this island earth


I know I know… I’m a jerk for the blog running so slow lately, but it’s due to good things happening. I love you blog… promise.

Hey if you happen to be in LA, my piece for the Family Guy’s “What The Deuce Are You Staring At!?!” show is debuting November 8, 2006 at The Museum of Television & Radio. CLICK HERE for some info if you’re interested.

In other news, Coldcut’s DVD has dropped so I can share the This Island Earth piece. Here’s a few viewing choices:

Best part of working on this was the crew that threw down. Thanks to the supertalents Mark Ackland, Darin Bendall, Gene Blakefield, Anton Bogaty, Jared Deal, Matt Rodriguez and Grant Sligh. Many fine thanks to the Mighty Dan Kreeger of One Small Step and the Incredible Vez Commissioner Extraodinaire!

The word was Coldcut was orginally seeking out a female director for this piece, so I apparently fit the bill nicely.

Here’s some behind the scene artness…

I got that bad mamma jamma Heath McPherson to jump in for some concept art, but he unfortunately had to bail in the end (argh!) One day Heath… one daaaaaaaay! Look at this beauty.


Mark Ackland turned in some incredisketches! His talent cup runneth over. Here’s some sketches that didn’t squeeze in. It was a task just trying to narrow down what to pick from this powerhouse.

More hotness from these and other kids soon.
Hope the vid’s alright. Give me a shout and lemme know what you think.

    Excellent stuff Joel. I loved it. Especially when the monkey smacks his hand away. Add cute girls and this is the best thing I’ve seen in awhile.
