Freaky Flora Reviewed @ MonsterLibrarian.com

MonsterLibrarian.com has added yet another one of my books to their list of reviews. The review is quite good, although the reviewer points out two goofs I've been painfully aware of. I'll be sure to correct further editions, which will make the first printing a true collector's item ;)

"Michel Gagne offers another alphabet picture book, this time focusing on plants.  Gagne once again offers up amazing and imaginative illustrations, and in this case some are more benign looking while others such as the Cacti look particularly menacing." (read more...)

ZED gets animated!

Click here for permanent page.

Last September, I posted the cover of ZED #8 on line. Soon after, I was contacted by animator, Dean Dodrill, asking if it would be OK for him to do a little animation clip inspired by the cover. Fast-forward a couple of months and I get this wonderful little film. Maybe it's time I get started on the feature film! Check it out!

The Music of Prelude to Eden

After learning of Shirley's death, I contacted Prelude to Eden's sound maestro, Joe Campana, and asked him if he had any recordings from the 1995 scoring session. Joe searched through his archives and dug up some real gems. Check 'em out.

The Saga of Rex continues...

I just posted a 9-page preview of Chapter 4 of The Saga of Rex which will appear in Flight 4 next summer (the entire chapter is 32 pages).

Click here for preview.

By the way, Flight 4 is going to be amazing! And wait until you see the incredible cover that Kazu Kibuishi painted for it. I'll post a link to it as soon as it's available for public viewing.

For all the Flight updates, visit the official Flight website.

Shirley Walker RIP

Click here to view more pictures.

I just learned the incredibly sad news that composer Shirley Walker passed away from a brain aneurism. Shirley was one of the nicest people I have ever known. I met Shirley back in 1995 when I approached her to do the scoring for my short film, Prelude to Eden. What she delivered to me was beyond any of my expectations.

She was amazingly generous with her talent, time and expertise and always a consumate professional who enjoyed her work a great deal.

Shirley will be missed by many who were lucky enough to have known her.
