"The UNDERTAKERS" Animatic




The animatic version of the Steve Martin story. When it comes to voice-acting I'm a king-size ham, and this one remains one of my favorite bits. Vincent Price and Peter Lorre are of course fun to imitate, but the dead sea salt was the most fun to perform (yes, I memorized the entire 'tale' for this performance).

I'll be uploading animatics with YouTube now, since Blogger can only have so many videos at a time.

A QUICK SHOUT-OUT





If you love storyboards (and you probably wouldn't be reading this blog if you didn't), then this is definitely a site you will want to check out.

The extremely cool Karen J Lloyd, storyboard expert extraordinaire and smarty-pants, runs one of the best sites around on the topic of storyboards; the art and business, and anything else you'd ever want to know, are all covered here. Lloyd offers her insights on the animation business in an informed and witty manner (and best of all, she's funny as hell) and also sends useful newsletters regarding what's going on in the industry or otherwise.

Karen's services include storyboard consulting for a reasonable fee (well, she's got to eat too, y'know!), so if you have something in the works it may just be worth your while to shell out a little petty cash and get some professional opinion and guidance on the matter. Hey, you can either have a crappy little flick or a polished, entertaining masterpiece of cinema guided by a woman who makes Tusken Raider noises (don't ask me...just read her blog!).

THE UNDERTAKERS pt 2







The second half of the story.

The morticians are based on Vincent Price and Peter Lorre (the corpse is, well, a corpse). Vincent Price seems to pop up a bit in my work for some reason, namely in my ZUDA comic Scarecrow Spookshow.

THE UNDERTAKERS pt 1







The first half of a storyboard project (rotten blog wont let me upload the whole thing in one post!), based on a short story by Steve Martin in his hilarious book Cruel Shoes.
