#476: Astrid…

May 31, 2010

Notes from the Manager

Astrid is the name of the girl character from How to Train Your Dragon, which they are, of course, watching. This scene is very early in the movie, and it happened to be the exact moment that I realized, "Yeah, I'm gonna like this. A lot."

If you're not a close follower of what's out at the movie theater, the reason they're not wearing 3-D glasses in this comic (as opposed to all the earlier times Jason has watched it) is that due to the relatively limited number of 3-D capable screens in the country, most — if not all — of the last 3-D screens Dragon was playing on are now showing Dreamworks' other 2010 release, Shrek 4.

Dragon is only in about 800 theaters across the country now, so if you haven't seen it yet, do yourself the favor of seeing it in theaters (and especially in 3-D if you still can).

And just in case you're curious, the movie doesn't have a home video release date yet (although it'll undoubtedly be out by Christmas).

UPDATE: A couple of movie theater workin' readers have pointed out the unlikelihood of How to Train Your Dragon being in a 10-plex at all anymore, and they're right. (How to Train Your Dragon is only in one second-run theater in the Chicago area this week, for example.)

If you're anal and you really want to have the timeline straight, the three-parter at the Hideaway took place two weeks ago, and this strip would have taken place last week. Thursday's strip will get me caught back up to the present day.

The Sessions: Voice Acting in Anime and Video Games

Thursday, February 11, 2016

This flyer design (including the illustrations, obviously) was a quick freelance project created for Chris Rager, the (English dub) voice of Hercule in Dragon Ball Z and Torgue in Borderlands 2 — a.k.a. the two characters shown here, if you’re unfamiliar with them. He’s starting up a class on voice acting next month and wanted something eye-catching to help promote it.

I met Chris at a convention a year or two ago (that’s why he called me to do this!), and he’s a blast, so if you’re in the Plano, Texas, area and interested, definitely look into this course. The first class runs from March 15th–April 5th, Tuesday evenings from 7–10 pm. (Four classes for three hours each class.)

I don’t know any more details, so just read the flyer!

If nothing else, I thought you guys might like the illustration.
