Well, my friends, it's that time.  If you've been following me on FB or even casually on the blog here you've probably heard me mention the Ottawa International Animation Festival a few times.  Zee Risek, owner of Flying Iguana Animation Inc., is going to be pitching the BRAINEATER JONES animated series for the next few days.  In fact, for all I know, he may be pitching it right this second.

Okay.  Well.  The fun news for you guys is I've seen the final pitch packet.  And it's a whopper.  I've already posted some of the preliminary sketches here and some of the finished work here.  Here are the last few pieces of art that you've never seen before.  If you still haven't and you've never heard me make this plea before, please consider leaving a review for BJ here so that Zee will have an easier time selling a well-reviewed product.  Godspeed, Zee!  And thanks for all your support, everybody!

This splash page originally contained Zee's contact info, but I'm guessing he doesn't want me splashing his cell phone all over the internet.  Or maybe he does?  Doesn't matter.  We're all about to blow up anyway and then we won't be able to beat off the Paparazzi with sticks.
Kumaree Tong, the femme fatale.  I like how she's smoking.  In the book she smokes (SPOILER ALERT!) Chesterfields.  You can also see on her arm where the makeup is sort of rubbing away.

Lazar (aka Russ, aka Forday, aka aka aka etc.) the ultimate huckster.  Come on, don't you just trust that what he's selling you is legit?  Just look at how earnest he seems!


  1. Very cool! Fingers crossed for you, guys!

    1. Thanks, Leandra! I've got...hiiiiiigh hopes, I've got...hiiiiiiiiiiiigh hopes...

  2. This is amazing, Stephen! I'm sending you good vibes and keeping my fingers crossed.

    1. Thanks so much, Becky! We actually just got an exciting e-mail tonight so I really hope your good vibes work. :)
