The Silence of the Lambs has creeped audiences out and put people off of fava beans for years. Al Pacino was considered for the part of Hannibal Lecter, but director Jonathan Demme wanted his Lecter to be a Shakespearean monster. He felt that a non-American actor would be the best at playing a character who uses language to manipulate people. [x]

Giant African Land Snail on wet tarmac road (South Africa) by Steve Lamb Via Flickr: The Giant African Land Snail (Achatina fulica) - this is a young one as it wasn’t nearly as big as they can be (up to eight inches long). We found this one crossing the road, in a rain storm, and he was probably three or four inches long. Interesting colors and markings. Even when you are looking for elephants and other big mammals you have to be aware of what’s about. Addo Elephant National Park (Eastern Cape Province) South Africa.
Time for another Atomic Puppet post. These designs are from an episode where we get a sneak peek at Joey’s possible future. Does he take justice into his own hands and go full on vigilante, or does he seperate from Atomic Puppet and become his own superhero. Coming soon!
comics I arranged for titlecard backgrounds, using posing from the show. Poses used are a mashup of everyone’s designs (myself, Alan Stewart, Devin Taylor, and Steve Lambe) Steve set the standard for these, and I followed suit.
The first concept I ever did for Atomic Puppet way back in 2011. Joey and AP changed and morphed a lot during the development process. Over the next few weeks, maybe I’ll share some concept art. #atomicpuppet #characterdesign #superhero #cartoon
