Adolph Busch and Drawing Ahead - a bit of the past and a blast of whats next...

I've been falling a little behind on Dream Life this month, sorry to say. 

Such timing. Much needed big contract came in, so it's been getting the lion's share of my time along with major apt cleaning and a prolonged search for the new roommate! One can't be too careful.

Got a trip coming up too, i'm attending FanExpo 2010, i'll be at the TXcomics table, seat number P40B. And on a panel with a pile on of Canadian cartoonists, Unfortunately i won't be going after all it terns out, too busy with work to spare the slack time for this, but check it out anyway if you can....
Comics Programming Spotlight: Drawing Ahead - The Future of Comics - Saturday @ 11AM in Room 205B - Aug. 16, 2010
While the art and craft of graphic storytelling remains unchanged, there are a variety of new mediums for creators to use to deliver their visions to the world. With the boom in mobile digital devices, paper and print are no longer the limit, and many artists are finding success creating and distributing their work in digital form. Join a panel of leading comics creators to discuss the evolution of comics distribution, the benefits and drawbacks of working with or independently from a publisher, and their current and future projects. A great forum whether you're an aspiring creator, an established pro considering your options, or a fan interested in new ways of reading comics.
Panelists include: Ramón Pérez (Kukuburi, Butternut Squash), Andy Belanger (Kill Shakespeare, Bottle of Awesome), Cameron Stewart (Batman and Robin, Sin Titulo),Scott Chantler (Northwest Passage, Two Generals), Willow Dawson (No Girls Allowed), Max Douglas aka Salgood Sam (Sequential Spiltink, Dream Life).
Moderated by Conor McCreery and Anthony Del Col (Kill Shakespeare)
So that hopes to be fun.

I'll have copies of Dream Life with me, only a few it looks like 30+, no budget it looks like to get more printed before the show unfortunately. Wanted to get a T done too. Been to busy to make it happen.

The 'Day Job' is pretty cool though. A Bravo!FACT grant project, a short partly animated illustrated story of the last three months the german composer and violinist Adolf Busch spent in Germany, and how he responded to the rise of the Nazi Party.

Working title "One Good German". 
Directed by James Murdoch.

I have to do about 40 to 50 illustrations/frames for it, have 10 done, taken a while to get warmed up into it and start feeling confident with the likenesses, but here's some of my favorite bits so far. The whole project is being posted as i go here on flickr.

 These are all built in animate-able layers, so Busch will bow the violin...


 ...applauding hands wave...


 ...and so on.
