Looking for Iron Giant Artists

Over the weekend, Bill Liebowitz, owner of Golden Apple Comics in Los Angeles, told me about his intention to do a big signing session for the Iron Giant special edition DVD coming out in November. Bill knew that I was involved in the making of the movie (Special Effects Designer/Animator) and asked me if I could attend. I answered that I'd be glad to. He then asked if it would be possible for me to contact more Iron Giant artists to come to the signing. I told him that I'd try my best.

So, if you were involved in the making of The Iron Giant in a creative position and have received a credit in the movie, Golden Apple Comics wants you for the event! If you qualify, please send an email to Bill Liebowitz so you can be added to the guest list. The signing is scheduled for November 20th.

They did a similar thing for the Hellboy DVD release and it was a smash hit! Check out this link.

Next Three Gagné Statues from Sideshow

About a month ago, I met with the fine folks at Sideshow to decide which would be the next limited edition collectibles to emerge from our collaboration. Since the statues have been such a hit so far, we decided to go ahead and simultaneously put three new pieces in production. All of them are from the Insanely Twisted Rabbits book and here they are:

The second piece in the collection, Scarab Rabbit, is now available and is nearly 80% sold already, so act quickly! The upcoming third piece (Spike Tail) is now available for pre-order. Unfortunately, the first in the series, Demon Dog Rabbit, is completely sold out... that's what happens when you wait too long!

Rex by Rad Sechrist

Here's a wondeful interpretation of my little character Rex (A Search for Meaning: The Story of Rex) by the very talented Rad Sechrist. Click on the image for a larger view.

You can see some of Rad's work in the Flight anthology.

And make sure you check his website while you're at it. It's excellent!

Usagi Yojimbo Pinup

Here's a pinup I did for Stan Sakai. I met Stan at the Emerald City Comicon earlier this year and since then, we've both survived and enjoyed Anthrocon.

I suggested to Stan that we should trade pinups for our respective comic series (Usagi and ZED) which Stan gladly agreed to.

On the right is my rendition of Stan's famous samurai rabbit. Now, I'm anxiously waiting to see what Stan will do with my little alien ZED!
