What a week. I am slowly starting to understand how Instagram works, I was attacked by a lunatic on Facebook, and I am preparing to co-direct a film with a genius artist. Yes, life is varied and strange.
Very excited to debut my alien mask “1955”, a massive creation of brains, pointed ears, and yucky, open-mouth visibility. It’s inspired by a mask I saw many years ago my master effects sculptor Mike Trcic, and I never got over how cool it was… so, like many of the things I’ve created, it’s a matter of making stuff I wish was either out there in the world, or re-making stuff I couldn’t afford at the time.
In other news, I am slowly getting together the material for a book of my own. This is a longtime dream of mine, and I am very excited to get it going; the biggest hurdle looks to be culling all of the work that I have done over the last thirty years and putting it into a single tome. Yeesh. This will mean going through every computer I’ve ever owned, every sketchbook I’ve ever drawn in…. an enormous task, to say the least. But I want to do it, and I think it could result in a very dynamic volume.
Also, I am completely obsessed with the following combination, which you should try---but only with a seasoned professional present: A scoop of Vanilla Haagen Dazs, a hearty portion of Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal, and a dollop or two of Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup. Place the contents into a bowl, retrieve a spoon from the nearest utensil drawer, and begin transferring, bit by bit, the contents of the bowl into your mouth. You may watch television while you do this, but not Mystery Science Theater; the risks of choking while laughing are far too great.
