It's a new year, and that means a new Monsterpalooza, and that means your humble pubkeep is making new monsters to display at the Monsterpalooza Museum!
Now, if you aren't sure what a Monsterpalooza is or what its Museum might be, you must be new to the S&P. That's not a bad position to be in -- there's so much to discover here. So please click HERE to go to the Monsterpalooza convention site and find out the who, what, where and when. The why should be obvious to anyone visiting the Skull & Pumpkin.
Go on now and come on back when you're finished. We'll be here.
Hum, hum-hm-hmmmmmm, hum-hm-hmmmmm....
Alright, you're back? Sweet.
So! The Art of Monsters takes Burbank by storm for the 4th year in a row, and for the 3rd year in a row, yours truly will be an Artist In Attendance, showing off a bit of my animatronic nuttiness in the Museum alongside works from professional monstermakers and horror artists from all over the world.
It's such an honor for me, and gets more humbling every year.
This time around, I am hoping to supply two pieces to the Museum, and while I don't want to completely give away what they'll be just yet, I do want to share the last few days' progress on one of them.
I'm sure you recognize the audio. If not, you will soon.And as always, it needs refinement, better programming, and real finishing (paint, hair, lenses for pince nez, etc.) Then, the tuxedo'd body, the arms and hands...
I am calling him -- well, that can wait. The full details will come in their time.
But for now, just imagine this fellow standing on a barker stage, footlit bfore a velveted curtain, gesturing to the rest of the Museum with his long, bony fingers; beckoning guests to enter, explore and warn them that "there are such things..."
And that's progress.
Nearly forgot about January music, but that will come tomorrow.
Until then, if you feel this video might disturb your dreams, well... we warned you!
