Phillip Graffham is curating a show at Van Eaton galleries in LA. He invited me to do a piece based on a Rankin Bass movie called Mad Monster Party.
I'd never seen it, but I Blu-Rayed it and peeped it on mah big screen.
It's BEAUTIFUL. Character designs are tits. I mean that in a few ways...
Story was well, era appropriately slow, but it's really fun to watch. Stop motion is a blast and I love the creepy yet happy looking characters in those sorts of movies. Everybody remembers the Christmas one, but this one is also pretty hotness.
I'll post up a preview now and drop the piece after the show commences.

No. It doesn't work.
