Agent Crush - New Images

The Agent Crush website has been updated with TONS of new images. New behind-the-scenes galleries have been added, and the existing ones have been updated and expanded.

There are new photos of Mike Trim and the crew building models of all stripes, as well as many examples of pre-production artwork that haven't been seen before.

Mike even managed to find work for some "old friends", as evidenced in the image above! The movie is really shaping up and it looks to be "Puppet Soup for the Soul" for all Supermarionation fans.

No word yet on a release date, but I'll post something as soon as I hear. In the meantime, have fun exploring the website - and tell a friend about it!

Mike Trim Space Art - Vintage 1973

Another week, another piece of art that didn't make it into The Future was FAB: The Art of Mike Trim.
This is one of the sample pieces Mike did when he decided to go freelance in 1973. Given his earlier science fiction experience, he imagined he'd end up doing a lot of that sort of work. As it was, Mike did very little Sci-Fi work during his years as an illustrator. This led to an increasing sense of frustration and the eventual emergence of The Unknown project in the late '80's. This was an original stab at a sci-fi themed puppet production Mike developed with his friend and former student, Mark Munroe. The project remains unfinished.
