My friend Alex Yao brought the art program Alchemy to my attention this morning. Very quickly drew this frank-miller-ish, face as soon as I got off work. Really digging this program. (it helps generate randomness, in your stylus screen doodles, in a variety of interesting ways).
Recently finished the first draft of a short movie script titled “Artifice,” which is about a young programmer seeking guidance/help in bringing his invention to market. (he’s invented an A.I.). Ian convinced me that two parts of the script (at least) are too preachy and longwinded. too much technobabble, and too many references to modern media companies. Despite old Star Trek episodes (like The Changeling) rocking a lot of glorious technobabble… I’m coming around to the idea that you just can’t talk at length about computer programming details. It’s just not dramatic (to go on and on). you should just say enough to explain any plot concerns, and get back to human drama. SIGH.
Also wrote a short script for a new vidHero short comic, called “vidHero Buys a Taco.” Which is funny. and hopefully will show up right here on this website. (I’m yearning to put up short “practice” comics. maybe one frame at a time. as a way back into drawing nightly.). The story really doesn’t involve movies or super powers, so it’s probably not a great direction for the character. but. eh. it’s funny. i think.
Was working on another new script about a “mad priest” who is trying to raise a tentacled god in a sea cave. AND COMICAL HIJINKS ENSUE! but. it’s gotten pretty far from vidHero town. eh.
Also worked up a bunch of new characters for the vidHero universe. just trying to figure out how to work them into this idea of weekly short form issues.
hopefully, again, more soon.
