I'm so happy...this is pretty cool. Chad Hurd (the lead character designer for the animated series
series Archer on the FX network) drew this up for me. I love it. For those of you who don't know the show, it's an over-the-top secret agent series for adults... it's brilliant, and so wrong, on so many levels. Archer's Mom, the head of the agency, likes absinthe. The fairy is a tiny green version of the show's dumb as a stump and ever-disgusting office worker Amber. The complete opposite of what a green fairy should be...too funny. I sent Chad some samples of the good stuff a couple weeks ago, which were enjoyed by friends at the studio from what I'm told.

Here's Archer's website for fun, if you're interested:

That's awesome! I nearly puke all over myself with laughter every time I watch it.

The fairy looks a lot like Pam .... ?

Yikes! I meant Pam. Amber is the actress who plays her!

Being the founder of the Lock Haven Legends rugby club, I thought I'd ask if Chad could personalize mine for me. This is what he came up with.

Then, since I know Doyle is a huge fan of Archer and is also a past National Champion in Karate, Chad put this one together for him. Love them!

Cool Brian! I'm glad it worked out! Chad did both of ours in storyboard-art style, which is the real thing,
in the hand of the designer. This is the same manner in which he does the production sketches for the show.

Storyboard style or not, Brian's look pretty real to me. And pretty prettay sweet.

A little technological fix to a spiritual problem.

This kind of hand-drawn art, by the designer himself, is so much better than the glossy, produced "animation art" that is so common. I was a producer/director/animation artist for 12 years in New York, and we used to laugh when all the animation cels would be put on the market; the vast majority were not even real production art, and the few that were, were often touched-up and repainted to be more marketable.

This is what I mean about "real," as these are made by the artist himself, in a genuine, liberated, and whimsical way. The old-time Disney, Fleischer Bros, and Walter Lantz studio animators I knew would draw up funny scenarios as quick give-aways to folks, in a rough sketchy way from time to time. I always felt this was the best and most genuine stuff. Nearly all these guys have passed now, and young guys like Chad are carrying the torch.

Cool touch getting yourself in the picture Brian! Is Doyle your brother?

Nope, just a friend and rugby buddy from college. But we get that a lot.

:worshippy: :worshippy: :thumbup:
I've always been a fan of animation, and with my kids I get more of it. I don't know xit about it, but I love the animation in Dumbo & Les Aristochats (we keep watching the French version on the DVD). I thought Destino was a pretty neat 'collaboration' between old and new artists, considering the 58 years between begining to release.

Archer is one of the few good things to come out of Atlanta.

Love the show, unfortunately Kathy doesn't feel the same way, but the verbal interaction if we watch it together is humorous in itself.

Anyone watch last night?

Pam had a thermos full of "green russian" which she said was absinthe and milk (sounds ill) but I thought it was cool that they threw some in there.

:cheers:

Great episode last night too. Christy and I laughed heartily at "pushin' rope"

Season 2 has at least 3 or 4 different absinthe appearances. I haven't seen season 3 yet.

Yep, wondered who else caught the Green Russian thing. Now I love a Black Russian every now and then, but once I get started it's hard to stop. But the Green Russian doesn't sound too appealing, nor does the whiskey and milk I recall a friend of my fathers drinking way back when. Seems he had stomach problems and that was the only way he could drink.
