Here’s your Hulu embed of Saturday’s episode, seventeen days after airing, blah-blah-blah.

I think there are a handful of episodes left.

Hulu put this up a day late, which probably means it’ll be gone in 16 instead of 17 days. I did the opening “Miracle on a bike” sequence, which actually took about a week to storyboard, given the layers of background kids that had to be drawn. Funny that a week’s worth of labor ends up being about 15 seconds on the screen. Personally, I would have allowed the entire sequence a little more time to breathe, but it was the style of the show not to linger on anything. Besides, throughout my storyboarding career I’ve rarely seen an animated sequence that matched the timing I imagined when boarding same sequence. Except for maybe once or twice, usually what I’d see in my head never really matched up with the end result.
Also, they didn’t animate that rear view of Miracle as sexily as I would have liked, although I did get a kick out of the “halo” effect, which was not there on the board!

Here’s an early draft of my illo for the angry asian man/Secret Identities superhero contest, depicting winner Tiffany Namwong’s character Wildstyle. Drawn using Sketchbook. You can see my final result, and read Tiffany’s character description/backstory for Wildstyle, at either the angry asian man or Secret Identities blogs.
Here’s the Hulu embed for last night’s Sit Down Shut Up. It’ll only be up for 17 days, so watch it while you can.

Hilariously labeled at Hulu as Season 2, Episode 1. Don’t be fooled, Fox is just burning off the remaining 9 episodes that didn’t air from the initial 13-episode order. It’s still cancelled. And since these episodes will only be up at Hulu for 17 days after their inital air date, enjoy while you can. If you’re prone to enjoying Sit Down Shut Up, that is.

Steven Jones just let me know that our 1994 Sherlock Holmes miniseries has been re-released by Gary Reed (formerly of Caliber Press), through his new venture, TransFuzion. Sherlock Holmes: The Cases of the Twisted Minds is a new graphic novel available on Amazon that includes Adventure of the Opera Ghost. You can also order direct from the TransFuzion site, which also has a few extra sample pages up.
The editors and crew of Secret Identities: The Asian American Superhero Anthology hit the Los Angeles area this past weekend, making appearances all over the place. The weekend culminated in book signings/parties at the Japanese American National Museum on Saturday, and Giant Robot 2 on Sunday. Although my old bones were unable to make the Giant Robot event, I did show up for the night at JANM. Here’s me with the lucky winner of my drunken sketch of what has been dubbed as “Asian Aquaman”, which was raffled off as a prize. I’m sorry I don’t remember your name, lucky winner, as I wasn’t quite sobered up yet! If you’re around and see this, post a comment and I’ll namedrop you accordingly.

Episode 4 is really my favorite among the first six episodes scheduled to air this spring. I think it’s one of the more successful scripts to capture that Arrested Development style.
