Revised Promo Art

If you’re not like me, you probably won’t be doing your taxes on Saturday, April 16. That means you can hoof it out to Alhambra, CA, for the opening reception of Gallery Nucleus’s Adventure Time exhibit. It’s an all-ages event featuring not only production work from the series but also personal art by the show’s stellar crew, folks including Pen Ward, Ako Castuero, Tom Herpich, Jesse Moynihan, Kent Osborne, Andy Ristaino, Phil Rynda, Rebecca Sugar, and Bert Youn. Oh, and of course you can meet the artists in person. Hopefully I’ll be boring the stuff out of you over the next two weeks leading up to the night as I get some teaser art. In any case, make sure you put it on your calendar now. They’ll have refreshments, too! (Quick, someone make up a some kind of fancy Adventure Time drink). The exhibit will be open till [Read more…]

If you’re wondering why the posts around here have been light this week, Vermont’s Comic Laureate, James Kochalka, is in town. We’ve been making the rounds with the Johnny Boo creator, trying to get sold a top-secret animation project. James did have time, though, to pop by Cartoon Network yesterday to spend some time with Pen.

Pen & the Giant Jake

March 23rd, 2011

I guess it’s too big to call it “fan art,” but I told Pen and the Cartoon Net execs, this inflated Jake is the biggest actual thing –object– anyone’s ever done for a Frederator show.

The occasion was this morning’s annual network “upfront” presentation at Jazz at Lincoln Center in the Time Warner building in New York, where CN (actually, all the television networks have an overblown, expensive event like this; Nickelodeon’s was in the exact same location last week) tell the ad agencies what’s what at Cartoon for the next year.

The whole place was decked out AT (and Regular Show had some great love too). Now, we’ve got to keep up our ratings in the face of some big guns they announced for the next couple of years (DC Nation, How to Train Your Dragon).
