I'd like to post two series of images. One, some pic's from my camera while I was out in San Diego at the Comic-Con 2006. Secondly, I'll show some character designs from recently aired season 2 episodes of the Venture Brothers!
San Diego Comic-Con 2006
I went solo this year (and curiously, so did lots of other friends of mine who usually take their wives, etc. What's that about the economy getting better...?) so my pictures ain't so great (as opposed to my wife Erin's photos). So I got to the Con on Wed night, and this is the first thing I just had to take a photo of - a life-size animated Princess Leia statue. Too cool!
There were three reasons why I went to San Diego this year; the first reason was to re-unite with some old friends I hadn't seen in years, secondly, to say hello to some clients of mine from Adult Swim (Williams St.) who I also hadn't seen in over a year and to also hopefully jump in on an Aqua Teen signing, and thirdly, to arrange a last minute signing at the DC Comics booth (more of a room/large area, than a booth). I managed to do two out of three.
I met up with this guy on Thursday.
Fast forward to Friday night where Adult Swim had their usual party, but this time on a boat that cruised around the bay. Here we see a couple of pics with Jim Fortier on the left (writer of: The Brak Show, Squidbillies), Nick Ingkatanuwat (in production as well as voices for various Williams St. projects), and C. Martin Croker (another old friend I hadn't seen in over a year) voice of Zorak, Dr. Wierd (and many, many more), designer, animator, blogger (arglebargle!), et al.
On Saturday afternoon, I managed to squeeze into the Adult Swim booth's Aqua Teen Hunger Force signing, at the invitation of David R. Willis (writer/creator of ATHF). Here's a couple of pics with me (from left to right), C. Martin Croker (see above), Dana Snyder (voice of Master Shake), and Dave Willis (see above).
An lastly, I had to show this awesome couple. I thought they looked great in their Dr. Girlfriend and Monarch costumes. Which is a perfect segué into some Venture Brothers designs!
Here's a Henchman thug from Hate Floats.
Here's the Ibis Priest from Escape to the House of Mummies.
And finally, Phantom Limb's car, from various season 2 episodes. And that's about it for now. There's lots more on the way - tons of VB stuff that will be ongoing as the new episodes air, and also I'm planning on showing some of my favorite stuff from the development stage of the Squidbillies pilot production.
