Hey everyone! I can finally post these. I had to opportunity to do the illustrations featured in the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie trailer. It had a very very quick turnaround and I had less than a day to do a lot of them but it was a wonderful experience. You can see the trailer itself here (though the art itself gets pretty shrouded in it).
I think I cracked it:
- 3.01 Mozzarella
- 3.02 Fettuccine Alfredo
- 3.03 Pizza
- 3.04 Spaghetti Bolognese
- 3.05 Lasagne
- 3.06 Ravioli
- 3.07 Calzone (cross-over ep with Parks and Rec obvs. Bert Macklin has a lead)
- 3.08 Minestrone Soup
- 3.09 Pesto
- 3.10 Spaghetti Carbonara
- 3.11 Risotto
- 3.12 Amarone (Hannibal eats another census taker)
- 3.13 Gelato

I’M FUCKING CRYING THIS IS NOT OKAY
You know what the Green Heron is basically the best heron because it is like 90% neck so when it is all folded down it looks like a giant head with wings and legs
but then suddenly ZOOP
fucking green herrons
What the fuck
“True character is revealed in the choices a human being makes under pressure - the greater the pressure, the deeper the revelation, the truer the choice to the character’s essential nature. But this? Using scissors to cut off the tip of a slice of pizza? I don’t know what this is. ”
The reason why the room was pink was because on black and white film, hues of red become dark shades of black. Pink is the perfect balance to give it that dark creepy grey.
A related fun fact: while old black and white film was under-sensitive to reds, it was correspondingly over-sensitive to greens. Actors whose characters were meant to have unnaturally pale complexions - like Morticia Addams - would often take advantage of this by wearing makeup with a green base tint in order to make their faces “pop”. This is where the modern trope of cartoon vampires having green skin comes from.
These are some fun fucking facts
