Austin Translation Sketchbook

That's right, this blog is becoming a book! Just in case you wanted to pay for what you're doing for free right now. These are the proofs hot off the presses from Edition One Books, who printed my friend Dani's book, Round Robin. I'll be doing a limited run of 200 copies, available exclusively at Trickster.

For those of you who haven't heard about it, Trickster is an art gallery and retail space specializing in creator-owned wares including small run and limited edition books, fine art prints, toys, clothing, etc. 

As you can see, Trickster is located directly across the street from Comic Con at the SD Wine and Culinary Center, and will be open late into the night after the Con has closed. So you can finally have a drink with that Leia in the gold bikini that you lost in the Hall H crowd.

Other Trickster exclusives include the official Trickster compendium (cover by the incomparable Mike Mignola):

The book features art from professional animators, comic artists, and illustrators, all contributing their take on the "trickster" theme. I examined the hoax-trickster in my piece, "The Boy Who Cried Nessy".

Finally, making it's debut at Trickster will be the loooong-awaited Afterworks 3 (cover by the astounding Lou Romano).

Which will feature my short story, Terrordactyl:

Afterworks 3 will be hitting comic stores everywhere in August, but the Trickster and Austin Translation books will be limited run Trickster event exclusives, so make sure to swing by San Diego and pick up your copy!

I'll be there Friday and Saturday, but Trickster is open Tuesday July 19th to Sunday July 24th. So stop by and say howdy!

Addendum Saturday July 9th, 2011:

My friend Jeff posted this on facebook, and I just had to share.

Todd insisted on sharing a booth, and who am I to say no to the creator of Spawn?

I don't want to give away the rest of the story, so for the rest of our little friend's adventure, you'll have to check out Afterworks III, which will be available in paperback and digitally through the Whamix app. If you want to meet me and all the other Afterworks contributors in person, follow the TR!CKSTER, he knows the way

Game of Thrones premiered last night, and I couldn't have been more impressed. A solid adaptation with fantastic casting. My friend Jason hosted the premier party, and I represented the river gingers of House Tully.

With a trout as your house sigil, you're kind of obligated to bring Steelhead and fish tacos to the party.

Available this Summer in paperback through Afterworks III and digitally through the Whamix app. Next Monday, page 5: "Jurassic Parkour"

I'm more excited than ever for Afterworks III to hit the shelves after this weekend's WonderCon. Let me tell you, it was a wretched hive of scum and villainy. And these are my kind of scum.

My dad and I had an Imperial entanglement after trying to bootleg some footage of Cowboys and Aliens, which rocked the audience's socks off.

Thor fans or LARPers? Either way, these are my people!

The highlight of the day was meeting Elvira. Maybe there's still time to get her t-bird a cameo in Cars 2 and have her come in to do the voice!

It's no secret that I am the real Batman. Need evidence? Here I am with the original Catwoman, Lee Meriwether.

Lee as everyone's favorite cat-burglar. She looks purrr-fect, doesn't she?

The hotness continued with girls of Femme Fatales. I have no idea what the show is about, but I'm already a fan.

Some Pixarians enjoying a break from the nerdiness.

At the end of the day, I considered joining the League of Calamitous Intent.

But why serve a Monarch, when you can rule as one?

While we're on the topic of sneak peaks, there's a new article at EW on Pixar's upcoming film, Brave. I just wrapped animation on Cars 2 last week, so this is the next project on my plate and I couldn'a be happier abou' it (as the Scots would say)! Alba gu brath!

"Anyone else hear that? That's a, ah, that's an impact tremor, that's what it is....I'm fairly alarmed here." -Dr. Ian Malcolm

That's right, Dr. Malcolm, you should be alarmed. Because Afterworks III is coming. Starting this Monday I'll be posting a page a week, so stay tuned, dino-lovers!

AfterWorks Preview III
Coming to ComicCon 2010.

A project that feels like it's been 65 million years in the making. I remember Justin Wright letting me use his computer after hours to work on this comic back in 2008. For various reasons, AfterWorks III kept getting pushed back, and I'm one of those artists who needs a deadline to get anything done, so I never quite finished. My creative juices are pumping again, though, and I'm determined to have this puppy done for this year's Comic Con. Stay tuned for more previews!

Here's a sneak peek at my contribution to E-ville Press's Afterworks Volume 3. Afterworks is a graphic novel comprised of short comics made by a bunch of Pixarians in their free time. From what I've seen of everyone's stories, it promises to be a pretty sweet collection. Before I ever wanted to be an animator, I wanted to be a comic artist and a paleontologist. This project is definitely an outlet for those two passions. After ten years of repression as I focused on my animation, my inner comic geek and dino nerd will finally have their day!
More art coming soon...
