a story of late nights, unorthodox household plants, and a trip to Vegas that changes everything

“Need me to drop you off anywhere specific?”

“The gardening section is fine,” Savannah mumbled. She’d traded Reyna’s phone in for her own and was currently scrolling through instagram.

“Just promise me one thing,” Reyna sighed, taking a sharp right turn which earned her a glare from Sav. “Sorry,” she said sheepishly.

“Promise what?” Savannah asked warily.

“Don’t buy another cactus, you’ve killed the last three you’ve owned.”

Just wanted to post some of the design work I did for one of my favorite episodes! Amazing work from @scrotumnose and @haewon-lee on boards and designs i feel like I’ve watched this episode 10 times by now and I’m still excited by it! Dave did some great takes on our characters in the Captain Planet style and I touched the drawings up with help from our art director John Pham who did a pass on them, he’s super knowledgeable about that era of cartoon realism!  The crew put a lot of effort and heart into this crossover and I hope you can enjoy it too!

Crazy Rich Asians’ Constance Wu and Henry Golding cover next week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly 

“Yet the craziest part of Warner Bros.’ Crazy Rich Asians, slated for an Aug. 17 release, isn’t the fact that its decadence makes Versailles look like a Red Roof Inn; it’s that it boasts an all-Asian cast, a rare commodity in an industry that’s still working on breaking its habit of “whitewashing” (i.e. casting white actors in ethnically Asian roles). Few Hollywood films have exclusively featured Asian principal casts since The Joy Luck Club more than two decades ago — a fact Michelle Yeoh, an Asian superstar with just a handful of lead roles in Hollywood productions, understands well. “It’s been too long since there’s been an all-Asian cast,” says the Malaysia-born actress, who stars as Nick’s intimidating mother, Eleanor. “I’ve been very lucky to have worked on one before [2005’s Memoirs of a Geisha], but they’re too few and far between.””

Work I did for Back in Red Action! @miraongchua designed the amazing hue troop and @parkersimmonsyall designed the vehicles. I did the model sheets for  Yellow Technique and Green Guts and @juliasrednicki did the rest.  It was an intense episode because the vehicles would be done in cg so we needed to change the way we did the model sheets to fit a cg pipeline. The lineup and colors were done by our colorist @kalidraws! Also the one Red Action selfie was done by Julia as well! This was a tricky but fun episode to work on so I hoped you all enjoyed it!

Warner Bros.' 'Crazy Rich Asians' Gets August 2018 Release Date

Constance Wu, Michelle Yeoh, Ken Jeong, Harry Shum Jr. and Awkwafina star in the Jon M. Chu comedy.

Crazy Rich Asians is hitting theaters in summer 2018.

Warner Bros. has announced that the comedy, directed by Jon M. Chu, will be released on Aug. 17, 2018. It will open opposite Focus’ sci-fi title Captive State with John Goodman and Vera Farmiga, STXfilms’ puppet comedy The Happytime Murders with Melissa McCarthy and Maya Rudolph, and Aviron’s crime thriller Three Seconds with Rosamund Pike, Joel Kinnaman and Clive Owen.

Constance Wu, Michelle Yeoh, Ken Jeong, Harry Shum Jr., Awkwafina, Jimmy O. Yang and Gemma Chan are part of the all-Asian ensemble cast of the movie. Adapted from Kevin Kwan’s hit novel, it centers on three wealthy Chinese families as they prepare for Singapore’s wedding of the year.

The story follows Rachel Chu (Wu), an American-born Chinese economics professor, who travels to her boyfriend Nick’s (Henry Golding) hometown of Singapore for his best friend’s wedding. Before long, his secret is out: Nick is from a family that is impossibly wealthy, he’s perhaps the most eligible bachelor in Asia, and every single woman in his ultra-rarefied social class is incredibly jealous of Rachel and wants to bring her down.

A bit late but I’m finally posting my stuff for Parents Day. It’s one of my favorite episodes and the work that @stevieborbolla and @dannyducker did was amazing. Credit goes to Stevie for doing the original concept/design for Bernard, Enid’s dad! I’m a big movie monster fan so this episode was a joy to work on I’m glad that it’s finally out in the world!!
