Sid and Marty Krofft's Greatest Saturday Morning Hits (DVD, 2010)

The Krofft DVD I did the art work for is now available on Ebay





As you can see, they messed with the art a bit - but that's okay... it was a fun project.

Krofft Poster...

Here's a poster I did for the Krofft's. I believe it'll be a give away at the San Diego Comic Con this year and a possible dvd cover for an upcoming release???

ALSO - looks like there's a good chance you'll be able to pick this stuff up at my booth at the Toronto Fan Expo at the end of August.

Krofft Skatedecks...

Here's a few skatedecks I was commissioned to do for the upcoming 2010 San Diego Comic Con.


I think they're limited prints of 50 or so per deck - so if you're a Krofft fan I'd get there early.

Is This Real???


I've been asked many, many, many, many times - Is this for real? Like for real, real?

The simple answer is...no. This is not my property.

Although I've received many emails and phone calls from interested parties - most recently someone representing the Krofft's themselves, I have never 'officially' pitched the idea to the Krofft's or a network.

Maybe things will change in the future. Maybe Marty Krofft will call me up one day wanting to take this to the next level. Maybe some huge network wants to throw a huge wad of cash at me to produce it. Maybe, maybe, maybe....on and on.

Until that time, this will remain a labour of love. But I thank those of you who like what I'm doing and want to see this become real..like real, real.

Interesting Developments...


There have been some interesting developments in the past couple days. I don't want to jinx it so I'm keeping it close to the cuff for now.

I'll be working fast and furious on the project to meet a self imposed deadline. There's still a ton of posing to be done in order to get the animation ready.

I'll keep you all posted on the progress and share the good news 'if any' when the time is right.

Rough Leica...


Okay, so it's been awhile.

That said, here's the rough leica for the opening of the show. I plan on changing the very beginning to an old phonograph - close on the spinning record. And at the end, I plan on cycling the music a couple times so I can add Puf and friends riding the rainbow like a roller coaster off into the distance.

Big thanks to Paul Watling for the storyboard and to Hugo for lighting a fire under my ass to get this progect started up again.

LIVE ACTION SEQUENCE...

This stuff is so sweet - it'll be a shame to paint them.


Here are some of my latest Ebay purchases - well the phonograph horn and brass eagle claws anyway. The turntable I found at a flea market in Aberfoyle, Ontario.
I'm going to build the Pufnstuf Music Machine for the live action sequence of the opening.
Anyone know where I can find a rainbow colored record?

I've started to create the rough assets and custom posing for the promo - not a hard task when you start with Paul's rough board panels.

A Boy And His Magic Golden Flute...


The Pufnstuf storyboard is almost done and I couldn't be more jazzed. Paul Watling has really done some killer work here. I snuck a panel and colored it up while he had his back turned.
This things really starting to take shape;) We plan to color key the whole board out - I'll post as we go.

Well, somehow I got this far and didn't realize he was missing his neck - ha!
I'll have to give him another go at some point.

Jimmy Gets His Hair Did...


Now that we're heading into boards I've really got to nail down these characters. Re-designs won't affect the thumbnail board but we can't really finalize anything until we're settled on the proportions and size relations of the characters to one another.

*NEW* Pufnstuf Theme Song...




My buddy Paul Watling introduced us to James Black and Rick Jackett of Finger Eleven. These two super talents created a new "Pufnstuf Theme" for us. We are hoping to use it as the soundtrack to our upcoming animated promo.

Thanks Guys!!!

Freddy Flute...

Freddy was the one character that was burned into my brain as a child. There was a creepy-ish quality he had that I just couldn’t shake - probably why I've waited so long to give his design a try - I wasn't quite sure how to handle it.

On one hand the creepy factor is the main reason I loved this character and on the other there's a reason Pufnstuf only ran one season. Do I go with what I remember or try to re-envision something that may be more appealing to the masses?
I feel this take has tons of potential - but is it Freddy?

Shady Characters...


Here's one of the pieces I'm putting in for the SHADY CHARACTERS show that my buddyJared Deal is putting on at the Live With Animals gallery in NYC at the end of July.
Because most of my color work is created digitally, I've included the original ruff and the clean without color to go along side the finished art.
below originated at cartoon brew

"Shady Characters" is an art show that opens Friday, July 28th, at the 'Live with Animals' Gallery (210 Kent Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11211; entrance to the gallery on Metropolitan). Opening reception is from 6-9pm. The show, curated by Jared Deal, is "simply a tribute to all of the creepers and tweakers, outcasts and outlaws, and freaks and geeks, we encounter daily." Participating artists include Deanna Marsigliese, Clio Chiang, Steve Lambe, Gabe Swarr, Rex Hackelberg, Anna Chambers, Mark Ackland, Todd Kauffman, Joel Trussell, Bobby Chiu, Martin Wittig, Aaron Augenblick, Phil Rynda, Peter Browngardt, Danny Kimanyen, Randy Ramos, Garnet Syberg-Olsen, Jamie Mason, Chris George, Eric Nocella, Dino Alberto, Jason Levesque, Tim Shankweiler, Eric Brown, Mark Pecoraro, Pat Pakula, Kevin Schmid, Kaori Hamura, Richard Mather, Rod Filbrandt, and Deal himself. Stay tuned to Jared's blog for additional details.

Back To It...

My good friend Darren and his band are recording our new Pufnstuf theme song next week. I'm really jazzed about it cuz I've been itching to start thumbnailing the board for the opening. Suppose I should stop farting around and actually nail down the style. Any comments on the style direction would be greatly appreciated ;)
Andrew -thanks so much for Freddie Flute. I have him sitting on my desk coxing me on.
Craig - thanks for the much needed nudge. This blog has been sitting idle far too long.

The last thing I wanna do is draw what already exsists. I'm hoping to recreate and still have the loyal fans say "Yah, that's different but it's still Pufnstuf".

Ruff Mockup...


Super fun for a first run mock up - still needs tons of work ;)

Rescue Racer...

This is a very slight variation on the "Renegade" style. It's super fun to draw and I think something similar would lend really well to such a fantastic world. I plan to do more studies like this in the future.
Now I just need to figure out how to get to the future.

Seymore the Spider...


This is a pretty graphic interpretation of Seymore. I've since redesigned him to be more animation friendly - not as limited.

A Gift from Pufnstuf ???

Witchiepoo - "SEYMORE!!! Call the Bomb Squad!"

Witchiepoo has so far been the most difficult to design in the series. She's tons of fun to draw but I think this pic is more silly looking than it is good. I'm not 100% happy with her and most likely will redesign her a bit.
Here she is with a black line. Made some changes and it seems to help a tad. Witchiepoo had this strange eye make-up in the series that i don't want to lose - but creates color issues.
I'll throw some color on it after Christmas.
I lied - here it is. - HAVE A HAPPY HOLIDAY EVERYONE!!!
