A Lucky One, SLIMS PREMIERE! Baggage Claim at The New Parkway
Hot off the presses! A Lucky One, my new animated Western for The Sam Chase song is premiering at SLIMS in S.F., preceding their live show.
I always like to treat my music video collaborations with like mini cinema epics, and this one holds back no power. I can’t wait to share it and overjoyed that we’ll be able to give it a big screen introduction. Friday, March 14th. Hope you can make it. For tickets go to http://tickets.slims-sf.com/evinfo.php?eventid=392405
The following weekend on Sunday March 23rd, Murder Dollhouse classic, BAGGAGE CLAIM will screen at The New Parkway Theater in Oakland during the I HELLA LOVE SHORTS Film Fest. I like to think of Baggage Claim is a hidden gem in the Animated Noir-Dark Comedy Bio-pic world, and can’t wait to show it to some new eyes.
I’ll be attending both events so come have a beer with me and enjoy the good times at the movies !
New Zine, New Shirt!
Just got back from LA Zinefest where I premiered 2 new items. I had an awesome time down there, saw many familiar faces and greeted may new ones as well. Both of the new items did really well and now they are available at out online giftshop.
18 Levels of Hell (NEW BOOK)
With the second volume of Murder Dollhouse books I went in a completly new direction, recalling something that terridied me when I was a young kid. I remember going to a HELL museum in Japan and seeing life sized depictions of Hell, each room with it’s own theme.
As an adult I was researching different culture’s ideas of the after life and the one that facinated me the most was the DIYU Hell, in which there are 18 different levels, each with it’s own set of sins and punishment.
This book serves as a guide to each of these 18 levels, a description of the sin and the punishment that will follow. Each level is drawn in detail with a spread-illustration totaling 36 pages of art. Due to the subject matter, I was able to convey for fantastical elements than in my other books and dip into my Asian roots more than I have before.
HELICOPTER CAT (new Shirt!)
I finally stepped up and made a shirt. For my first design I decided to go inspirational. I couldn’t think of anything more inspirational than the creation of a remote controlled Helicopter-Cat. Some people criticized the real life pet lover who taxidermied his expired cat into a mobile flying machine. But I respect his creatvity and am happy to live in a world that has enough room to include a Helicopter-Cat.
All shirts are white with classy black line art and currently available in Medium and Large. Unfortunately Smalls are currently SOLD OUT but might become available again with demand.
Check them both out at the new gift-shop section, powered by webmaster Derek Wood!
I recently completed a new music video epic for The Sam Chase so look forward to some high action Western coming your way. In the meantime I’m going to get started on some new projects I am excited about… See you soon hopefully!
See you at LA Zinefest!
New News for 2014
Hot news, straight from the Murder Dollhouse site, now under new hosting, webmaster Sheriff Derek
Hi. Now this site is under a new server, that of my friend Derek Wood (who constructed this site). So thanks to him for hosting us. I feel better already.
2014 is off to a good start. Got some things going on.
Thursday January 16th is the opening of a group show I am in, The Hole. It’s curated by my friend Lady Beaver and is at EXHIBIT S in Sacramento.
I will be unveiling my massive new piece, The 18 Levels of Hell. It’s a biggie, I’m been clocking tons of hours on it and it should look really sweet on the wall. I’ll try and do a good job of photographing it.
I will be heading down south in February for La Zine Fest with table pals Deth P. Sun and Evan Fan- Urnlid Ledfish . Hoping to have a new zine to show. If I can make what I want to, it should be a really cool thing.
Animation wise, I got a really cool new music video I’ve been working on for Sf Band, The Sam Chase. Again a new genre for Murder Dollhouse films to explore. Excited about it, I got some cool new tricks to show off. It’s a really good song and it’s a fun one to create images for. New territory in mood and drama. It will be fun to put along with the other music videos, primarily Still Life and Green Blood because those are both genre heavy in intention. Ghost Story and urban Sci Fi. This one is Western with a touch of dark magic.
And for our own projects. Well I got a new direction in mind for 2014. And I think it’s a pretty exciting one. Something for everyone, and something that will challenge me to put my skills to the test. Best of all, It’s going to be really funny. People who read my comics will find some characters from within those pages will new life. It’s gonna be rad. It will be a new direction for the great Murder Dollhouse actors too… Somthing new for the year.
Ok, that’s all for now. See you soon
