Think about the future (03-13-2019)

“Think about the future!” Some of you may remember this line that was uttered by Jack Nicholson in 1989’s Batman. I remember 1989, it was the year of the Batman. Unlike today when superhero movies are everywhere, back then they appeared once a decade…if you were lucky. But Batman was huge and it took the world by storm, and Jack Nicholson’s Joker was the highlight of that movie. One thing I will always love about this movie is the amazing score by Danny Elfman. Next to John William’s wonderful and unforgettable Superman theme, Danny Elfman’s Batman theme is one of the most memorable superhero themes of all time. With so many superhero movies today, it’s sad to me that none of them have memorable themes as these two.

Well anyway, let’s get back on track. Think about the future is going to be the title of a series of posts that will give you an idea of what I have planned for the future of IKONiMATION. My plans will include projects such as web comics, animations, and anything else that may come to mind.

As of now, I am working on a short animation. I’ve been working on this animation for the past month now and is almost done. Not to give away too much, it’s a two minute animation on the Jesus Prayer. I will post this on the website soon so stay tuned.

As soon as the Jesus Prayer animation is complete, I will continue working on my Father Gabriel childrens book, Father Gabriel Loves to Pray. Last month I completed the script, now I need to start working on sketching out the cover and the interior pages. I will be posting some of my sketches soon.

And lastly, I have a couple of ideas for future Father Gabriel webcomics. One I will reveal later, but this one I am pretty excited about. The tentative title is Father Gabriel and the Prisoner. The story is focused on a person who is sentenced to life in prison. As the years go by, his experience in prison makes him more angry and dangerous, until he is put in solitary confinement. Eventually, he is abandoned by all, even by his close relatives. But one day, he starts getting visits by a mysterious priest and his life begins to change.

I’m really excited about this story, but this will come after my childrens book is published.

Oh and one more thing. For those wondering if I will ever do another Father Gabriel animated episode, the answer is definitely yes. Right now I am just focused on the book and webcomics. The animated episode will come eventually. Thank you for your patience 🙂
