It's almost ParaNorman time! and shows, shows, shows!

Okay, so I'm about to do a little gushing about the day job first... Ready? Here goes...  PARANORMAN !!! It's almost August 17th!!!! I'm bouncing off the walls in anticipation of the release! For those who weren't already aware, I spent 3 years working on storyboards for the film and there is honestly no project that I'm more proud of than this one. I've been fortunate to work alongside so many talented people in the making of this. And to top it all off it's been extremely satisfying to see Chris Butler (he wrote and co-directed ParaNorman) get a ton well deserved acknowledgement for his efforts. Butler is truly one of the good ones! I offer the interview below as proof of my statement!

See it! See it and love it! See it and not love it! Just get out there on August 17th and get in touch with your current feelings on zombies and stop motion!

Whew... alright. I now return you to your usual Grickle blog post:

 Things have been busy these days and I've found it a little trickier than usual to infuse Grickle with the newness it demands. My apologies. I was lucky enough to participate in "the Book show"in Paris, France and "the Beatles Tribute" show at Gallery Nucleus, down in LA last month though.
Also I got to try my hand at an Adventure Time piece for the "Oootopia: An Artgebraic Tribute to Adventure Time" show (a different Gallery Nucleus show.)
Beyond that I'm working on a couple more pieces for a mysterious side project I hope to announce in the near future. Oh man, can you feel the anticipation in the air? I can. :)
