Hey folks! Just a reminder that commissions are still open
at this time! The queue is small right now, so you won't have to wait long for me to draw your picture of choice.
Besides, you wouldn't want l'il old me to go hungry this month, eh?
This past week has been a drawing frenzy. I tend to listen to a lot of audiobooks while I work because I find the long playback keeps me focused. The last one I listened to is "Ready Player One", the debut novel of Ernest Cline.
I was perusing Steven Spielberg's filmography when I noticed that he and John Williams were collaborating on a film adaptation of this book for 2018. Curious, I decided to check out the audiobook (read by Star Trek actor Wil Wheaton) and found it had a popular fan base. This book is awesome! It's essentially a MMORPG adventure through all the video games, movies and pop culture of the 80's. The author throws in a number of challenges for our hero based on classic arcade titles, Atari 2600, John Hughes films and even the super sentai shows from Japan. The story is rife with giddy nostalgia and fan service, presented in the form of "the greatest video game of all time". I'm sure it will made a spectacular film if only the licenses can be secured for the dozens of copyrighted material the author uses in his story. That strikes me as the biggest obstacle. But with Spielberg and Williams on board, I'm super-excited for the result.
Be sure to check out Ready Player One!
Also, don't forget that tomorrow is the 'big day' that I've teased about
for months. Remember to check my gallery! Here's a final sneak peak....
