Purchase TICKET at Cory’s shop.
Cory Godbey has just released a 28-page paperback picture book called “Ticket“. From the teaser:
Ticket is a story in pictures and a collection of all things Cory loves to draw. From windmills flying above grassy hills to massive birds landing in Grecian vineyards, Ticket follows the story of a girl, her hat, and the curious events which transpire.
Cory posted the epic illustration mentioned in the teaser as his entry for Illustration Friday’s “Enough” theme. I’ve been grooving on Cory’s whole exploration and documentation of Ticket on his blog, it’s absolutely captivating. I can’t wait to read it!

I am a huge fan of what political illustrator Steve Brodner has done with his cartoons on the New Yorker website. This technique is a perfect marriage of classic political cartooning paring up with todays video on demand. To have him explain his political thoughts while watching a masterpiece emerge and transform is thrilling. It is such a great use of the internet as a medium and it advances what age old political spoofing can be. Check out The Naked Campaign page for the videos.
thanks to christine for the pick-me-up!

Astro Boy, the robotic kid, is coming to theatres next year! This is one cartoon that is perfect for CGI.
I’m grateful to live in an era when I can ask a friend “What have you been up to?” and he can answer “Making a movie. Wanna see the trailer?” The short film, a surreal love story called Now and Nowhere, was made with a live actors in a CGI world. The preview left me hungry to see the whole thing and curious to know what other art projects are taking shape in garages all over the world.
George Lucas said that Revenge of the Sith would be the final Star Wars movie. Well, George Lucas is a liar. But he’s the good kind of liar! Because on August 15th, Star Wars will return to movie theaters in all new animated feature film, Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
I’ve already heard some complaints about the animation style. It is a far cry from Genndy Tartakovsky’s masterpiece but I, for one, love it. This still of Anakin Skywalker and his padawan, for example, reminds me of some of my favorite artists and illustrators.
