A few months ago I mentioned a project that I've been working on in this earlier Journal Entry. It's a project called 8House devised by Brandon Graham to be published later in the year by Image Comics. 8House is an overall concept from which various Creator-Owned titles will be released by other artists and writers.

Helen Maier and I have called our comic series 8House: Yorris we are writing it together and I'm doing the art. We created this project with all of you in mind. We thought it would be fun to re-imagine our entire animation career, mash all of the shows that you know and love into one big project, blending them into a new, but familiar style, and using old school inking with steel nibs and brushes, the same way I made comics back in the 80s.

We have been having a great time working on it, and I'm designing brand new creatures and characters. It has been refreshing to run with any conceptual idea that interests us, without any studio bosses to hold us back! This is our baby, and we are pulling out all of the stops! So if you are a fan, or friend, of the shows that we worked on in our long careers, there will be something for you, Bugs, Ghosts, Monsters, Kaiju, Aliens, Mummies, even Zombies, we've got you covered. Speaking of which, here is a  sneak peek at the cover that I finished last week:

Well, all good things end I suppose. Still, here's hoping they take some design cues from your Godzilla the Series designs.

Honestly I'd rather they were original like I was and come up with their own style. Especially since they've taken such great pains to move away from the 1998 Godzilla, ending up with a fat shelless snapping turtle.

Hi!
The important thing is to look at actual animals, learn from nature. It constantly surprises me with designs I'd never considered.

I had no idea you lived in Australia, I'd like to shake your hand and buy you a beer some day. Godzilla the Series was by far the most epic cartoon of the 90s and I'd be proud to meet the man who designed the monsters on that show. :D

Unfortunately, I doubt I'll be able to male that one as I live in Sydney. Will you be going to any Sydney conventions?
