Do you know if the Darkwing Duck comic series will be renewed by BOOM or Marvel? Would you work on it again if it did? Loved that series!
Thank you, I’m glad you liked the book. I had a blast doing it.
BOOM doesn’t have a Disney license anymore and Marvel hasn’t shown any interest in Disney books. I think the best bet for new DW or any new Disney Afternoon books is with licensing through a new or existing comic book company.
And yes, I would be more than happy to return to St. Canard (or Duckburg).
If you have emailed me about an ECCC Commission...
…And haven’t received a reply, please send me a note through the “ask” on tumblr or a twitter reply. Apparently both Amy Mebberson and I are having email issues regarding requests for the upcoming con.
So I am in LOVE with your Alice/She-ra mash-up and I am wondering if that will be a print sold at ECCC? Thank you!
Thank you, I’m so glad you like that piece. Unfortunately that piece, like all the other marker pieces and mash-ups on my tumblr are one of a kind originals. The only prints I have are the ones I do through license with Disney and sold by Acme Archives. If you would like something similar to the Alice piece you could always order an original for pick up at the con. Email me at email@example.com for details
So, what's your reaction to the recent news, that there's gonna be a Rescue Rangers movie?
I am actually optimistic. What I think is funny is that for years I’ve heard from countless Disney Afternoon fans “When are we gonna get new stuff?” Now that they’ve announced something new everyone was quick to call for the directors head on a platter. Face it people, we are never going to get a new Rescue Rangers, Darkwing or Ducktales series or traditionally animated movie. The model has changed. Those kind of shows do not exist anymore. Outside of continuing the stories through the comics like we did and plan on continuing to do, the only way to see new stories is with a movie like this live action take. We can only hope that the director understands what made a show like RR special in the first place. And we can implore that someone has the good sense to bring the show’s creator Tad Stones on to consult.
And let us pray that no one involved has visions of Alvin & The Chipmunks dancing in their heads.
Are you going to be at the Amazing Arizona Comic Conn this weekend??
I’m afraid I will not be attending this year. My workload has gotten to the point where I had to make some decisions and reduce the number of cons I will be attending this year. Wondercon and C2E2 were the unfortunate casualties on that list. I love both of those cons and I’m truly sorry to be missing out on seeing you all there.
I've just discovered your blog and all I can keep thinking, is "Wow." I used to want to draw when I was younger but I stopped practising, and for years lost all my creative drive, but getting it back again as I am, coming across your work is the perfect inspiration. Thank you!
Thank you. I know the feeling of looking to another artist to inspire. That’s what I love about tumblr. Daily inspiration at my fingertips.
I love what you're doing with Darkwing Duck.... I'm crossing my fingers that there will be more comics to come. Keep doing what you're doing and I'm sure someone at Disney or Marvel (or where ever) will give you the thumbs up on a new series. Keep up the outstanding work Mr. Silvani!!
Keep the fingers crossed a little longer. Things are progressing.
Have you or would you plan to draw some mash ups or characters from some Disney Afternoon obscurities like The Wuzzles, Bonkers, The Mighty Ducks or The Adventures of the Gummi Bears
I did include Bonkers and the Gummis in my Disney Afternoon poster (available from Acme Archives and Dark Ink Art). I debated on including The Mighty Ducks in there as well but in the end I kept it to the core DA. And I think Wuzzles was saturday mornings and I never got up early enough to watch.
In the meantime here’s the line art to the DA piece.
I just wanted to stop in to tell you that I've been in the hospital the last few days and I keep coming back to your blog. Your mash ups and other drawings have helped put a smile on my face. So thank you.
Thank you, I’m always happy to hear that my stuff is what helps someone pass the time in a hospital rather than what puts them in there. This is for you…
Hi! Is your art still at FAO in NYC? I love both of those!
