Originally I designed this series to be a SDCC exclusive back in 2012, hence all of the Simpsons style superheros. Kid Robot and FOX decided to put it on the back burner and released it for the 25 Years celebration... I'm just happy it came out, but I really wanted to do a SDCC exclusive with Kid Robot each year... we'll you never know, they never release all of my designs, so only time will tell.
Well here it is... the 2nd series of the Kid Robot Fututrama design by me and Sean Millard... I have to say working with Sean is too easy.... I think we should REALLY do our own stuff.... I'm just saying. :)
You can say I had a really busy 2016 summer and they're still more to come. I was so stoked to work on this project. Working with Rusty, Buff Monster and UNi was NOT a dumpster fire, which most would think when it comes to doing a colab with three partners, yes we had a little back and forth, but at the end it was pretty simple and we did some cool stuff.
Well, here it is... the Minion Classic Monsters colab that was hosted by BAIT at the 2016 SDCC . The project was a mix of different ideas and what it came to what we could produce in the short timeline; plus keeping the quality at a level that everyone was happy with. We decided to focus on Franken Bob with Zombie Teddy Bear Tim and tease a couple of other designs in the world of Minion Monsters. I may or may have not done more Minion classic monster designs and other skateboard graphics.... hint, hint, hint! I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
The question giving to me by thge SVP of Marketing at Illumination Entertainment was how do you show Minions in history... Answer, through classic paintings of famous artists works, be it Leonardo da Vinci's painting, Andy Warhol-inspired pop art, mind-bending Salvador Dali imagery and more daft homages to Piet Mondrian, Vincent Van Gogh, Edvard Munch, René Magritte, Roy Lichtenstein, Jackson Pollock and Pablo Picasso. We did different takes for the campaign, one was to see the Minions in the back ground of classic painting and the 2nd was to have the Minions as the main focus of ther classic styles.
