"The Warehouse" - Episode 30 - Softer Material

This week is all about new merch and new versions of old merch.

Matt G tells you all about the fancy pants new shirts (hahahahooo) that DFTBA designs will be printed on (softer, more form fitting, nicer!) plus shows off DFTBA’s newest releases.

If you’re a person who prefers ladies cut shirts, you best head on over to dftba.com soon to pick up any shirts you want but do not yet own because, as Matthew says in the video, from this point on, shirts will only be printed in unisex sizes.

I was injured recently and ended up spending a lot of time in bed… So I went ahead and redid one of my older posts.
I like to marathon hank games when I’m bedridden.

The Great Goose Migration

I’m not even joking…this video is actually about me and my wife going to the Rocky Mountain Front to observe migrating geese and I AIN’T EVEN SORRY!

The Music is a song by The Leewards that was never released to the public. They’re a band that a friend of mine was in from 2001 to 2005, you can get their second album on Bandcamp for free (or pay for it, because it’s great http://leewards.bandcamp.com/.) This song was on their first album, which was never released so, like, only a few dozen people have ever heard this song before.

And now, because of this video, HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of people will hear it! That’s REALLY WEIRD!

I find it very strange that there is so much wonderful music in the world that no one will ever hear again….just lost…forever…like a goose in the wind. ALL WE ARE IS GEESE IN THE WIND!

So Jokes (Accio Deathly Hallows Edition) by FakeJohnGreen
HEY ALL! A week and a half is all the time we have left to collect signatures on the petition asking Hank Green to Vlog Accio Deathly Hallows Every Day in April (VADHEDA) (because, you know, then it will be April).
So far, almost 400 of you have lent your names and voices to the cause, and that is awesome, but we need MORE SIGNATURES! Help get the word out, y’all. Persuade Hank to sing the same song 30 times.

PUFF LEVELS ARE HIGH, but the cause is pure excitement!
I received today my P4A perk today, my/John’s shirt! You can’t see the whole certificate because I’m poop at taking photos, but oh well. I’m torn between wanting to wear it every day and never ever touching it again. I guess I’ll put it on for special occasions. Or I might start a “John shirt around the world” tag; I’d obviously start with the Guggenheim museum, since it’s in Bilbao, my hometown, and I reckon it is a place John (and specially Sarah) would like to visit but probably won’t anytime soon…
DFTBA!

TFiOS Visual Development, Part 1: Hazel and Gus character model sheets

After weeks of ceaseless toil, here it is, the first part of my personal project, a visual development portfolio for a hypothetical animated version of John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars!

Okay, before I proceed, I’d like to offer a disclaimer: I am not related to the animation industry in any way, even though I’d kill to be. Instead, I am an architecture student in Malaysia who is partial to artistic endeavours not necessarily related to my chosen profession. Therefore, there are probably plenty of inadequacies and errors in the above pieces, but please understand that this is a labor of love, so cut me some slack, ‘kay? Secondly, I think of this project of mine as a thought exercise, so I am basically drawing the characters as I see them in my own head, not as likenesses of the actors in the upcoming movie. Third of all, TFiOS is the intellectual property of John Green, and so on.

Now that that’s out of the way, a bit of commentary on the above character model sheets. I was really inspired by the work of the fantastic Jin Kim and Glen Keane, so you may see some influences here, even a few borrowed expressions, but again, cut me some slack, re: not related to the animation industry in any way. I scoured the book from cover to cover to get the characters as close to the descriptions as possible, so I gave Gus “messy, straight hair, sweeping down over his forehead” (Chap. 7), as well as “a hell of a jawline” (Chap. 1). Hazel has her pageboy haircut and her “ridiculously fat chipmunked cheeks”. I wanted to let their faces contrast each other, so Gus’s face is angular while Hazel’s is softer and rounder. I also tried to capture their personality in these model sheets. Gus is rakish and exudes confidence, so I made his expressions more extravagant and exuberant, whereas Hazel, who “walks upon the earth lightly”, has slightly more subdued expressions. The last sheet is my own headcanon, since I’m sure their exact heights aren’t mentioned in the book, but you’re free to imagine otherwise.

That’s all I have to say, so constructive comments and critiques are welcome. I’ll be working on hand studies and Hazel-Gus interactions next, so stay tuned.
