Stuff I dig: the Amazing Screw-On Head

I've decided not to go back to the toolbox entries for a while because I don't really have the time and I'm trying to keep my thinking/style flexible for the next for now this blog will just be about stuff I dig.

I caught the half-hour pilot of the Amazing Screw-on Head on Sci-Fi this week; it's worth checking out. An adaptation of a Dark Horse comic by Mike Mignola, it has a Lovecraft/Gorey sensibility. The color palette for the cartoon is just right, and they animated the shadows on the characters, so it doesn't look like Mignola's inking style is static. The pilot is available for viewing online.
