Interview with Artist Dirk Richter!

Hello El Moochadores! We’re back with the Atomic Moocast episode #84! On this fine and quality edition (of podcasting gold) we’re talking with German pin-up artist, Dirk Richter! I think someone once told me, or maybe I heard it on tv… maybe it was Rush Limbaugh… 252889_1706192062470_1468104328_31356506_416893_n “If you can draw a good looking naked woman, you’ll never go hungry.” But I never really understood why someone would want to eat a bunch of their own sketches. Paper taste gross and why would you buy a bunch of paper, draw on it and then eat, when you could just as easy buy food? People are weird. Anyways, Dirk was a really cool to talk with and his work is amazing! Check out a few small samples below in the show notes along with links to his website and Facebook page.

So, it’s that time again folks! Time for easy, educational, free internet listening. All you have left to do now is secure a comfy corner of your habitat, claim a cool fizzy soda, and hit play on the best damn podcast your friends don’t know about!

Enjoy!

Ecko Burning

An Atomic Moo Book Review of Danie Ware’s New Sequel

Hello El Moochadores! This week’s Moo review is Ecko Burning, published by Titan Books. A sequel story to Danie Ware’s exciting sci-fi/ fantasy novel, Ecko Rising. The continuing saga of a cyber-enhanced assassin (Ecko) tossed into a fantasy realm full monsters, warriors, and magic!EckoRising_cvr It’s kind of like the Wizard of Oz, but instead of Dorothy there’s a skinny – foul mouthed – tech junkie, and instead of a tornado swirled house, there’s a flying bar (taverns are bars, right?). I’m not sure who Toto would be. Maybe one of the centaurs? Anyways, Ecko is pulled out of a dystopian London and wakes up in The Wanderer (the bar/tavern) and is soon on an adventure that Ecko hopes will get him home. Ecko Burning picks up right after this first adventure (sorry, but I’m trying really hard not to spoil anything), but this time around Ecko, and his new “friends”, must find a weapon powerful enough to defeat the evil force, Vahl, who is trying to destroy… well, everything. Here’s the synopsis:

Ruthless and ambitious, Lord Phylos has control of Fhaveon city, and is using its forces to bring the grasslands under his command. His last opponent is an elderly scribe who’s lost his best friend and wants only to do the right thing.
Seeking weapons, Ecko and his companions follow a trail of myth and rumour to a ruined city where both nightmare and shocking truth lie in wait. Back in London, the Bard is offered the opportunity to realise everything he has ever wanted – if he will give up his soul. When all of these things come together, the world will change beyond recognition.

Danie Ware’s knack for fantasy and science fiction is incredible. In Ecko Burning she blends the two genres beautifully allowing for a dark (paranoid) future and another, magical, world where metal barely exists at all. However; there’s also a lot going on here. Both Ecko Burning and Ecko Rising are chuck full of characters, new places, and because the books bring in a new mythology, it can be easy to get a little lost in all details. Ware’s writing style can also add to the confusion. It’s not that she isn’t a good writer, because she is, but her descriptions, analogies, and metaphors are almost poetry. Sometimes it was a little hard to see past her descriptive power to what was actually happening on the page. But on the flip side of that criticism there’s Ecko. A contentious, ornery, and foul mouth little bastard incapable of not saying “fuck” when ever he opens his mouth. I liked him. He a great lens to see through that brought the weirdness into focus. In Ecko Rising I enjoyed his growing friendship with The Bard, and Burning added some interesting twists to their tale. I was a little disappointed that Ecko and the Bard didn’t have more time in the book, but I am eager to see where they end up in the next novel.

Overall, I highly recommend Ecko Burning. It was a great 2nd act and set up for what’s to come, but if you haven’t read Ecko Rising, do that first! Other wise you’ll be muttering, “I don’t get it” many, many times.

Ecko Burning is available in book stores now or you can get your copy throughTitan Books!

SDCC 2014 Photos!

DSC_0043

Hey El Moochadores! Though we’re currently working on a full gallery of images from SDCC 2014, I thought I would share a few samples to show off/brag about all the cool stuff we saw and all the fun we had. Sure there were massive crowds, we had no money,DSC_0034 and the security was way beyond rude (minimum wage agro… grrr), but despite it all, Chudd and I, had a great time as we floated between panels on creativity, the exhibit hall, and the downtown Gaslamp area now engulfed by four days of pop-culture heaven. We’ll also be doing a more in depth review of the con on the next Moocast (coming very soon) we’re we’ll post links to some of our favorite panels, events, and celebrity run ins, but for now enjoy a few sample images of two aging nerds love’n the pure con fun!

Enjoy!

Atomic Moo Book Review of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Rise of the Planet of the Ape: The Art of the Films

dawnrise

By all accounts the films Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, have both been huge successes at the box office, and a step forward in science fiction and film making. Now publisher Titan Books, and Twentieth Century Fox, are giving ape fans a unique, behind the scenes, look at the making of this wonderful franchise in one comprehensive hardback book.SONY DSC The Art of the Films combines the production process of both films including: character and set designs; insights into the revolutionary motion capture technology used during onsite production; and production art, models and props made for the films. The Art of the Films also includes exclusive interviews with the cast and crew of both films, as well as a foreword from director Matt Reeves. Here’s the basic synopsis:

The stunning new art book on Planet of the Apes! A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.

I’ve said in prior reviews that I love film art books. For the most part they are insightful glances at film making, but as a wannabe artist, they’re also great for reference material. So, I like almost all film art books, but I think this is probably the best one I’ve encountered to date.3NgVuxb Actually, it’s more like two books under one cover. The first half goes back to Rise of the Planet of the Apes and does a wonderful job of explaining the artistic and technical creation of Ceasar and the other apes. Crew members and cast, like Andy Serkis provide a vast amount of information about character development and the design of the film.image_3 Which is then combined with stunning behind the scenes images and artwork. The second half of the book, Dawn of the planet of the Apes was probably my favorite. Here the producers show how they made the beginnings of ape culture and how they explored tribalism and family. I love the images of the ape village combined with the symbols they developed to show rudimentary written language skills and social order. Overall, this isn’t just another coffee table book. The Art of the Films is an all inclusive insight into modern film making and a flat out fun read.

The Art of the Films: Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is available now in all major bookstores or you can get your copy online at Titanbooks.com! Below I’ve included a few sample images from the book I found on the web. Unfortunately the book is way too big for my scanner.
