…………..goodbye Jack………




OW!!!!! My frickin goddam heart!!!!!! I was so scared the minute Ashi opened her mouth and made that portal. Dammit!! What a beautiful show and I loved every second of it. I can understand  this ending of Jack changing the past. This was his goal and there is that satisfaction of  finally saving his famiy. However, I was just hoping the Gods could help Ashi! There had to be a cost and it makes the ending so poetic but come on! The Gods should reward Jack at least….I knew that ladybug would be back. -.- When the ladybug first showed up with the white wolf. I was like….huh cute bug. Then Ashi had her flashback with it….I was oh frick no….This bug is symbolizing her. This bug is coming back… BACK TO THE PAST SAMURAI JACK!!! 

….now I have to mourn.The future of what could have been…..


I feel that Jack would have a son with Ashi. Just because there was so many daughters haha. 

Ok i’m probably not the first to do this

Well, yesterday was the final episode of Samurai Jack. And I gotta say, although it was rushed. The important thing was closure. I’m glad this show happened. I will always remember it as a cartoon show that had a good comeback. …unlike others.

Great send off for Samurai Jack from a great fan and YouTuber MightyGazelle!!! Great video for any Samurai Jack fans :)

So friend of mine and I were Skypin’ it up the other night and I went on some tangent about Aku going through a midlife crisis post-season 4, leading up to the events in Season 5. This struck friend-Mason as particularly funny so he decided to turn my inane rant into art.

Samurai Jack Post Part 1:

In February of 2016, I had the honor of helping out on season 5 of Genndy Tartakovsky’s “Samurai Jack”. My assignment was to use Genndy’s awesome thumbnail sketches and translate them into production boards which included adding more animation keys and breakdowns. His drawings were super fun to work from since they already conveyed a lot of energy and perfect compositions.  I unfortunately only had enough time and energy to freelance for one episode in my off hours, but I’m just grateful I was even able to do just a little bit work on this incredible project. Genndy is amazing to work under and I learned a lot from my short time on “Jack”. I can’t wait to see the rest of the series. It has already been simply ground breaking in all the ways.
