Redoing the back page of the big 'TOON KILLS' paper, which is the back of a real paper. Ads include: Tiajuna Hotels, 'new housing' in Joshua Tree, and Male/female hormone supplements. Fun stuff for future readers.
Finished the prototype for the glue can! Sooooo happy with it!!! It’s 10”x 11” and made from a similar van as the props. Eventually, I’ll do a big one when the company that makes them has them back in stock!
Absolutely fantastic work! I love the photos of Eddie and Teddy in better times, that's one of my favourite parts of the movie. Seeing Eddie's initial elation at the sight of the photos of him and Dolores, only for reality to come crashing back as he flips to the first shot of him and Teddy... the older I get the harder that scene hits.
A truckload of more work has been completed, as I wrap up the Catilina photos and desk photos. Several of these needed built from scraps of other photos, as well as touch ups, restorations, and full on painting.
When trying to rebuild the 'On the Road with Dad' photo, I realized I would have to paint most of the picture, until I tripped over a perfect photo of the wagon behind them, which sits restored in a museum in Wisconsin. The real hum dinger is that the restoration is markedly different from the wagon in the phot, as they have different tops. The pic I found was from the 60's, so I plugged it in and it filled most of the photo. now all I have to do is paint the kids and dad
I'm also continuing work on the news papers and the scrapbook seen in Eddie's Office. Stay toned for more!
I've been working on trying to decipher the actual text of Marvin Acme's Will.
I've completed about 95% of the Will. Have you had any luck with that?
Maybe you can help fill in the blanks.
