From the vaults – Me and Steely Joe

I found this Polaroid of me with the full-scale costume of Steely Joe, which I designed for ‘The Secret Adventures of Jules Verne’ back in 1998. This was at Texa FX in Montreal where all the creatures and prosthetics were made. They did incredible work for the show. I didn’t realize at the time that it was the first real steampunk television series, and it was my introduction to the genre which I love so much. What a trip it was, walking on sets and seeing life-sized versions of my designs. I had the pleasure of going through that experience on more movies later, but this was my first big production and I put my all into it.

Robot Punch!

Busy busy. I’ve been at Warner Bros Games for a year already, on the project-that-shall-not-be-spoken-of-yet. In the meantime I’ve been moonlighting on a couple of fun ventures. Robot Punch is a small start-up  t-shirt company in Winchester Ontario created by my friend Jeff Peto. He’s the son of my high school buddy James. To help get the business off the ground, I designed the logo, as well as their first run of t-shirt images. They had their launch at the Ottawa Comicon and it went very well. Here’s a link to the Facebook page to see the shirts in print:
