7ft Tall Gundam Mark II Papercraft Destroys All Pants

I am sad to say, but Taras Lesko is a bigger Gundam fan that I am. With 720 sheets of paper, he crafted this 7ft tall RX-178 Gundam Mark II. Fortunately, he had the foresight to record the process and put together this amazing timelapse movie of the construction. There are a ton more photos and more videos over at Visual Spicer. If I wasn’t already married, I would seriously propose to the papercraft.

Of course, the next step has to be a full 1/1 scale papercraft of at least a Gundam head.

Thanks to Angry Zen Minions Nathan Yuen and Jana Hoffmann for sending this my way.

Rider Sessions — V3

It’s Double Typhoon time! Kamen Rider V3! Didn’t have time to record any new jams so this is the same track for the Nigo session. Not sure if I’m going to do Rider Man next or just get on with Kamen Rider X. Rider Man never had his own show and although V3 considers him to be Kamen Rider 4, he was only in a handful of episodes. Also, X is more badass than Rider Man. We’ll see.

LeSean Thomas’s Seoul Sessions Teaser Trailer

There are people who have big dreams and are content to leave them floating in the ether. And then there are those who grab those dreams in a fucking head lock and drag them kicking and screaming into reality. LeSean Thomas is one of the later. I’ve been following his career since his big break as a comic artist at Dreamwave to his stint as co-director and character designer of “The Boondocks.” Now he’s living in Korea working for a studio as an animation director, designer, illustrator, and, it seems, documentary film maker.

Seoul Sessions will follow the creative process of bringing his creator owned series Cannon Busters to life in 2D animation. You may remember Cannon Busters from a handful of issues published through UDON/Devil’s Due. There were rumblings about a full graphic novel in the works, but with LeSean’s busy schedule, it seems to have been put on the back burner. To hear that the series is making a return in animation is mind blowingly exciting and I can’t friggin’ wait. Yes, it’s great to see LeSean’s work on Boondocks and Black Dynamite and all those other properties that he’s lent his distinct flair. But nothing can match the energy and enthusiasm you feel when seeing something that sprung entirely from a creator’s own head. Cannon Busters was LeSean’s best comic work to date and I can’t wait to see more.

No word on when Seoul Sessions will properly start, but I’ll be keeping an eye out.

Rider Sessions – Nigo

Rider Sessions continue with Ichigo’s aniki, Kamen Rider Nigo! This time, with color! Two hours compressed into four minutes. The jam in the background is just something I came up with that I thought would help pass the time.

Makeshift Miracle, Chapter 1 Torrent Available

Jim Zubkavich wears his passion for comics on his sleeve. Which makes him perfectly suited for his job as Project Manager at UDON Entertainment. But it also gives him an insatiable desire to create comics.

He got his start as a webcartoonist with Makeshift Miracle, which we will return to in a bit. Jim took off his creator owned hat to try his hand at project management. Jim joined UDON Entertainment around the same time I did. It was clear, even then, that this man had an infinite capacity for comics love. At UDON, Jim’s overseen the production of artwork for countless clients in the comics, gaming, and movie industries. He’s also done his fair share of illustration for various clients when deadlines come a calling. Along the way, he also picked up a teaching gig at Sheridan College.

Working for clients like Marvel, DC, and Capcom is certainly a comic geek’s wet dream. But Jim started out doing his own thing so it came as no great surprise when, last June, he launched his creator owned fantasy project, Skullkickers, with Image (he hardcover edition of Volume 1 is now on sale. If you love fantasy comics that aren’t bogged down by overlycomplex bullshit, Skullkickers is for you).

In the world of comics, you can always go home. This past September, Jim returned to Makeshift Miracle, relaunching it once again as a web comic in collaboration with artist Shun Hong Chan. And it is absolutely gorgeous. Now if you’ve just heard of Makeshift Miracle and are worried about adding yet another comic to your webcomics list, have no fear. Jim has prepared a nice little torrent of chapter 1 that will get you all caught up in an easily digested, 22 page, PDF or CBR file. Grab the torrent, share it far and wide with all of your comic friends.

And keep an eye out for Jim Zub. I suspect we’ll be hearing a lot more from him in the future.

Meanwhile, in Taiwan…

I love how nonchalant the two people demonstrating AUO’s transparent display are as they navigate through the drink machine’s forest of animation. My pants would be on the floor and I’d be screaming like a maniac! This is fucking amazing! I mean, sure, it won’t make your drink taste much different. But at least you’d feel like you’re getting something for you $2.00 other than just a bottle of liquid diabetes.

Rider Sessions — Ichigo

Kamen Rider sessions begin with the one who started it all, ICHIGO! Once I figured out what the shit I wanted to do, this one turned out to be a lot of fun.

This is my interpretation of Ichigo escaping Shocker after he broke free from their mind control.

Oh, and that horrible music? Sadly, that’s me. I recorded an instrumental version of “Let’s Go! Rider Kick!”

And here’s the final product:
