Nelson Boles with “This One Time” is at it again, this is one of my favorites of his. I wish someone would give this guy a grant or funding for a feature. There are very few who can pull off silent movies, much less silent animation well, and this is entertaining every bit of the way. He certainly has a talent:

This music video for “Have you seen my sister Evelyn” is pretty clever. I love the feel of the old rubbery Fleischer style, it has such life and character. I can’t watch this without smiling.
If you haven’t already heard of Stanley Chow, make sure to check him out; his work is great. His illustrative portraits are brilliant, and I love his use of shape rather than line. These could be really nice prints. He has been all over magazines and publications, all well deserved. Here are a few of my favorites:
Things are moving really fast for this project; I love it. Here is the cover for “The Island and the Plough.” In keeping with the entire style, the cover is, of course, black and white. The format is going to be square, likely 8″x8″ but it will mostly depend on the publisher/printer specs. I have seen other square sizes in either 7″x7″ or 10″x10″. I’d love some feedback, so by all means post any critiques or comments. Cheers, Jack.
My inkings in progress. I have a fire under me this weekend for some reason; I hope to accomplish a large majority of the illustrations for “The Island and the Plough” (or “The Island and the Plow”) so I can get into the computer at do the typography. I specifically designed this project to have a lot of negative space, which plays into the story, to keep the project manageable since so many of my past projects quickly become overwhelming.
