The Coker CoOp is now Live

After a year away from the blog, I finally have something worthwhile to share!

Shof, Funlola and I have started a little operation of sorts, called Coker CoOp. I hesitate to use the word "company" right now, at the moment it's basically a place where we can focus our collaborative efforts, talk about our process and let folks know what we're working on. Stuff like comics, videogames, statues, jewelry etc based on the ideas that we've come up (including stuff from the Jonahverse) with will go up there.

Some of the stuff will be free, and some of it for sale eventually. It's the biggest and most ambitious thing we've worked on yet, and it's still in its infancy, but we've got grand plans and we sure hope you'll come along for the ride :)

Oh! And Merry Christmas to you all ;)

Time to do some world-building

A couple of months ago Shof put up a blog post with a sample of some concept art he'd created for a TV show called Ekologue that we pitched to an African TV network. We worked on a show bible, and had been discussing ideas for the first season. For a while it looked like things might take off, but in the end the project never really got off the ground (there's still some hope though).

Lately I've been thinking I might go back and expand the bible, maybe flesh out the first season's story arc a little more and flesh out the characters. If the show never gets backing for traditional TV, who knows, perhaps we could look at broadcasting on the 'Net? I've been thinking about drawing from videogames for inspiration, things like Minecraft, Dishonored and a few others.

Should be a fun time, if you'd like to see more of Ekologue, I recommend having a gander at Shof's blog post.

It's strange...

Arsenal just lost at home to Liverpool for the first time in over a decade, my team is probably the most vulnerable it's been in 15 years. It's been a long, long week, and yet I feel pretty darn pleased with myself right now. G'night everyone :)

Light, Sweet Crude

For about a year and a half now I've been working with Shof and a mutual friend named Chris Feliciano Arnold on a new comic adaptation, a political thriller called Light, Sweet Crude. Last week we were able to get the first 8 pages together and show the comic off at Comic Con (by we, I mean Shof and Chris, I stayed put in Manila).

If you'd like to have a closer look and flip through the first 8 pages, you can do so here. Chris wrote the story and script, adapted from a short story he wrote and got published in Playboy in 2009. Shof did all the art, and I'm doing consultation on the project.

I discovered today...

... that you get to a certain age, and wearing a baseball cap backwards just looks wrong.

I do it anyway.

That time of year again...

... now I get to start watching Star Trek: TNG over from season 1. It's been about a year since I've gone through the show in sequence and I'm so excited!

I wonder whether...

I was looking around my apartment today at my action figures (Superman, The Thing, Asterix, Obelix, Conan), and I had to wonder whether a girl walking in and seeing them littered about experienced the female equivalent of what I do when I walk into a girls room and see Cabbage Patch Dolls and My Little Pony's adorning the landscape.

Still, they don't make My Little Pony's as awesome as this, do they!? Someone HOLD ME!
