Let’s see what was. Toys, comics, and an excellent buffalo chicken wrap, that was the Zolocon 2023 Halloween Show in a nutshell. I should prefaced a nut allergy warning. But Zolocon is a cool collectible show with a lot of cool items, from a lot of great vendors.
Next we had a interesting show in a Medical Museum that was the Lancaster Heritage Medical Museum for an Arts and Craft show, a first time show put on at the Museum and it was a fine show, saw some wood, a section for quack medicine and a tooth key. Medical history had some crude roots and quack medicine and then to where it is today and the Museum has a lot of interesting history to see.
Now to where things are currently, I’m wrapping up the last several of the backgrounds for the TO12H project. I’m also working on a few more designs for the Ink spill line. There’s more in the works. Until next time. -bryan
Here we are again with another recap and update. I’m keeping it moving. There’s been another exciting few past events with Hell House Paracon and then to cap off the end of Septemeber we had a Block Party.
Hell House Paracon in Lehighton, Pa was an incredible experience. An iconic movie location seen in Hell House LLC., as well as haunted attraction known as the Waldorf Estate of Fear. This Paracon was a very intimate experience with a lot of growth potential and I look forward to seeing where it goes in the future and this was also where Chompsquatch made his first appearance in the wild.
The Opposite 12th Hour | TO12H has been moving forward at a steady pace. I’ve been going through the edit and working on adding Foley and other SFX elements. I’ve also been adjusting pacing for the final edit on a few shots and locking in on camera positions for export to use in the final animation. All backgrounds are in the final coloring stage and it’s really exciting to watch playback and to see the progress that’s being made.
Beyond TO12H and sitting behind a desk, I’ve started to take the show on the road. A quick retrospective on the two conventions that have happened and that was Paracon and Lehigh Valley Comic Convention | LVCC. Paracon was a great experience and just being able to setup a table and exhibit and meeting people and having the opportunity to do something like that was incredible. Pennhurst State School and Hospital grounds is truly historic there’s history in those walls and throughout the campus.
Let’s first start off with the backgrounds for episode 001 of TO12H | The Opposite 12th Hour. All of the hand drawn pencil, ink, and paper drawings are completed for the first episode 001 ECD | Egg Chicken Dragon. I’m looking forward to getting into the next phase of piecing all the art together and getting everything colored and applying motion. As of right now the world is created and it is finally to starting to feel complete even without all of the final animation the vision is there and the creation process is bringing everything to life and it does that.
Another really awesome bit of news is I’m taking the show on the road. Jabber Studio is headed to Spring City, Pa for Paracon 2023 on May 20-21. I’m looking forward to trying something new. To find out more about this event visit Pennhurst Asylum.
Growth and trying something new. I had made a mention in the previous post about the Intro Theme + Clip for The Opposite 12th Hour, but if you’ve haven’t watched it, it’ll only take a minute and let me know what you think.
The process and overall timeline, ended up working out well. I know personally the clip runs a bit short but to get out when I wanted, I had to compromise. I think it works fine as an actual sampling of things to come.
Over on Instagram I have been adding additional content and I will continue to post behind the scenes, and the continuing production photos and video over there. I want to go into the archive and see what sort of storyboard footage I can pull together.
Hello again. I am back with another update, this time it is about a new Creative Drive video. This Creative Drive looks into the breakdown and process that went into making the opening animation. I know the animation has been done for quite awhile, I just wanted to give some perspective on how it was made. So that’s what I did, have a watch I think it came looking fine.
Etsy? Yes indeed I have officially released the screen prints for The Opposite 12th Hour. The designs include the main logo graphic The Opposite 12th Hour, ECD | Egg Chicken Dragon, ULD | Uri Loves Donuts and the OPB | Onioodles Pop-up Box and there’s also a really cool TO12H acrylic pin over on the Etsy shop too, so check that out if you’d like. Setting up the Etsy shop has been something I’ve been looking forward to doing, if you like any of the items, the shirts are screen printed by hand by me. The pins were not made by me, but they were designed by me and so are the packing cards they are attached to.
One more thing of note is Instagram. I’m going to try and release more images and possibly some video over on the Instagram page. It definitely has been a very busy time and I think that is good. With this update I’d like to thank everyone who has seen The Opposite 12th Hour | TO12H Intro Theme + Clip “This is Horrible” and the other video of the side by side. Until next time. -bryan
