From the Facebook page:

Never is the story of Denim (Zachary Booth), a twenty-something who moves to Seattle and falls in love with a struggling, gay singer-songwriter named Nikki (Zelda Williams). And as their resulting friendship blossoms and complicates, it will challenge and redefine their understanding of love and modern relationships. 

 

Second things second: Wednesday, Oct. 15th is opening night for my new show, Stargazing, at Solo Bar, 200 Roy St., Suite 104, Seattle. Yay! If you’re in the area, do drop on by!

Third in news: for the first time, I’m participating in the Inktober challenge! This involves simply (hah!) creating one ink drawing each day for the month of October. I’ve been using a brush and ink in my new toned-paper sketchbook (I love it so!), and mostly doing the drawings around 10 – 11pm, before crawling into bed, but for 12 days now I’ve pretty much kept to it, and I’m pretty proud of them.

Okay, that’s all for now, but I’ll be back soon! Thanks for sticking with me!!

Another One About Love

You may remember this drawing from when I created the original design back in October for the independent film, “Never.”

I’ve gone back and added some color and texture, to turn it into a print! You can find it in the etsy shop here.ImageImage

NEVER – just a little movie about love

A couple of months ago at an art walk down in Pioneer Square I met Brett, a boy from California who was up in Seattle doing some filming for his independent movie. Cool, people make movies all the time, I thought. We talked about the possibility of me designing their official t-shirt. Fast-forward a few weeks and, after reading the script, seeing some stills and the pre-edited trailer, I fell in love. I can’t wait to see the final cut, and there is a kickstarter project up now in order to do color and sound design, as well as get it into the independent-film-festival circut. You can help make this happen!

HERE IT IS! CLICK IT! CLICK IT!

And here is their official t-shirt design, with Nikki and Denim.

From their kickstarter page:

What is NEVER?

Never is an independent feature film about Denim (Zachary Booth, of Ira Sachs’ Keep the Lights On and TV’s Damages), a twenty-something new to Seattle who falls in love with a struggling, gay singer-songwriter named Nikki (Zelda Williams, who starred alongside her father, Robin Williams, in House of D). But more importantly it’s about the way their resulting friendship blossoms, complicates, and ultimately redefines their understanding of sexuality and modern relationships.

The film co-stars Nicole Gale Anderson (from TV’s Jonas and Make It or Break It) and Angela Sarafyan (Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part II), featuring original music by Nora Kirkpatrick (of Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros).

Here are the rough brainstorming sketches:
