Let's contribute to the economy, shall we?

The GREEN LANTERN: FIRST FLIGHT DVD is now in stores! Since I'm a cartoony guy, I rarely get the chance to work on action-adventure stuff, but last year I got to have some fun doing designs for all the alien weaponry for DCU's latest animated film:



My guns about to contribute to some serious mayhem.




My contribution is small, but the real draw here is the amazing work of artists like Jose Lopez, LeSean Thomas, and director Lauren Montgomery. Go get it, and while you're at it, get last year's WONDER WOMAN, too; It kicks ass.

My pal Nina Paley's self-produced, multi-national-award-winning film SITA SINGS THE BLUES is finally available on DVD! While you can download the film for free, why not support indie animators like Nina and get a real, tangible record of her solo animated film? Go to Amazon.com and BUY IT!!

... and CORALINE is out on DVD & Blu-Ray, too! A bunch of my pals worked on this, and the results are spectacular. It even comes with a buncha 3D glasses! Buy this one, too.

I'm hard at work on my first ever papercraft art piece for a group show next month, so I should be able to give you all a sneak peek by the end of this month!

I've been looking forward to the GL flick, too. I'll be closely watching any scenes with gunplay. ;)

Great designs Chris. Did you use any software, or did you do it the old fashioned way?

Chris Battle said...

Just pen & ink and some rulers & french curves!

Nice! I can't wait to see that papercraft too. That whole world interests me, but for some reason I've never gotten around to trying to design one. I blame society.

your contribution may seem small but its all part of the big picture.

Cant wait to see GL when I get home!

Those weapons are the most important part of the show! You made me arm up all my nerf guns.

Ryan Green said...

Hey dude. Post a link to the papercraft show for my ease of viewing! I wanna see ALL your stuff! And post more often! I have spoken.

Chris Battle said...

Mitch- Stupid society! Your eventual violent public meltdown will be completely justified.

Serapio- Normally I'd say Nerf guns are no match for GL, but those darts are yellow...

Kyle- The flyer just became available! Check it out HERE.
