Billy and Mandy's Big Boogey DVD Cover
I'd like to think it's worth it. After all, I've been cracking my whip on the backs of my minions (and myself) for almost a year to bring you the best dadgum DVD I can. I have a feeling you'll like it. And I don't usually even bother having feelings.
Here is the DVD cover I did for Atlanta. In the end, they changed a few things. They like everything big. The good news is, I got my wish of flourescent ink. Yessss!
Here were a few sketches that I did before I started on the final.
And here's the final. The coffee stain was added as a joke before I sent the jpeg for approval. On the back... yep. It's the Kracken. We had him in the script before we knew Pirates 2 was coming out. It worried me at first, because I thought that people might think we were ripping off the movie. Then I remembered that we always rip off movies, and we were indeed ripping off a movie in this case. It was just a movie with a Ray Harryhausen Kracken instead of a CG one.
For me, a lot of the fun of making cartoons is that you get to revisit the things you loved about your childhood. When I was a wee lad, I used to love movies like Seventh Voyage of Sinbad, Jason and the Argonauts, and Clash of the Titans, so it was fun to be able to do a big pirate adventure story with lots of crazy monsters. I love me some monsters. Mmm-hmm.
So check out Billy and Mandy's Big Boogey Adventure this Spring. There's a Billy moment that still blows my mind. I'd tell you the air date, but I'm not a numbers man.
