Waiting, waiting, waiting for our lunch at Hooters. The time on Roxxy's camera is off, but it felt like we'd been waiting for a couple of years!

Holy cow - this awesome guy was standing there right as I walked into the vendor room. I have always wanted to make some sort of monster fishman movie. As I was later told, I walked over to this and stared at it every time I went into the vendor room throughout the weekend.

We were thrilled that our movie, BLOOD CREEK WOODSMAN was having it's WORLD PREMIERE at this year's Crypticon. It was only fitting since it was Crypticon 2009 that inspired it - read all about it here! Look - there's our poster!


Here is the World Premiere promo!

We screened a trailer of my next movie DRIFTER before the movie.

We also screened a trailer of a movie I made with my buddy John Bowker just before we made Blood Creek Woodsman - it was called EVIL RISING.

This was the best ever. There were about 15 of us in the room for "MONSTERMAN" Cleve Hall's panel. He walked in with his Crypticon handler and flopped down in the second row of chairs from the back - right across from us - and told the helper that he needed coffee. Instead of going up to the table and microphones, Cleve just launched into an informal conversation with us, spinning stories and his adventures in the monster-making biz. Soon, the helper returned with coffee and a donut and Cleve continued just chatting about his life and work and had us all fascinated. It was wonderful. He was fun, humble and thankful.

You know, this picture turned out pretty weird, but I kind of dig it.


blood creek woodsman crypticon seattle 2013 dr. squid joe sherlock

Rob and Cleve. Hmmm....they look kind of similar. I wonder what it would look like if they switched noses and mouths?


blood creek woodsman crypticon seattle 2013 dr. squid joe sherlock

Well, I guess they would look like that!
