The Infinite Goliath

“Space Pus*y” Vinyl Toy Pledge/Order Drive at Kickstarter.com!

March 6th, 2010

I have set up a funding site to produce the limited edition vinyl toy of my character, “Space Pussy,” that I have been developing…if you get a chance please check it out (and spread the word to as many people as you can, people are only charged if the project is fully funded and the toy will definitely be made!) There are only 89 days left for me to reach full funding, so please pledge/order today!:

My new poster/banner for conventions & appearances, I had it made at Kinko’s in Elk Grove, CA and they did a terrific job (it even folds into itself for travel, and comes with a shoulder bag to carry it in)!

In Memory of Mr. Bobo

October 3rd, 2008

mrbobo_inmemorysmallweb.jpg

Our family cat, Mr. Bobo, passed away on 9/15/ 2008 at 20 years of age. Originally named simply “Bo” after Bo Jackson by my sister (hey, it was 1988), he became known as “Bobo,” then finally “Mr. Bobo” the last 8 years. He was a great “little brother,” and will be missed. I am glad that Mr Bobo will be immortalized as the “Infinite Goliath’s” cat once the short airs on “Random Cartoons” hopefully in January of 2009 (he appears as a white cat in the cartoon, in order to help him stand out from Goliath’s color scheme).

Miss you Mr Bobo!

Goliath Animatic…LOCKED!

June 5th, 2006

Here is a photo of the great Ted Machold, animatics editor, finalizing the Goliath Animatic! Last Friday I was at the Nickelodeon studio and was able to finally lock the animatic, after adding in the last of the re-take lines with the help of talented and patient audio engineer Petak, and talented and patient animatics editor Ted Machold! I was also able to meet Leticia Lacy in person (our fantastic color stylist!), and we were able to finalize the prop colors. Petak declined to have a “blog” photo opportunity, and I forgot to ask if Letcia wanted a photo on the blog, so maybe next time!
