Zombie In Love: The Musical!

IMG_5997

You guys, I had the incredible pleasure of visiting Portland to see the new Zombie In Love musical based on the picture book i illustrated with Kelly DiPucchio!  It was created and performed by the Oregon Children’s Theater and it was just so so good!  I could not believe it.  I had a little bit of tears about it i think.  And the songs were really catchy, you guys.

Marci Crowson, the director, was kind enough to take us on a little backstage tour prior to the show where we checked out stage miniatures and props.  I was super excited to see worm hand puppets!  After the show, we signed books for the kids and met the cast.  It really was so impressive and just so much fun, you guys.  I HIGHLY recommend checking it out!  It runs until March 23rd.

There were also a few local cartoonists invited to the show that evening to do some sketches inspired by the production: Mike RussellLucy Bellwood , and my buddy Graham Annable even did some sweet cartoons.  They are posting them somewhere.  i will find out and then add it to this post here.

I would like to share with you some photos of my visit and the play itself.  More of the professional production photos can be found HERE, if you are interested. And more from our visit can be found HERE.

Here are some of the professional photos of the production that i definitely did not take. They added school scenes and more build up of Mildred’s character and i loved it!  They also added the worms as narrators and moral support for Mortimer. Super cute. zombie_dance zombie_2130 zombie_1564R5xSc zombie_1331R5xSc zombie_0278 zombie_0088     Here is am with the director, Marci Crowson!     13069069575_91571a37b9_b     And here are the amazing leads Blake Peebles and Madison Wray… IMG_6089     Here’s Mildred’s room, you guys…. IMG_6022   The theater was real pretty as well. Reminded me of Shakespeare’s Globe theater, only not a globe shape… IMG_6013   They even had Mortimer’s zombie dog on his coffin couch! IMG_6012     Look at these cute mini sets Marci made for the production team…   IMG_6007 Here is the props table. Worm puppets, you guys!  Right there on the table!IMG_6003

France Trip!

I have just returned from the most amazing trip, you guys.  Spent the past week in Paris, visiting bookshops, meeting people and signing books!  I had just the best time.  Thank you, al of my French friends!  And thank you Cambourakis, for being such a great publisher!  I am excited to come back to France for future things like this.

Let’s check out some memories!

Here is the poster for Les Grands Duels Du Cinéma at the Cambourakis booth at Angouleme…

The old streets of Angouleme were such a splendid setting for a show.  I got distracted by the beautiful buildings though.  for the first few days.

IMG_5540 IMG_5548

 

This is the Chateau the Cambourakis got for all of us to stay in.  It was way out in the countryside and super beautiful to drive to.  They had chickens, you guys.

Oh, and Jean-Jaques and Diane Launier of Galerie Arludik gave me a tour of their new museum called Art Ludique!  There is a Pixar show there right now that got me real pumped up..

Scott C Holidays…

Hey, everyone!  It’s holiday season!  You are probably looking for gifts for your loved ones.  Well, i’ve got some ideas for you.  want to hear them?

Ok, here is the Scott C inspired list:

1.  GREAT SHOWDOWNS THE RETURN with foreword by Edgar Wright. $15. This will be so fun for everyone.  You can play the name the movie game during dinner or at some other family gathering.  Whether wearing your PJs or some sort of ball gown dress, this will be an enjoying time for you.

2. Great Showdowns book 1: $15 Or get the first book as well and make it a two pack holiday!  Double the family love.

3.  Double Fine Action Comics collections:  Volume 1 and volume 2 $20 each. If actual comic strips are more your speed then no problem.  These collections of those Double Fine comics will really get them pumped.  Many lessons to be learned from Knight, Muscle Man, and the two Spacemen.

4. If Dogs Run Free picture book – by Bob Dylan with pictures by Scott Campbell $18. Those kids that you know are probably super into dogs and also Bob Dylan, so this book might be right up their alley.  There are at least 200 dogs in this book.  Just going nuts.

5. PRINTS: Caring For Others“, “The Retreat“, “Sharing Time, and many others. Perhaps, your loved ones live in a place that has walls?  Those walls could use some sprucing up and these prints would do just that.  A good spruce up.  Whether they dig comic books or skeletons or olde timey people, there is probably something here that they will be way into.

6. Gallery Nucleus and Gallery 1988 also have all kinds of original Scott C paintings, prints, and merch that you might dig.  Or your loved ones might dig.

And that’s about it for now.  Enjoy your holidays, everyone!!  See you in 2014.
