The Greatest Movie EVER! (UPDATED OCT 1ST 2014!)

One of my favorite podcasts to listen to while I'm animating/sketching/etc. is The Greatest Movie EVER! Podcast, hosted by Paul "Gooberzilla" Chapman and a rotating cadre of co-hosts. No film is too obscure, schlocky or Nicholas Cage-y for discussion.

In 2011, Chapman put out an open call on Twitter for a banner for a theme month he was planning called Eldrich Horrors. Given by the title, you can probably surmise that the focus was around films inspired by H.P. Lovecraft. But Gooberzilla had specific guidelines that the banner had to follow. I jumped at the challenge and this was the result...

Chapman loved the submission and applied it to the episode posts on his website. But as you'll see after the break, this wouldn't be the last time I would apply my talents for the Almighty Gooberzilla...

Guru Larry's Retro Corner!

One of my earliest online projects was developing graphics for British gaming personality, "Guru" Larry Bundy Jr. Initially, they were for a video series known as Guru Larry's Retro Corner, which served as bite-sized retrospectives on video games of yesteryear. These usually consisted of taking photographs of Larry (and occasionally his gaming compatriot, Wesley Lock) and merging them with other graphics representative of the games in question ala Terry Gilliam's Python animations.

Below are many of the title cards I developed for the show (and if you are interested in watching said show, then you can click HERE)

More cards after the break....
