paranorman is OUT

Tragically this is probably the closest to on-model I’ve ever drawn him.

Paranorman is out August 17th, which is TODAY!!! In North America as well as Iceland, Vietnam, Taiwan and the Netherlands. I saw it last week and am seeing it again tonight (and hopefully even more times after that). I am so so proud to have worked on this movie with the most talented and awesome crew I’ve ever encountered. Please go see it this weekend with as many of your friends as you can muster! Brave independent animation needs your support! I promise it’s way better than Expendables 2.

Reminder that I’ll be in LA on Sunday for the Nucleus Paranorman panel!

And another reminder that today is the last day to vote in the Harvey Awards, possibly for Anya’s Ghost. The ballot is online here, it’s super easy!

Okay, back to refreshing Rotten Tomatoes.

    Huge fan of your work Vera, and I’d love to support the artists who worked on this… is there some way to donate to the Laika Studios artists?
