You've got Space Fleas!!!

Uh oh dude! You've got the Space Fleaz!!! Space fleas can give someone the space crazies, and you my friend are space crazy. I mean dude, slow the fuck down! First you're announcing your actors, the the fact that you got a personal hero of mine, SYD 'effing MEAD to work on your shit; and now...a new fucking movie? Are you crazy?

Here dude, let me tell you a story. So way back when, before kids, I owned a Sega Saturn. I had been a Sega fanboy since my Master System (During those early years I also ended up getting the SNES and NES and, of course, a Genesis (Megadrive). But back then, I had very limited funds, so games were few and far between.). So here I am with my Saturn, when my Parents surprise me witha graduation present (Art School); an N64! Now, I was just about to start a new job, but had a week between school and my new job to do nothing. I filled with with conquering Golden Eye. Wait, this story is going to take way to long to tell.

Basically I ended up with shit tons of systems and games and could never give my full attention to any of them. Except Ocarina of Time. Oh, and the original Half Life. Good god that was a great game. Anyway, pull it together and focus. Focus on one thing. Try to block out Copley's insane tallness and the special riggings you'll need to make him look the same size as your other actors (especially the 4 foot 3 Matt Damon) and focus. Relax, focus on one thing. One thing. That thing, your current project, and it is...working with me.

That's right dude! I was going to post a tombstone with the words 'Doug Hopes and Dreams" carved on it when I heard you'd secured Syd Mead, but really what is so great about Syd Mead? Blade Runner? Please, I've seen tons of movies that look like Blade Runner, they just came out afterwards. Tron? Dude, that shit just came out, old Flynn/Young Flynn? Whatevahz.

Man...I can't do it. I can't pretend to not like Syd. I mean, I spent hundreds of dollars for a book of his. I stood in line at an E3 for nearly two hours hoping to shake his hand; only to end up getting out of line to catch a flight home. It's one of my few regrets. I briefly worked with a guy who knew him and said he is the nicest guy around. He's one of the few people I still hope to one day meet. I hear Syd Mead glows a slight golden color, and rooms feel warm when he's around. Syd Mead. Good fucking work dude, I mean that.

So Chappie, huh? I'm guessing it's a retelling of the Charlie Chaplin story, but....IN SPACE!

I could be wrong.

Have a good one dude, you're on fire lately.

I be da' published!

Dude, how goes it man? I got to be honest, this is a self plug post. The above image is a work image, there's more art here, but it ties into what I'm going to talk about. What could this be? Zombies. I know, I know; a stretch.

So I was recently publish in a comic anthology called Zombie Terrors. I have a bunch of pics and a three page story I wrote called "Hate". It was a few nights, and really fun to do. Is it good? Can I write at all? Well, let's see what the fucking reviewers say:

“Hate” is drawn or painted in a way that I really love. It looks like it was done with oil paints and the story is a romanticized version of how much humans and zombies hate each other. By the end of the story you almost find yourself admiring how honest a zombie really is.

Zombie One News
“Hate” is a clever little 11-panel inner monologue written and beautifully painted by Doug Williams, whose quick twist ending will put a smirk on any reader’s face.

Zombie Bunghole
Wow! Finally a new Hemingway. Doug Williams is a genius. A complex shockingly abrasive look at our inner souls all wrapped up in three simple pages! This guy should be in films! If I had my way, he'd work with Neill Blomkamp (The best filmamker ever) on everything Neill makes. The two combined would make Tango and Cash look like Poop and Shit. Neill should fire that super tall circus freak Shartlo Copley (He has gigantism we hear) and punch Matt Damon in his pretty blue eyed face. Doug and Neill forever! Together they'd rule all entertainment, and sasquachop the shit out of Hollywood! 'Hate' gets 10 out of 5 stars!

So you see dude, people are diggin' what I made. Special thanks to Frank Forte for giving me the opportunity (and haveing a kickass name).

So Neill, pick up a copy and I'll sign it for you.

Have a good one dude,

Well had to happen. I know I did the right thing, even though I hated doing it. I mean...there was just no choice. After Christmas, the wife's birthday, and everything else, there was just no way to afford it. Some choices are tough, and take hours to decide. Some choices remind you how old you are, and how you're just getting older. Some choices suck in the end.

I canceled my D-9 Exosuit order.

Neill, it's so fucking cool! So cool! Look at it here! I mean, that shit is tight! Oh well, such is life. I guess I'll just have to make my own out of yogurt cups and cardboard. Maybe a fork too.

So in other, more upbeat, news; this site is really cool! Art Blocks for Ghana. Lots of great artists on here, all for the benefit of mankind. That's cool and happy, right? Very grown up of people; taking time to do art for the sake of helping others. Oh and what's this?

Why, I did that. It looks a little better in person, because the paint is iridescent. OooOOooooh...shiny. Go to the site; other people took it more seriously, and turned out some amazing work. Fun to be included in this, it will help in the trial at the end of my life....a little. Thanks Danny!

Huh, I guess growing up isn't so bad. Although...I did mine in an evening, and really should have spent more time on I guess I'm not that grown up.

Fuck I wanted that Exosuit.

This has nothing to do with this post. I just needed art.
Matt Dam-on. No.

Neill dog, how goes the wheelin' and dealin'? You secure Damon yet? Is it going to happen? Let me just say this; I hope not.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Don't get angry. I love Matt Damon, great actor. There's just one problem, he's too good looking. I mean seriously. Who would ever buy that the guy would ever have any problems.

You know who would be good in his roles? ME! I mean I'm fugly, spies would actually be surprised if I was a secret agent. How about them apples.

Don't believe me?


Matt Damon as Jason Bourne. Here comes the awesome pen fight. We all love it, but it's totally not realistic.

Matt Damon: "I'm going to fight you with this pen."
Bad Guy: "Oh....ok. I was just going to ask for your autograph....but I guess we could fight."
Matt Damon: "Oh...well, I'm not really a fighter....I'm just trying to figure out who I am..."
Bad Guy: "Dude, you're Jason Bourne! I've had my eyes on you for a long time."
Matt Damon; "Oh, It's all coming back to me. Dude let's just hold hands and talk about theoretical physics."

See, totally not real. Another example? No problem! How about True Grit?

MattDamon: "I'm a Texas Ranger."
Jeff Bridges: "Hold my hand, I want to talk theoretical physics."

See, he would have ruined that movie in real life! Why are you not getting this? Ugh...another scene? Ponyo.

Matt Damon: (Flickering light in Morse Code) "Tell your Mom I love her."
Kid: (Flickering light in Morse Code) "She's swimming out to you."
Matt Damon: (Flickering light in Morse Code) "WHAT? SHE COULD DIE!"
Kid: (Flickering light in Morse Code) "She can tell how beautiful you are from your voice, even though your 2d form doesn't represent what you really look like. She wants to discuss theoretical physics with you....between her legs."

SHIT! He evens ruins cartoons. No seriously, did you see Titan A.E.? I know, I know; not his fault.

Man...picking on Matt Damon isn't as fun as Sharlto Copley. I guess I was excited to have this back and forth thing with Copley...but he disappeared. Now I'm sad. I miss him.

Sad Doug

Messing around...

Sup' G-Neill? Hopefully shit is going well for you man. Fucking around with some new brushes. Still like this one though, even though it's a quick sketch. Love me some Moebius, and all his pointy hats. The idea behind this fella' is he has all this social media projectors and relays. So he can express communication even faster than our old school way of talking. All symbols and abbreviatios compiled with actual old school chatty mouth moving.

Well...I'm at work, so I'll write more later.

Hope the movie is coming along and you secured Damon. He said some super nice shit about you on MTV's film blog thingy.

Under the gun...

Neill, dude, sorry for the lack of updates. I promise more soon. Sort of under the gun at the moment. Biting off more than I can chew seems to be a common theme with me lately.

Hope you had a great holiday and happy new year!

Be back soon.


PS Matt Damon was great in True Grit. It's too bad he and Copley have a blood feud.
