Here is a little creature head I recently finished. This is a cat creature from a dream sequence in “Return of the Cyclops”. “What is ‘Return of the Cyclops’?” you ask, well calm down, spaz, and I’ll tell you. “ROTC” (short for “Return of the Cyclops”) is a movie that will never get made, because it lives in my head. And although I sometimes allow tiny bits of it to come out, it is far too ambitious and weird to ever get made for reals, yo. You can see the original sketch for this creature in the gallery. There you might also find the poster for this fake film.

That’s right. Remember the new millenium? Well, I was nearly paralyzed with an autoimmune/neurological disorder. So while you were out drinking your pain away, my nerves had already done me the favor. This is a short experimental piece that I did about having that experience. This is the only piece of artwork i made (or cared to make) about such. Now it makes me painfully nostalgic for that era (but not the sickness). This is part one. You can find part two in the media section.
I have also uploaded “De-eeveeo”, so check that shit out.
Finally, I want to say: Happy Birthday Rocket Guild! This month the Rocket Guild is ten years young. And like the shitty parents we are, none of us bothered to write down the actual day. Oh well. Happy B-day beautiful baby Frankenstein. Maybe I’ll get your website up and functioning again. For those of you who don’t know, the Rocket Guild is a collective of artists which originated in Western Pennsylvania, around some notions of poetic terrorism and the deadening of the collective artistic ego. Many tantrums and fond memories later, it still lives. And loves.
This week, we have a very special guest (and hopefully regular), Gabriel Koerner. Gabriel is perhaps one of the best known nerds ever for his participation in a documentary entitled “Trekkies” (yes, he was that kid). And he was the Star Trek geek on the game show, “Beat The Geeks”. He is also a digital artist on big things like “Lost” and “Battlestar Galactica” and “Speed Racer”.
“So what happened to N.E.R.D.cast #3?”, you ask. Well, #3 was recorded while I was out of town, and I am narcissistic, so it doesn’t go here. That and my lack of posting anything else is getting pretty embarrassing. If you want to hear that one, go to schellstudio.com (which I incidentally built) and download it.
