Michelle Rodriguez wants you to read LAZARUS.
(Well, actually, I think she wants to play Forever, but, you know, the one could lead to the other…).
Mostly, I’m blogging this because it’s MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ and she likes our book! And that’s reason enough. So there.
I always need more of these dorks in my life
Visual Communications 4 project:
Character designs and Key frames presenting a redesign for Super Mario Bros. in which Princess Peach, aided by a mysterious Toadstool Merchant, sets off on an adventure to rescue Mario from the evil Bowser!
This project was a lot of fun for me! I wanted to really push myself with the shapes and proportions of characters and try a different style. Usually my work tends to be on the cutesy and conservative side so this time I wanted to make something a bit edgy and tongue-and-cheek. It was fun re-imaging a series that I’ve grown up with and finally giving Peach the spotlight. (We won’t mention the DS game they made for her….)
Thanks for playing!
IDW put up a preview for Windblade #3’s cover, so I figured it was cool for me to post the clean one!
"Not a perfect soldier, but a good man."
Steve Rogers may be a superhuman who could jump off planes without parachutes, but he’s also just a kid from Brooklyn.
Clark Kent may be a god who shoots fire from his eyes, but he’s also just a farm boy from Smallville.
"Make a better world than ours."
Steve Rogers, orphaned and frail and impoverished, who would speak up when nobody would, who would fight and claw at bullies twice his own size, who would throw himself over a rogue grenade to protect his comrades.
Clark Kent, lost and hated and rejected, who would risk exposure rather than stop helping people, who would let bullies punch him rather than hurt them, who would inspire his own tormentor because of kindness instead of bitterness.
They do not become Superman or Captain America because of that emblazoned S or that star-spangled shield. But because of who they are before the world gets to know them. Because of who they are since the very beginning of their stories, and who they have continued to be, despite all the struggles and difficulties.
