OH NO! (Or How My Science Project Destroyed the World)

Hey folks, I can't remember the last time I posted on here. It's been ages. Anyway, thought I'd share some new work on a picture book I completed and is out in bookstores starting today through Disney-Hyperion called "OH NO! (Or How My Science Project Destroyed the World)" Enjoy. http://www.dantat.c...

I'm doing a graphic novel right now and it's quite the long daunting (but rewarding) task. I now make most of my income illustrating children's picture books and writing/illustrating my own picture books. I can't say this would have been possible 4 years ago but now I can get a pretty sizeable advan...

Elevator Action and Barbarella

So I'm involved in a couple gallery shows here in LA. This Thursday is the I Am 8-Bit show and I did "Elevator Action". I was a huge fan of this game and I thought a pulp movie spy poster would honor it well. The other show is Crazy 4 Cult 2 at Gallery 1988 (opening night is August 22nd) and that fe...

HAHA Oh god! If I showed this to my son he would just cry his little heart out. As for Cars, I can't say it's my favorite Pixar film but it's my son's absolute fav and after watching it over 100 times easily I'm actually not sick of it so I guess it's not all that bad. Seeing your child's excitement...

Great stuff. I love the old man's arms lifting the rock.

Also, congrats on your piece getting into Communication Arts this year. I hope it brings more work, though, it never had for me when I got in.

I don't think you can really go wrong with David Fincher directing a feature. I've pretty much liked everything he's done. Even Panic Room.

Great movie! I've seen it three times already. I guess this is MY Speed Racer of the year. I personally think it will have a good run against Wall-E (presumably) for the best animated film Oscar this year. I don't think this is a spoiler by any means but I thought one of the greatest lines in the fi...

Woody- Thank you so much for spotting that typo. I'm pretty bad about that stuff. Right now my graphic novel at Scholastic is an open deadline. They wanted to shoot for a release for Fall of next year but there's no way that's gonna happen. Depending if my editor can get moving then possibly fall th...

Character Designs

Here are some character designs I've been working on for a personal project. I was never really strong with drawing females so I spent some extra time on them.

If there are Downey Jr. fans out there I can't stress enough that you should all rent KISS KISS, BANG BANG. Val Kilmer is also in it and he's also really good.

I agree, great movie. I wasn't too sure Favreau was going to do well with the action genre but he nailed it. Speaking of nailed it, Downey Jr. seemed like he was born for this part.

Too early to say if the game play gets too old. Though I will say that the whole dynamic of getting into relationships and maintaining them by periodically going on dates gets a little trying at times, but now you have to also maintain friendships with your friends. Can't say about the consequences ...

I have to agree. Allow me to take a moment to rant and add a few points. I'm about 10 hours into it and these are my observations.... In a nutshell, if you want to see a game that has covered almost every detail with a fine tooth comb then I recommend you get this game. To me it feels less like a ga...
