At long last-- EL SUPERBEASTO


Yes, that's right-- The long-in-the-making Rob Zombie cartoon flick I worked on so many years ago, THE HAUNTED WORLD OF EL SUPERBEASTO was finally released last month, so that means I can finally share my artwork from the film with you. (I've been sitting on this stuff for 3 years!)

Robot guy that I am, I got to do all the motorcycle transformation
gags for Murray. Except for the really dirty one--
that was Carey Yost.

Not sure what happened with the final Krongarr that's in the movie;
He looks like he was based on some of my earlier roughs...

Talk about fun: For the first few months my only assignment was to
draw a strip bar full of monsters getting drunk and having lap dances!

Most of this was all rough conceptual stuff; Never got the chance to
flesh 'em out, so you barely see them in the background of the final film.

Blink, and you'll miss these guys:



Dr.Satan's devil slave girl clones got cut early on.


Rob had us sprinkle the movie with in-jokes for his fans,
like Morris Green from "The Devil's Rejects"


Again, I'm not sure what happened to the final Lenny that's seen in the movie; It doesn't look like one of my drawings...

.......................

That's it for now; I've got more ESB stuff to share with you,
so check back later!

Hey Chris.
It's about time that you can post your artwork from the film. I did have fun working on that project with you and the other artists. To bad for some of the problems we had on the movie and the final cut.

Beautiful. And that's one classy E.T.!

I rented this back in October.

This was a great movie and I just wish it was released in theaters.
I thought this movie would be huge! Like Hollywood huge.

But it went straight to DVD.

I think El Beasto should have a sequel. It just felt so to be continued.

But I love it so, and all of my favorite artists were on it.
