below is the list of submissions, nominees, call them what you will in our "cast the perhapanauts movie" challenge. since this was just for fun, just among ourselves, i'm not gonna press for a final list to laminate and keep in our pockets--i think it's cool just seeing who thought what. this way no one who participated--or the actors that they chose--will have their feelings hurt. 'cause that's what i'm all about.
however if, when they do make the movie, they use all of the suggestions I chose...?
perhapanauts casting call
CGI with the voice of
CGI with the voice of
Angus T. Jones
however you mix them up, it looks like it'd be a great movie!
as for something new to talk about, i guess it's no surprise that with the trade coming out in a couple of weeks and the new series launching right on the heels of that, craig and i have been pretty much eating, breathing, and sleeping perhapanauts lately. not to let the momentum slow down even in the slightest, a month or so ago, craig commissioned a friend of his, andrew wiernicki, to do a sculpture of everybody's favorite goatsucker, the choopie.
andrew has done some truly stunning work, which you can glom at www.andrew3d.com and has kept craig (and me!) abreast of the progress as he's brought our choopie to three-dimensional life! take a look!
amazing, right?! andrew has also done characters from brian michael bendis and michael avon oeming's "powers" and from mike oeming's "hammer of the gods" which can be seen at his site, as well as superman, kamandi, and the hulk! all of which look SO COOL!
needless to say, as soon as i saw andrew's incredible work on choop, craig and i started dreaming about having him do the whole team and the possibility of having casts made to make them available to everyone. unfortunately, it's kinda pricey unless you're doing, like, a LOT of them. so i guess, if you're really, really gonna want one and you don't want it to be super expensive, get more people to read the perhapanauts. that way more people will want the statues and they won't cost as much.
oh, and here're some more pictures as andrew got farther along.
i'll be posting photos of the progress and the process as choopie comes to life!
great job, andrew! thanks!
smell ya later!
