This should be pretty sweet. Dash and crew have started a production blog for the new feature animated film they are producing, The Ruined Cast (previously posted about here). About the blog, Dash notes: “The idea is to have a place to show drawings that otherwise wouldn’t be seen, and have a forum to write about pre-90s anime and other cartoons I feel are under appreciated”. Nice. I am very excited about a new animated, independent feature being produced. The drawing above was posted on the blog and appears to be drawn by Frank Santoro, who is one of the artists working with Dash on the movie.
The trailer is below:
