The Franchise Awakens!

     Last Thursday, the official title for the new Star Wars film was released, along with a new logo! I’m sure this same type of thing has already been made by several other people out there on the internet, but being a nerd with Photoshop, I had to just go ahead and make it for myself! 

You can't have a J.J. Abrams movie without some... Flare!
     So yeah! Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens! I’m not sure what that exactly means, but who cares? I’m in! Heck, I was already in! Judging from the level of excitement I’ve reached from just the unveiling of a mysterious title and brilliantly simple logo, I have a pretty good feeling that I’m going to physically shut down when they actually let us see some new Star Wars footage. 

     If anyone is looking for me on the day the first trailer is released, just listen. I’ll be the blubbery mess weeping tears of pure joy! This whole thing may turn out to be another prequels fiasco. I think that’s extremely unlikely, but whatever the case, for right now… it’s a great time to be a nerd!

Super Tunes - Part One

     This sort of thing has been done a few times before. I specifically remember some awesome Happy Meal toys from when I was a kid. However, this being Halloween, I thought it'd be fun to put my own subtle spin on everyone's favorite Looney Tunes in their super hero cosplay.

Bugs Bunny as Superman   |   Elmer Fudd as Lex Luthor

Daffy Duck as Batman   |   Porky Pig as Robin

Lola Bunny as Wonder Woman   |   Yosemite Sam as Ares




Stay Tooned for Part Two!

Chococat

     Lately, I've had this problem coming up with ideas of things I'd like to draw. Thinking it might help get me out of this little rut, I decided to just draw the first thing that popped into my head.

And so... Chococat!

Yaaaaaaaaaaa Hoo Hoo Hooeeeeeey!!


     A film that I've always been a little bit partial to is 1995's A Goofy Movie. While it's not the best movie ever made, it's definitely not the worst either! There's a lot of overdramatic angst for a movie about Goofy, but I can't help but enjoy it EVERY time I watch. I think the songs in this film are some of the catchiest show tunes that have ever come from a Disney movie! Not only that, but there's something I like about the concept of a father-son road trip being a made into a musical. Comforting is probably how I'd best describe it. Despite its many uncomfortable moments (that Max is a real jerk!) I get a nice sense of comfort watching it. 

     So... yeah. There you go. My two-cents worth on A Goofy Movie. You're welcome, internet! 

Guuuuhhhh-Hyuk!

Rebooting Ruxpin - Princess Erin

     This is probably the biggest tweak I've given to any of the characters of my ongoing Teddy Ruxpin reboot! So Teddy Ruxpin purists BEWARE! ...Are there Teddy Ruxpin purists?

     Prince Arin was, in my opinion, a little bland. Plus, much like my adolescence, I've always felt that the series was tremendously lacking in female presence. So I've rebooted said prince into a spunky warrior PRINCESS! Sort of a two birds, one stone situation.


     Again, my apologies to all the die-hard Prince Arin fans out there. Take solace (while I lament) that  I have absolutely NO official clout on the subject of ANYTHING fandom.

...but seriously! Is there a Teddy Ruxpin fandom?!?

What Do You Think This Is, A Cartoon Show?!?

     So I've noticed there's not a lot on this blog about the Disney Afternoon. This is odd, since the reason I ever wanted to start drawing in the first place was because of the awesome cartoons that the Disney Afternoon had to offer.

     For anyone who may not know, the Disney Afternoon was a syndicated programming block of such great Disney shows as Gummi Bears, Talespin, Chip n Dale Rescue Rangers, AND my all time favorite, DuckTales! When I was a kid, the end of school couldn't possibly come fast enough! Every day, my brothers and I would race home and plop down in front of the television for two full hours of animated bliss! Then, I'd pull out the ol' spiral notebook and get to work filling it with Disney-inspired doodles! I'm not sure when I was able to tackle such essentials as homework and eating, ...but I'm now an adult that made it through college, so I guess it worked itself out somehow.


     I don't have any art to post this week, but I did recently get to review one of my favorite episodes of DuckTales over on the Disney Afternoon Forever website.

HOLY...!!! Sorry, Batman... I've Got Nothing.

     Today has been officially declared as Batman Day! I'm not sure who the officials are that can declare such a thing, but they did, and so it is. Let the celebration of a fictitious man who dresses like a flying rodent commence!


     This is in reference to a scene from the 1966 film, Batman: The Movie. In the film, Batman stumbles onto the bad guys' hideout in the back room of some disreputable seaside drinking joint. When he arrives, he notices that the hideout has been abandoned with a cartoonish bomb set to explode. Batman tries to get rid of the bomb, but... well... you get it.

Here's the scene.

 

     I wish this clip played out just a minute or two longer. When Robin asks Batman why he would risk his life to save a bar full of "riffraff," Batman replies (in an Adam West fashion that this blog can not do justice), "They may be drinkers, Robin, but they're also human beings... and may be... salvaged. I HAD TO DO IT!"

That you did, Caped Crusader. That you did.

Happy Batman Day, Chums!
