I have always tried to be as transparent with you guys as possible, letting you in on the process of making (and not making) Community. So maybe my silence on the issue of a hypothetical sixth season seems frustrating. I was thinking I could stay quiet because there’s too much to say and anything…
Swedish automaker Koenigsegg just unveiled the One:1, which is likely to become the fastest production car on the planet. It’s also the first with a 1:1 power to curb weight ratio. That means 1,340 horsepower, 1,340 kilograms. Top speed should be over 273 mph. It’s just one of the cars we’re psyched to see at the #Geneva Motor Show; see the rest at businessinsider.com.

The good gang at Abrams Books sent us an advance copy, and it sure is terrific. You’ll want to buy two: one to keep in book form and one to yank apart to spruce up those drab walls of yours (it worked for us).
Last year, Rick Blanco from Cartoon Network asked me if I would be interested in contributing to an Adventure Time poster book that was in the works. He said that the only catch was that I would have to contribute something that wasn’t in “show style”…. Jeeeez. Show style is sort of what I do. And maybe I like to hide behind that kind of stuff when doing professional work. Secret feelingssssss.
I ended up doing it and CN/Abrams liked the final image enough to make it the cover!
The image was inspired by quite a few things.
- Tatsuro Kiuchi, thank you Colin Howard for showing me his work
- Jasmin Lai, who is crazy good
- WPA posters
So yeah, my image is a poor man’s version of the above inspiration. A very very poor man.
Also! I posted my initial comps that I presented as ideas that I wanted to explore. People like seeing that kind of stuff right? Sort of all over the place…. The one that’s just line I was gonna go bonkers with the color… but comping it in only black and white line was probably the worst way to sell it. haha.
Pre-order the book here!!! It’s big and came out awesome.
Score Two for Adventure Time!
Congratulations to Pen Ward and the cast and crew of Adventure Time. The show earlier this evening won its first-ever Annie Award, picking up the trophy for the Best Animated TV/Broadcast Production for Children’s Audience. And hugs and kisses to Mr Tom Kenny and his work as Ice King for earning the Annie for Voice Acting in an Animated TV/Broadcast Production.
Well-deserved, everyone. Now go win the Super Bowl tomorrow!
