my Frankenstein for the Mike Mignola Chiustream
as the lengthy title explains, this was my entry for the Mike Mignola contest that was on Bobby Chiu's Chiustream!
For those that don't know:
Bobby has a daily show on Ustream (and his schoolism site) where he draws live and chats with anyone that's logged in. Occasionally he interviews professional artists working in the industry. A topic is selected before the interview and the viewers are instructed to illustrate and submit their work to the schoolism site. Bobby then Twitters a time frame in which everyone can vote on all the submissions. The top 3 get sent to the guest artist who then chooses the winner. The prize is an original drawing created by the guest artist which is mailed to the winner! Be sure to check in with Twitter/Facebook to find out when to submit or you'll miss the voting deadline like I did with this one!!! AAAGH!!
sigh...ok ok..I'm back...
Bobby gets some big names on there. The list so far is character designer Stephen Silver(Kim Possible, Danny Phantom), comic book super star Alvin Lee(Streetfighter comics,Agent X, Darkstalkers etc), character designer Peter de Seve (Mulan,Tarzan,Ice Age etc) and Justin "Coro" Kaufman of Massive Black & Conceptart.org and most recently Mike Mignola of Hellboy fame!!!
For anyone that is interested in seeing the faces behind their artwork and to hear their thoughts I definitely recommend checkin out the Chiustream blog for more info :)
