Sony Pictures Animation - 1 Million Facebook Fans!

Just thought I'd toss this up. Home again to smoggy, crowded, hot, soul sucking LA.  Time to put on my tie and get back in the rat race.  Think I'll eat some nuclear sushi and get drunk this afternoon.  Chow!

Oh... here's the final image. Love you all. KP.

New Cover

This week I'm working and it makes me happy. Time zones and fuzzy tongues swallow my fear and plant a seed of ambition in my garden of worry. Why do I keep hitting myself with this fish? Why not, I say... why the hell not!

New book I'm working on.

Here's a rough cover mock up for a new book I'm working on with my friend Paul Zehr. Thought I'd toss it up to share. Cool beans. KP.

Road sketches

Texas. From the outside looking in... seems like a land of crazy where hunters kill endangered black rhinos for sport and rich white kids can literally get away with murder. But let me tell you... after a week getting mugged at Disney world in the commercially aggressive swamps of Florida with every other human being on the planet (or so the line up for Space Mountain would have me believe), I kinda enjoyed the 80 mile an hour speed limit through a land of space and sky. Felt like true American freedom, I tells ya! Don't get me wrong... I couldn't buy a 20 dollar turkey leg the size of a human baby, and there wasn't the adrenaline hit of opening mystery vinyl toys that I'll never EVER find any use for... but the idea of space and calm rolling hills whizzing under the tires of our laden Honda Odyssey wasn't just peaceful... it was almost downright poetic. Me and the little kid in the backseat (the big kid now sits up front when Mom drives because apparently I make her batshit crazy with my opinions and such) decided to pass the time drawing what we saw out the window. And what did we see? Texas. Say what you will about the Lonestar state... I've never met a person from Texas that I didn't like. Yee Haw!

Xmas stuff for the holidays

Been sifting through some old work to do a talk in my ol’ stomping ground of Toronto. Found these beatboards from Arthur Christmas. They never really got used for any reason. My good friend Adam Cootes came through and made amazing, beautiful drawings that hit the film out of the park on the sales pitch side. If you ever want to see those drawings.… check out the “Art of Arthur” book. Like the movie… I don’t think anybody ever saw this. I don’t blame you though… not a great book in the grand scheme of “art of books”. Not enough art. But worth it to see who Adam is. He’s amazing. Anyhow… I’m in Canada. Been here for two weeks. I f@#king love being home in Canada. I dunno why I ever left. Drove from Ottawa to Toronto today. 401 was a mess. Felt like home. Can you trust nostalgia? What a emotional mess. Looking forward to seeing some old friends tomorrow. Cheers, KP
