While I lived in Los Angeles for fifteen years all of my artwork prior to 1996 had been holed up in a garage back in Australia. I now have my old artwork back with me under one roof, boxes of it. I have original designs from Alf, C.O.P.S, and Geeker. Plus all of my comic art from the original Zooniverse series, including color, and older comic pages that I did for Australian magazines from the 1980s such as Inkspots, Reverie and Breakout.
This means that my publisher Milk Shadow Books now has access to all of my past comic work, and we will work towards reprinting as much as we can, the big project is collecting the entire Zooniverse series and digitally recoloring it into a two hundred page color book. In the meantime my first ZooniMini comic has been printed and launched at the Melbourne Oz Comic Con. I will let you know as soon as it is available online. We are starting work on a second ZooniMini.
Meanwhile I have a new animation on the theme of "play". It features a Voidhauler pilot slurping on his fermented bathwater mixed with Kloob Fluid reciting a poem in gibberish to two puppets. It's simpler if you just take a look.
For more information on the background of the Voidhauler pilot, it's all explained on the Zooniverse Comic blog.
Let me know what you think!
Great Fil! Good luck!
I saw your animation on loopdeloop the other day.....did you do the magnificent voiceover work for that clip? If so I assume that is your real unfiltered voice.
Thanks for taking a look, I have to do the voice acting because I can't afford to pay anyone and I'm free. I usually pitch my voice up or down to suit the character. I never wanted to act, but I've had to step up to the plate and just give it everything I have. The "one" animation I am unhappy with, I only had time to do all of the voices in one take and use what I had. I normally would have worked on making each voice more distinct. Still these loops are just the beginning, I intend to do much more with the assets I am building up. Hopefully I'll be able to pay real actors!
yeah the "loops" are epic can't wait to see what they turn into. Forget the voice actors your voice-over work is A1
Thanks for the encouragement, while I have an overall story and concept I am working with the monthly challenge is random and I have to work within each topic, which is forcing me to find interesting ways to approach Zooniverse, which keeps it fresh for me.
this is very exciting news!
I am so excited about more Zooniverse comics,as well as, the collected and re-coloring of the old stuff. Although I loved the color on the comics.
What I will be doing with the color for the collection is scanning the original painted art which I now have and using the exact same color in our digital version. But as we originally painted it, not as the printers often screwed it up. You'll see we'll give it lots of love and care!
Exciting times ahead! I'll be sure to keep an eye out for that Zooniverse anthology then
That loop is loopy hahahaha.
