It's been a while! I feel like I've been living under a rock but it just aint' so! To tell the truth, I'm crazy busy working on more DC animated movies that will hopefully charm, thrill, and entertain everyone and they mama, and they mama's mama, lol. Anyway, I wanted to take some time today to post an update regarding SDCC 2013 and the next movie in WBA's line of DC animated direct to DVD features, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox! We worked our fingers to the bone on this one and we will be screening it for the first time ever at this years Comic Con, Friday July 19th in beautiful San Diego California! 
Following the premiere there will be a panel featuring members of the production staff including myself, Jay Oliva, James Tucker and Andrea Romano, as well as a few of the outstanding voice talents from the film and the writer, Jim Krieg. Here's the official press release with the details video.comicbookresources.com/c…

Also, I'm gonna be doing a live drawing demonstration somewhere at the DC booth on Saturday, sometime between 3-4PM. I'll probably be sketching YJ characters, if I can remember how to draw them, ha ha, it's been a minute ;) So swing by if you're in the neighborhood!

Can't wait to see Flashpoint ^_^ I'm not very familiar with Flash's paradox storyline. I haven't really had a chance to read any of the comics. Hope you had a blast at comic con and I look forward to watching this Flash movie and the other DC animated works.

Fair enough.  Planet Hulk and Hulk vs. were some of the stronger projects but as a whole I find DC/Warner has been able to keep the bar high in both animation quality and storytelling.
Although I am looking forward to the Disney/Marvel feature of Big Hero 6!

Absolutely love your style Phil, and I think it's perfect for DC's animated features. I've seen every one made since they began doing the "straight to dvd" films and I have yet to be let down by any in terms of animation, character design, or story. Please keep making these, as the hard work definitely shows.

Hope to see you guys at the show!

very best,
~Chad C.

Soooooo, out of curiousity, am I reading too much into you saying it's been a minute for YJ characters being drawn? Are you talking about recreational drawings, or can we hope for more YJ somehow in the future? :D

Or are you just not legally allowed to reveal anything either way haha.

:iconphilbourassa:
philbourassa Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2013  Professional Filmographer
No, all I meant is that I have not drawn them since the show wrapped production in April of 2012. I've been working on other stuff since then.

I didn't read the arc where Flash went through the..Paradox? But I remember hearing about it a lot when people were reading it. I've got the movie saved on Netflix and I'm really curious to see how it'll go. I know the animation looks gorgeous as usual. :heart:

Man, this makes me regret SO much that I didn't try for tickets this year! If I were going, I'd jump STRAIGHT to the screening, and then to the DC booth.

I hope someone posts (is allowed to post) videos of your live demonstrations somewhere in their entirety, the closest thing I've seen one is a video of you drawing Robin (my favorite character of all time, and my favorite in terms of how you illustrate him) that was cut to be like 2 minutes in length. It'd be amazing to watch you draw in person.

You don't attend any other conventions, do you?

When you open up your page for commissions one day, I will try my hardest to be one of the first to inquire.

I may be selling sketches of Young Justice characters in the future with all proceeds going to children's charities, programs for the arts, etc. When I have an official announcement I will post a journal. There will probably be more than a couple drawings of Robin since he is so fun to draw. :)

Oh my G-d, you're as great a person as you are an artist! If and when that day comes, I'll be more than happy to contribute to the efforts. Awesome, I'll be on the lookout for the boy wonder!

The character who shows up most in my sketchbook is Robin, so I can definitely agree with your viewpoint!

I hope the screening isn't too nerve wracking (you're probably used to it by now, I'm sure) and that you have a blast!!!

Oops, that may have been a bit misleading, it's more of a drawing demonstration projected onto a screen than drawing sketches for individual attendees :) But I may open up my page for commissions one day...
