Illustration Friday: Geek

The geek in me jumped for joy at the prospect of realizing a classic moment from that 80's classic, The NeverEnding Story. Here, the Child-like Empress is telling Bastian that, "This grain of sand is all that remains of Fantasia."

I know there was an animated NeverEnding television show at one point, but I think it's a cool enough story to make into an animated feature. Anyone got eighty million dollars to invest?

You do excellent work! I loved looking at your other stuff and the Toon Club site.

Lovely illustration! Too bad, I just used my 80 million on a DIFFERENT animated feature!

I like this one a lot... which I already mentioned at Toon Club, but since it's here too, I decided to say it again. I know you're drawing a lot more stuff that doesn't make it to your blog. Where's that stuff?

Gorgeous work Adrian! Your work always has a magical quality... even when your not drawing magical stuff.

Did Toon Club ever do the "get together" BBQ at your place? My gold leaf invitation must have gotten lost in the mail. Or got blown up when Fantasia was destroyed. Just curious.

That was my favorite movie growing up. Your illustration is very beautiful and I like how the grain of sand and its trail leads the eye back to the characters.

Wow!so NICE!Your stuff ROCKS!
The animated series from the 80's looked like CRAP-just like the director wanted it to(I know,I was there!)
-If only YOU had been there,drawing AND directing it!
