Artwork of the Day #3: Pennywise and His 'Kill Teeth'...

My drawing of Pennywise with his 'kill teeth' (and Georgie's raincoat) shown.

As mentioned in this previous entry, here is a drawing of Pennywise showing his "kill teeth"...which he used to lethal effect (obviously) in the hit movie It. The Dancing Clown is also holding Georgie's raincoat (but not his paper boat) in this pic, while lurking in his hellish lair that we saw towards the end of the film. Shown below is the work-in-progress photos of this artwork as well as the illustration that's featured in the post linked to at the beginning of this entry. Happy Monday!

Artwork of the Day #2: The Last Jedi's Elite Praetorian Guard...

My drawing of an Elite Praetorian Guard from STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI.

Just thought I'd share this drawing—plus its work-in-progress photos—of the Elite Praetorian Guard from Star Wars: The Last Jedi. I can't wait to see this First Order sentinel in action when Episode VIII hits theaters nationwide on December 15. Though hopefully, unlike the Imperial Guard that preceded it in Return of the Jedi and Revenge of the Sith, respectively, we'll see this red-clad sentry in a cool fighting scene. Those two Red Guards who get knocked down by Yoda before he confronts Darth Sidious in Revenge of the Sith does not count as seeing action! Happy Thursday, again.

Artwork of the Day: It's Pennywise the Dancing Clown...

Just thought I'd share this drawing that I completed this morning of Pennywise from the hit movie It. I was trying to hold off on posting this artwork since I plan to draw another more sinister illustration of the Dancing Clown (it's all about those "kill teeth") and simultaneously share that along with this one, but I'm impatient as heck. I also plan to illustrate an Elite Praetorian Guard from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which should be really fun as well. Good ol' Crayola markers. Anyways, Happy Thursday!

Director Ron Howard just announced this morning that next year's Han Solo spin-off flick will be titled Solo: A Star Wars Story. I'm down with it... It's brief and to the point. I preferred The Corellian: A Star Wars Story or Scuffy-Looking Nerf Herder: A Star Wars Story, but it's all good. At least the movie finally wrapped principal photography as of today, though I'm wondering when we'll see a teaser trailer for the film. Perhaps in front of Star Wars: The Last Jedi 58 days from now? Solo does get released to the world in about seven months, after all. It arrives in theaters nationwide on May 25, 2018—exactly 41 years after Star Wars: A New Hope opened to the public and made cinematic history. Carry on.

The theatrical poster for BLACK PANTHER.

Check out this awesome poster and the newest theatrical trailer for Marvel's Black Panther...out in theaters on February 16 of next year and once again featuring Chadwick Boseman as the armored catsuit-wearing superhero/King of Wakanda who kicked much ass in last year's Captain America: Civil War. I'd show screenshots of all of the amazing cast members who appear in this flick (such as Angela Bassett, Lupita Nyong'o, Martin Freeman, Andy Serkis and Michael B. Jordan), but the Black Panther suit is so badass that I had to show the best shots of it (plus the one worn by Erik Killmonger, the villain played by Michael B. Jordan) from the preview. Happy Monday!

STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI... The Final Poster and Trailer Are Here!

The final theatrical poster for STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI.

Just thought I'd share these images of the poster and final theatrical trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi...which were unveiled by Lucasfilm via social media and Monday Night Football on ESPN a few hours ago. These screenshots are only an inkling of the amazing visuals that will be presented in the eighth episode of the Skywalker saga—and don't do justice to the emotional moments featured in the 2-minutes, 34-seconds-long preview.

While piloting his sleek TIE Silencer, will Kylo Ren press the trigger and destroy the Resistance flagship that General Leia, his mother, is on? Will the raw power of the Force exhibited by Rey lead to her joining forces with Kylo at the end of the movie? Will the Battle of Crait (featuring AT-M6 AND classic AT-AT walkers) be as memorable as the Battle of Hoth from The Empire Strikes Back? Will the Porg, the penguin-like creature riding shotgun with Chewbacca aboard the Millennium Falcon during the movie, be as adorable as BB-8 and not a blatant cash-grab like the Ewoks or a pitiful attempt at comic relief a la Jar Jar Binks? And lastly, will Supreme Leader Snoke successfully torture Rey into getting her to submit to the Dark Side? (As Luke Skywalker says in the trailer: "This is not going to go...the way you think.") We'll see on December 15.

Though I, personally, will see The Last Jedi during an advance screening on December 14! (7:00 PM at the local AMC Theatre, to be exact.) Anyways, check out the trailer below these screenshots. And I hope you had a Happy Monday!
