Over the last few months I have been getting a lot of questions here on DA about what my next project would be and when it might be announced and released. Also, I am thrilled to say, that a lot of you awesome friends and fans have expressed the idea that following Young Justice, you would like to see more DC animation work from me. Well I am happy to reveal that the next project featuring my design work is the recently announced Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, directed by the super talented Jay Oliva, and it will hit the streets on July 30th. I did the designs for this film last spring and summer (after production wrapped on YJ: Invasion) and we just finished post production on the project last month. I gotta say that thanks to all the tremendous talent involved in making this thing, it's looking pretty epic. I personally pushed my style into a slightly more exaggerated look for much of this film and I  hope those of you who dug the look of Young Justice will get a kick out of seeing the style evolve. I can't say much more than that right now, but I will have more stuff to share as we get closer to the release date.

For now here is a Link to the press release...

I saw Flashpoint Paradox today/yesterday! It is an amazing movie and I will be gettingit once it comes out on dvd! One thing that annoys me though is that I saw someone taking pictures or a video and they probably posted it online somewhere andd what I find annoying is that people would reveal spoilers like that! Even though the screen before the panels say not to. what are you're thoughts on the spoilers being posted? (I'm sorry for any misspelling I am on my tablet)

I noticed wonder woman's eyes looked more...anime than in YJ, is that on purpose? It's not a problem I'm just curious.

It is intentional. We decided ( Jay Oliva, James Tucker and myself) to try to achieve a look that had more apparent Anime influences than some of my past work. This movie was animated by studio 4c in Japan, so that might have something to do with it as well.

I adore your work, and I can't wait to see it in action! I was really bummed out at the loss of YJ. I'm hoping we'll get more of that kind of show versus what Teen Titans has become.

whom can we protest the cancellation of YJ? that show was magnificent , character growth , interesting takes on former 2nd string characters , not campy but had heart and humor at moments needed.
well done to all involved. i'll be waitin for the flashpoint paradox

I'm not sure there is any amount of protest that will bring Young Justice back I'm afraid. On behalf of myself and the rest of the crew we do appreciate your devotion to the show. One thing I CAN suggest is that if you are a gamer you might want to pick up Young Justice Legacy in the fall. The shows producers had a hand in writing the story for the game, which takes place in between seasons one and two, and the game features designs faithful to the look of the show.

When there's a Great show and such clean developed art , with well written stories that carry the weight of real lessons that's not aimed just for toys its always something that ends too soon such as YJ.
I will keep my fingers crossed for at the minimum a straight to DVD/blu-ray specials ! I'll have to keep my eyes for it, but definitely something to promote if it'll give the show/verse a shot.

I look forward to everyones new projects , can't say I'm impressed with the "Teen titans" anime bit that they're shovin at the kids.. its not terrible art but oi, the best reference would its so bad it almost reads as a super villain plot to brainwash the youth of earth ! lol

So psyched for this release! I never got a chance to pick up the Flashpoint arc (I rarely pick up in-continuity books anyway) so I'll finally get to see what all the hubub was about! Plus, this means brand new Philly B concept art!!

Thank you for being an inspiration to everyone here and to myself as well. You have rekindled my love for DC and have reminded me that true art comes from within.

Thanks so much for saying so, I am glad that my work is a source of inspiration for you. You know your comment resonates with me and perfectly captures how I feel about working on this stuff. There is such a built in fan base for these characters I feel like I have a responsibility to try to do my very best work when I am drawing them.

Sorry about the late response. First, Phil, you are a credit to the industry. You brought to the table a new fresh view on how DC character's should be drawn. This is a new forefront in the DCU evolution and you my friend, binging your incredible talents to the table have given birth to the next generation of DC artwork. Kudos to you Phil and the others involved in making this all happen. Your outstanding artwork will stand the test of time and set the bar even higher for true excellence. It is truly an honor to be able to be part of the DA family and a major supporter to the DCU. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication. In my view you are an outstanding artist and a wonderful person. You always treat the fans with respect and kindness. That speaks volumes in my book. You sir have my utmost respect and admiration. I look forward to seeing your future works and I wish you nothing but success, which you truly deserve and are entitled too. Thank you for taking the time to respond back to me. Your friend in art and a fellow Deviant. Terra Zin :iconthundercatsplz:

I can't wait for this movie to come out. I preordered on Amazon the day it became available. I am totally not surprised that these ate your designs. I fell in love with the look if this from the very first image released. With an animated Flashpoint, I'm really hoping it opens the door for some New 52 animated features. :)

But if i'm to be perfectly honest I preferred your YJ style over this one, the heads seem a bit too small??? ??
whatever, good job!!

Yeah, I understand a lot of folks might prefer my YJ stuff but every now and then you have to try something different as an artist, especially as a professional. The people who employ me don't always want to see the exact same thing from me over and over, I have to show them something different from project to project or they will get bored of me, and frankly, I would probably get bored too.

I'm happy that the FlashPoint saga is made into a movie.... I would also point that it could have been promoted as a Flash story and not the Justice League. Aside from the TV series made 2 decades ago, there hadn't been a Flash story and Flashpoint somehow is the best spot to showcase Flash as the protagonist he is for this story.

That's just me though,,,,
