Peter: Some lord from the middle ages asked me to draw his portrait like, 1000 years ago, and I just got around to it so here it is. Unfortunately he died waiting, but rather than depict him as he was, I just drew him as he is (because I’ve got better things to do than try to remember what he looked like). Also he might have been a cat.
Peter: So I received a plastic penguin lawn ornament in a Yankee swap on Christmas this year and saw some room for improvements…
Work in progress – gettin’ some bones on there.
A couple layers of paint later and the skeleton is done. But he’s still not complete….
Another afternoon of painting and – pow! Organs!
He’s one of a kind!
Did you hear? The “Salty Toons” title sequence has been nominated for an Excellence in Title Design award at the 2014 South by Southwest film festival! I’m very honored to be included alongside an impressive lineup of others including titles from True Detective, The Conjuring, Pacific Rim, The Last of Us, The Lego Movie and more. As my Dad put it, I’m the garage band up against the orchestra – and I couldn’t be happier! Check them all out below or on the big screen Sunday March 9th, 4:30pm at the Vimeo Theater in Austin, TX.
