It's been a long time

I have to apologize. I haven't given up on this project. I never will. But between work, and my new son, I really haven't had time to draw or colour anything. And certainly no time to edit a new video. But everyday I walk to work, and everyday I walk back home. And in that time, I'm in Oz.

Hopefully one day, you'll all join me there.

I promise, soon I'll at least post some new sketches.

a child comes

No I haven't forgotten about this blog. As some of you know, my wife is pregnant. Been super busy prepping for that. Combined with work, I haven't found much time for any drawing in the last few months.

Listen to the first part of the song, before the voice comes in. That will be the sound track to my next Oz video. The origin of the Tin Man.

2010 belongs to the dead

Dead ideas. Dead projects.

I'm working on Oz continuously though. I've pushed it to the forefront of my projects. My mind is always bent towards it.

Lately I've been thinking of Dorothy and her arrival to the West to combat the Witch who lives there. I picture her with an over sized helm, at the front of the army. The army is a mash of the Wizards auto-matons, the munchkins of the east, and Animals. I capitalize Anaimals, as the Lion has rallied his people, the creatures of Oz. He is their King, and he takes his place.

The Witch summons her force of flying monkeys to her defense. She also commands wolves and bees (this is all from the original book)., which should lead to quite an epic battle.

My thoughts on the Flying Monkeys. In the original book, the Witch owns a Golden Cap that grants her use of the Monkeys three times. Until she uses all "wishes" from the Cap, the monkeys are enslaved to her. If she has owned this Cap for a long time, would the Monkeys not die after a time? But could they actually die if they still owed the Witch her last wish?

What I'm implying here is not an army of Flying Monkeys, but an army of Flying Zombie Monkeys.

As if they weren't creepy enough.
