"Survivors of Cheron" (Bele & Lokai).

Here's a piece I just just wrapped up last night for this months Planet Pulp monthly themed show... This months theme (I'm sure some of you super cool geeks out there will have guessed) was "Star Trek"

Those who know me well will know I'm an Original Series man, so naturally, that's where I went.

These two characters are redesigns of "Bele" & "Lokai", from the episode #15, season 3 show: "Let that be your Last Battle field"... Originally titled "A Portrait in Black & White", (which I prefer),  Bele & Lokai are two alien beings from the war-torn planet "Cheron"... Bele, a law enforcer (who is played by the ever animated Frank Gorshin), has been in pursuit of Lokai (Lou Antonio), a refugee/ rebel on the run from oppression, for 50,000 years (Earth years, to be precise), for "political crimes"... The episode ends with the two being completely consumed by their unending feud of racial ignorance & mutual hate towards one another.

Watch the full episode here.


*** Interview with the Insider ***

Hi everyone. Sorry it's been a little while since I've posted here; as always commercial work eating into most of my free time... No complaints though, good to keep busy!

I meant to post this here sooner, but here's my recent interview with the awesome Animation insider.
I'd like to thank Mike Milo for reaching out with the invitation; was a lot of fun to do! I hope you guys enjoy reading it & find some of it helpful.

Pitch Work...

Here's a bit of artwork I did last year which contributed towards a pitch for something for HBO... I don't think it was used though, so hopefully no one will come after me. Can't say too much about it, but if I had time, & it was part of the brief, I'd have loved to have added some typographic treatment to this.
