, but Halloween mask so far I guess. :P

Other music stuff..
I'm going to see Deadmau5, Benny Benassi and Jesse Keeler of MSTRKRFT on June 30/Canada Day. That's fucking exciting, missed Deadmau5 when he was in Toronto on Boxing Day and Keeler's set got cancelled like half a day before he was set to perform in April.

I'm going to see Crystal Castles on August 14, close to my birthday..Their new album just cam out, it's fantastic.

Uffie's album will be out in like 4 days, after like 4 years of EPs she finally has a full length album.

Check out Trent Reznor's new band How to Destroy Angels.

And R.I.P. Paul Gray (#2), bassist of Slipknot.

Just posted a bunch of character designs over at my animation blog. world1-1productions.blogspot.c…
I'm really happy with these demented designs and am excited to get the main animation started tomorrow.
The animation will be finished by April 22 or 23 so make sure to check out the blog for updates.
The animation will eventually make it's way onto deviantART, but I want to add some Actionscript into it to make it more interactive and user friendly.

I leave you with a bunch of links you should check out. :)

So I just posted a walk cycle for my Mario character design…
This is for an animation titled "Two Sprites One Pipe", that my friend Tom and I are creating.
Please follow our process on our new blog world1-1productions.blogspot.c…

The animation will obviously be based on the Super Mario universe, though done in our own art style and sequence concept.
I just started learning Flash in January. So far I have only learned how to make simple web ads. This new project is something I haven't done in Flash before, a character based animation.
I'm really excited for this project.

:bulletblue: Be one of the first 20 people commenting on this journal entry, and I will add you to the Featured List!

:bulletblue: For each of the 20 first people answering this journal I will put his/her avatar and the three deviations I like most from his/her gallery on the list.

:bulletblue: If you answer, you'll have to do the same in your journal, putting me on the first place, completing the list with 19 other people. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone.

So yes, almost a year later since my last journal... and Cencoroll was released this year (premiered in Canada actually, woot!), a DVD was released in Japan in October for this film. I watched it on youtube a little while ago, I didn't see a release in earlier months and just thought of it recently..
So if you have like 25 minutes to kill, check it..

Part 1: h ttp:// PeERyHB2hyE   

(so stupid devART adds an emoticon, so remove the spaces between h and ttp, and v= and Pe)

Part 2:…
Part 3:…

I'd say the trailers made it seemed more action focused, and more whimsical.. Not what I was expecting but still good for the length of this film.
The art style is something I can get behind, it's all sketch like, makes me think of something animated by Studio 4°C. And certain scenes remind me of the 6 episodes series, FLCL, I'd definitely recommend that hilarious series as well. :)
