Fabian Huebner wrote to me the other day to inform me that he had started a Kickstarter project to help fund the rest of his film Fonotune. He told me that he was doing this in order to retain artistic freedom and control over the project. The bulk of the film is complete but more money is needed to add some important desert scenes and to finish the principal shooting. There are some great rewards on offer such as soundtracks, comics, posters, art books etc. with pledges starting at $5. I have finally finished my set of paper toys and these are also available as part of one of the reward packs. Please had over to the Kickstarter page and help fund this amazing film. There is also a Facebook page dedicated to the project.
Last year I was invited by German designer Fabian Huebner of Fint design to provide work for 2 very exciting projects. The first was to create a cover illustration and some logos for a new comic anthology that he is working on called Jet Plastic. I have included my logo and a preview of the illustration here, but please head over to the site for more details on the project as well as a look at the other fantastic artists involved. The second project was to provide some paper toys to promote Fabian’s feature film Fonotune. Though it is taking me a long time, eventually there will be a toy for each of the 3 main characters in the film. Last month an exhibition event was held in Berlin to promote the film called Fntnism and samples of my first toy were handed out to visitors. Fabian kindly sent me a pack of goodies from the event and again you can get a sneak peek of my work in the image below.
Time for a long overdue update. Here is the colour version of my illustration Sharktopus. I made this for my buddy Chris Rauen who I mentioned in a previous post. Chris actually runs a business called 701 Industries that makes parts for jet skis, which will hopefully help make sense of my illustration. Check out their Facebook page here. I also did some logo work for 701 that can be seen on a lot of their products:
