Sorry to be running Halloween reruns again this year. Boo! I did plan on doing up a new toonage believe it or not– but (fortunately/unfortunately) something came through late in the summer from the LA trips that I just don’t want to screw up.
It will be announced all officially soonish– but I sold a pitch for a new movie! And now I have to write like a whole mov-ay… script? So if the writing seems slower here on the website the last month or so writing wise–I’ve been like writer guy behind the scenes figuring out this new screenplay (which takes place in the near future and um isn’t a comedy). Weird, right?
It’s really up to the movie people when/if they want to talk about the plot and formally announce– so I can’t just blab here about it because I don’t want them to be all like wtf-ish. But for now I have to write this thing. It’s new exciting ground and a new project for me. And I think it’s going to be all sorts of backflip fresh. But I have to like focus (which is always a challenge).
For those of you toon fans who have been disappointed by lack of site toons– please know that for the past few years– I’ve been working hard on figuring out what I want to be when I grow up. The economy freaked me end of last year into this year (I lost a good chunk of regular freelance work) and I needed to simply get my act together and avoid capsizing altogether. And I figure out what I’m am– and what I hope to be. + I want to make you proud
Know in my heart I’d love to be doing toonages with the gang as a living. And as many longtime visitors know I’ve tried to force myself onto a regular schedule to crank stuff out– and apparently that’s just not my style. I need to be ‘all in’ or it just doesn’t work. Excuses excuses I know– but you haven’t seen the last of toons here– they’re just on extended vacation until their ship finally comes in to pluck them off the island. (btw Mep is still pissed about the badly sabotaged tv show from years ago and plots his revenge). And we’re always looking for a new home.
Fortunately besides the new movie script I am heading back on track with some coolio freelance work and getting my whole shebang banging. As always thanks for your patience here– and good vibes to you totally (especially to all job seekers).
PS. Watch some ghosts of Halloween’s pasts here if you wannas. And share em
