Ed McMahon passes at 86

A true Hollywood legend passed away today at the age of 86.  Ed will always be known as the original and #1 sidekick, working on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson from the 1960’s until 1992 when Johnny retired. Always a gentleman and quick with a comeback, Ed had the most contagious laugh that you couldn’t help but laugh with him once he got going.  He will be best known for his line: HEEEEERE’S Johnny!!!!   Copied by many announcers over the years but was so perfectly mimicked best by Jack Nicholson in “The Shining.”

We will miss you Ed.  Thanks for all the fun memories growing up in front of the tube!

A great shot of Mr. McMahon

starships of the day

From the Perpetual files come three more vessels from the long extinct ST Online game created by Perpetual Entertainment.  Sadly, this project disbanded over a year ago, and the creative forces have scattered across the USA in pursuits of other work and projects. Ryan Dening and Todd Ramen were the two guys I worked for, and their roles were as the production coordinator and production designer. I really miss working with these guys as well as the whole team. They were doing some amazing work and everything was looking pretty darned incredible, but $$$ to produce a game is high and funding issues left this one smashed against the rocks.  Fun times and fun crew.  Here are some renderings they had me working on, and they were a lot of fun to draw up.

Enjoy.
