DVD painting w/Easter egg!

I stuck something in this DVD cover painting for detail-oriented conspiracy theorists. It includes two levels of obscurity. Any thoughts?

  1. Mmmmmh well, I see it's the Geek's lab...

    Unless I'm mistaken, there's the ray that "fries like a pork sausage" from Hit the Road there?

  3. The composition looks like skull's eyes, I don't want to look at the picture any longer, it's creeping me out :(

  5. At least you included an actual Easter basket for us to keep the egg in if we ever find it.

  6. Also there's the Geek's coffin in the background. It even says "Gugenheek" on it

  7. We have a winner. It's a Spock photon torpedo coffin with our favorite Geek's last name inscribed. But is she actually in it? That I will not say.

    The title of the article is just a remarkable coincidence:

  8. I can't believe I got that right o.O

    Since Sam and Max are willy-nilly pushing buttons and doctoring bombs using swiss knifes and stuff, my guess is that yep, she's dead (and probably spinning inside her coffin fast enough to time-travel).

  9. So, ummm...

    Just wondering, would you consider the animated series to be a part of the same continuity as the games and/or comics?

    Sorry for such a ridiculously nerdy question.

  10. Mr Siegal-- I don't worry about the continuity of any of the stories or ancillary characters. For me the only continuity is Sam & Max themselves. If I was doing a new comic story I would not fret about trying to make it it fit seamlessly in any of the existing material.

  11. Yeah, I have that DVD at home!

    Steve, I have another question... would you consider starting a new Sam and Max animated series... but this time, darker, and edgier, more intense, more daring, more action-packed... and for Adult Swim?

    Or would you consider going the motion comic route and bringing new life to classic tales like "Monkeys Violating The Heavenly Temple" and "Bad Day On The Moon"? Or maybe both... that'll make a lot of Sam and Max fans happy just in case Telltale has no plans to make any new Sam and Max games.

    (If you do make a motion comic, PLEASE let Bill Farmer and Nick Jameson voice Sam and Max in this one. I think Bill's done voicework in motion comics before, like the Jonah Hex one for instance...)

  12. great art! I really like the style and like how the composition looks like a skull eye, is it a coincidence that some days ago someone at the telltale forum asked about the geek in the future games? :D

  13. The file cabinet says "Purcell" on it. Or is that just you signing the picture...

    Also, what's with the DeSoto on the lamppost?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Not a filing cabinet, but Steve's box o'comics?

    ReplyDelete
  15. waitohooru-- No plans to do motion comics. If I had any time I'd rather do something new.
    Cody--The DeSoto is on a lift like in a garage. The tank above is providing life-giving nutrients but makes the whole thing look like a street lamp. Oops.
    Postmaster-- That is a box o'comics. That's just about all the comics I have.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Okay, thanks for clearing that up for me Mr. Purcell.

  17. Steve -- That's odd, I thought a Sam and Max motion comic would be new, I mean, we've never actually had one yet...

    By "something new" what did you mean?

    ReplyDelete
  18. So the Geek may not be in the coffin? I can see Sam and Max taking out her body from the coffin and using her bones as a test dummy of some sort to do their own brand of forsenic or weapons testing; for instance, testing a weapon to distinergrate human bones in case they encounter indestructable undead skeletons.

    Perhaps they have her set up as one of those skeletons like in a typical science class. Would be fitting since the Geek dedicated her life to science. I can see them stuffing the skeleton in a closet somewhere for safe keeping. Would give a double meaning to the phrase "Skeletons in the closet."

  19. Are you working on Cars 2 at Pixar right now?

  20. Steve -- As much as I would like the new... I'd also like it if the Sam and Max fans were allowed to revisit the past... you know, the good old days. The days of fighting fearsome foes like Mack Salmon and Krotalus... the days of road tripping and fizzball... I don't know, but a lot of it is just screaming to be animated into a motion comic.

    I know you've got a lot of cancelled projects. Maybe it might be a good idea to bring some of them back and include them alongside your new projects, hm? Can't hurt to take risks, Stevie! ;)

  21. As awesome as those stories are I'd love to see something new as well.

    I also don't think that the DeSoto looks like it is in a lamp post, it's very clear that it's a lift, it shows in the cartoons as well.

    I like the detail of the rat biting the wires... I thought that was an urban legend o.O

  22. Waitaminute-
    Isn't the head of the lollipop supposed to be turned on a 90 degree angle?

    3 levels of obscurity, my friend.
