2580. Sposnor // IKEA Time Travel Continues

The IKEA time travel experiment continues and this time with Jeff and Beth. In the 2nd installment hypnotist Justin Tranz guides a young couple through a series of challenging life events including a marriage proposal and a boisterous teenager. See the complete video here.

Justin Tranz has done well over 6,000 stage shows and is the only hypnotist in history to ever legitimately perform on Broadway. He has helped thousands in their bid to stop smoking, lose weight or attain other personal goals. He has also worked with medical professionals, corporate executives, and athletes in all sports and levels of competition.

With the Time Travel Experiment, IKEA collaborated with Tranz to put the spotlight on events that change how we live and our everyday lives. And in this film becoming parents is portrayed, which is one of the biggest transitions of them all.

Here’s a link to the first episode in case you missed it.

Michael Del Mundo is an artist who’s responsible for so many great comic book covers of late, but I didn’t realize, until recently, who he was. The new Marvel Now Elektra series features both cover art, and interiors by Del Mundo, and it’s received a ton of well deserved critical acclaim. In fact, he, and writer William H. Blackman have impressed Marvel so much with their work that they’ve been promised another project once Elektra ends.

Del Mundo has brought the same unconventional, and dynamic style to his interior artwork, that has made his covers so memorable. I’m looking forward to see what comes next for this exciting, young artist!

Michael Del Mundo is from the Philippines, and currently lives in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. You can follow his blog here.

2590. Wonderful Weirdos of Literature 2014 – Installment #18

If you've been following along with our Fifth Annual Bugs and Bunnies Wonderful Weirdos of Literature Series, we're glad you're back for more. And if you're visiting for the first time, well, we're glad you're here.




If you need a refresher on what this series is all about, clicking on that link up there at the beginning of the post will catch you up quite nicely. Then come on back here to keep the weirdness rolling.

So far in the Picture Book and Poetry Palooza that is this year's sub-theme within the Overall Weirdo Theme, we've frolicked through the following weekly Variations on the Overall Weirdo Themes:


And today, we bring you Installment #18:

Supernatural

Specifically, monsters. Not the dark, blood-curdling, super-scary kind. (We don't do a lot of dark here on Bugs and Bunnies.) Just the quirky ones:



The Monster Trap
Story and pictures by Dean Morrissey
Written by Dean Morrissey and Stephen Krensky
Ages 5 - 10

Paddy has come to stay with his grandfather for a few days. It's his first time there on his own, and Pop's place seems darker than Paddy remembers. That night, they listen to Monster Radio Theater, and when bedtime comes, Paddy is sure he hears the monster from the radio stories. Pop's solution? A monster trap, complete with "sure-fire, high-grade monster bait."

The next morning, the small trap is empty. Pop thinks that means there aren't any monsters. But Paddy thinks they were just too smart for the trap. So Pop and Paddy get to work building a bigger, smarter trap.

And if it works? Well, that could be a whole new problem.




I Need My Monster
Written by Amanda Noll
Illustrated by Howard McWilliam
Ages 5 - 8

When Ethan heads to bed one night, instead of his usual monster under the bed, he finds a note: "Gone fishing. Back in a week. – Gabe" 

Ethan can't sleep without his monster under his bed. And he can't go without sleep for a whole week. So he does the only thing he can think of – interview for a replacement.

But can any of the other monsters measure up to Gabe?

* An added treat: We found this video from SAG Foundation's StoryLineOnline.net, with actress Rita Moreno reading I Need My Monster, including animated illustrations from the book presented as she reads. A bit over 11 minutes, total, and very, very fun!



Professor Wormbog in Search for the Zipperump-a-Zoo
Written and illustrated by Mercer Mayer
Ages 3 - 8

Professor Wormbog's beastie collection is incomplete. Though he has found a beastie for nearly every letter of the alphabet, from the Askinforit to the Yalapappas, there is one last beastie that still eludes him: the one for Z, the Zipperump-a-Zoo.

So the professor sets off, determined to catch one and complete his collection. He digs a pit. He fishes the sea. He tries to lure it out of the air. He climbs a craggy peak. He drops into caves. Each time, he finds something. But each time, it is not the Zipperump-a-Zoo. Finally, the disappointed professor gives up and heads home, empty-handed.

But sometimes? The very thing a person searches for the hardest tends to turn up in the most unexpected of places...




The Mysterious Tadpole
Written and illustrated by Steven Kellogg
Ages 5 - 8

Every year, Uncle McAllister – who lives in Scotland – sends Louis a birthday present for his nature collection. And when this year's gift arrives, Louis proclaims it "the best one yet," and takes it to school the next day. His teacher proclaims it a tadpole, and Louis names it Alphonse.

By summer, Alphonse still looks nothing like a frog, and has outgrown his jar, the kitchen sink, the bathtub, and even the apartment. Louis decides what Alphonse really needs is a swimming pool – which they don't have, and can't afford to build. Though nobody wants to, it looks like the only option is to take Alphonse to the zoo. But that night, Louis remembers the middle school pool, which sits unused all summer. He happily sneaks Alphonse in, and it works...until the swim team shows up for its first practice, and the coach says Alphonse has to be gone by the next day.

Louis is out of options and in despair when he runs into his friend, Miss Seevers, the librarian, on his way home. He tells her his problem, and then takes her to meet Alphonse. And then, Miss Seevers comes up with a plan to help. A plan so far-fetched, it just might work.

* * *

See? Not scary at all. Be sure to come back next Friday, September 26th, for Installment #19 of the Fifth Annual Bugs and Bunnies Wonderful Weirdos of Literature Series, when animals and people show there's more to them than meets the eye.

Until then, we'll leave you with this:


"The possibilities that are suggested in quantum physics tell us that everything that we're looking at may not be in fact there, so the underlying nature of being is weird."

                                    – William Shatner

2591. U – The Cheesebridge Look

The setting for Laika’s upcoming stop motion film The Boxtrolls takes place in in Cheesebridge, a fictional faux-18th century city that houses the underground dwelling Boxtrolls and everyone else, who live above ground under the political lead of the Lord Portley-Rind and his upper crust council The White Hats. To help visualize the world of The Boxtrolls, which is a mélange of German Expressionism, steampunk and tktktkt, they enlisted the aid of concept illustrator Michel Breton. Breton’s work possesses a nervous line quality that was kept in the final designs for not only the props and sets but also the costumes. “A lot of the linework in these costumes is slightly crooked which fits in perfectly with the sets,” said Deborah Cook, who designed the costumes for the film. “It comes from the original concept illustrations for the film, the line work is kind of wiggly and we just brought that through to combine everything into our own unique look for Cheesebridge. The Cheesebridge look.” Cook, who also designed the costumes for ParaNorman, Fantastic Mr. Fox and Corpse Bride, does technical fabric testing and character studies as well as working with the project designer, directors and character designer to help develop the film’s visual language and the color script. Eugène Delacroix’s “Liberty Leading the People”, 1830 To get a vibe for the colors used in an era, Cook begins by looking at art from the time period. The color palette for the costumes came from Delacroix’s “Liberty Leading the People”. “It’s just got little bits of turquoise and ochre and different shades of yellow and the browns and the touches of token red is where the Red Hats came in.” “We wanted some authenticity to the era so we’ve used some velvets and chiffons and things, but we back them in something [else]. We use the properties of two fabrics, for example, Eggs’ pants has got a non-stretch suiting on the top, but it’s backed with lycra.” In terms of construction, some of the sewing on the surface is done with machines, but the costumes are always fitted onto the puppets by hand. “All of the puppets are hand made so they’ve got a certain difference in them, so even though there might be duplicate [puppets] of Eggs, each one has got it’s own little idiosyncratic shape. It might only be a few millimeters out here or there but it’s a big difference [in stop motion]. If you did that all by machine and tried to fit it, each puppet would look so different, so you really have to line it up by eye and fit it by hand. (Costume Image #2) When with such small subjects, scale is always a concern. If a character is supposed to be wearing denim, you cannot use the actual fabric, because once it’s blown up to full size on the screen, it will no longer look like denim. Laika uses laser etching to create everything from pressed velvets, to lace, to cutting elaborate patterns into materials. Cook also did intensive research on military and gang clothing. This was particularly a great deal of inspiration for Cheesebridge’s high society TKTKT, The White Hats and Snatcher’s exterminator crew The Red Hats. “For the white hats, it’s kind of a distilled [military] presence; lot of medals and sashes. Lord Portley-Rind looks militaristic, he’s got his plate on the front, he’s got his tails and his top hat and his feather plume. As far as gangs, [it was] to try and get a feel for how people customized their own clothing and how much of it came from or are influenced by more sort of upper class clothing. [So] when it comes to the Red Hats, [the mark making is] done in a very different way, it still denotes them as a kind of gang or a team or as a recruited party of some kind but they’ve sort of customized their own jackets.” To compliment the contorted lines of the sets, crooked line work was implemented into the designs of the costumes. TKTKTKT still functional… “We put [the lines] in places where the pants needed to stretch so that when he’s not moving those lines are closer together and when he moves it gives him the stretch that he needs. It really helps the animators if he needs to kneel down so he’s got a lot of lines around his knees and up around his butt. Another thing we do in the costume [is] we line the seams up so everything’s got several purposes, they also need to pass over the puppet’s access points so they’re not twisting the costumes around or impairing movement.”

2592. What I Did on My Summer Vacation Part Two


Enjoyed a bit of sun on our deck back home in California, watched pelicans dive for fish pulled weeds, trimmed massive vines invading the garden and planted new things. 




Clean up and properly stored some old friends I haven't used in awhile and probably won't in the near future ...I'm going to take up paddle boarding here in Mauritius. 


Here is a picture of the one made by Shannon McIntyre for me back in 1998- my first surfboard. I took this photo from the water in 2001 and it hangs in may parents' home.

2594. Tales from the Lead-Up to the Symposium


Today is my last day in the studio for nearly 2 weeks: I am off on a book-tour trip to Spain. There is so much exciting stuff happening at the moment! I will of course tell you all about that when I get back but, in the meantime, I still have plenty to tell you about my extraordinary time in Brazil.

The historical centre of Paraty, where this year's Usk Symposium was based, was a lovely, calm place and very pretty, so perfect for sketching. 


There was quite a lot of variety to draw too. I had a full day to get my bearings before the symposium, so I decided to use one of the concertina sketchbooks I made recently to record my day and what I could see as I walked around.

 

You can see the first couple of sections more clearly - the sketches of the church and the vultures - in my first symposium post. That was my morning, pottering around, sitting down beside other sketchers, or wherever caught my interest. 

At lunchtime, we found a brilliant little self-service place, where you paid by the weight of food eaten - a rather novel and very handy idea. We ate there almost every day and more and more sketchers joined us each time until, on the last day, you couldn't move for urban sketchers:


In the afternoon, I sat on a doorstep to draw this wonderful church across the Praca da Matriz, half-obscured by trees dripping with vines and covered in epiphytes. Unfortunately for me, the woman in the house behind me was doing her cleaning... 


I was suddenly enveloped in a cloud of dust and muck that she swept through a gap under her front door. Bits in my eyes, bits in my mouth... it also filled my paint palette. And then, just a few minutes later, I was sprayed with water from a passing van's windscreen washer. A rather eventful half hour! 


There were quite a few work-horses in Paraty. Some were pulling carts, but this one was for tourists, with a trap. He was unsure of me, because of the eye-flaps, which meant he could hear and smell me, but not see what I was up to, so I tried to be as quick as I could. 


In the evening we did 'drink and draw' sessions, first in a little bar and then at a restaurant. These are a regular feature at symposiums. We all go out together and draw each other across the table. It's great fun and much better than photos when you are looking back. We often pass the books round, so people can add their names to the drawings of themselves - it's a good way of remembering people's names:


Okay, that's all for now, but I have plenty more, which I will set up to publish while I am away. I still haven't told you about my workshops, the flood (!) or my trip to Rio. Watch this space!

2595. Travel Madness

It has been a CRAZY summer! I am REALLY behind on posting here.

I went to Portland in July for ICON the illustration conference and just got back from 2 weeks in Romania. I am now digging out from under a TON of work.

So, enjoy these ICON and Portland sketches.

ICON was a great time. I met a lot of cool artists and got to visit LAIKA studios.

I do wish they had a set up that involved smaller groups rather than a lecture hall for all the presentations one after the other. I know there are a lot of challenges putting up an event like this, but there was an impersonal, lecture hall freshmen 101 feeling to it that would have probably been helped by everyone picking 3 or 4 smaller sessions a day to see.

It would have also been less overwhelming.

The speakers were very good for the most part; there was just a fatigue that set in when you watched so many in a day.

The workshops were set up more in that way and were excellent.

More soon!
