You think YOU have good ideas? Buddy, Schrab has packed his new book with concept sketches, storyboards and full pitch illustrations from a career of being the weirdest ideas man in the room. Schrab is currently a TV director, but over the years he has been SO MUCH MORE!
Want sketches from "Heat Vision and Jack," Schrab's (in)famous TV pilot where Jack Black is the smartest man on Earth and Owen Wilson is his wise-cracking talking motorcycle partner? It's in there! How `bout monsters and robots from the mind behind the animated film "Monster House," `cause Mr. Schrab wrote that one, too. Still not satisfied? What about mummy cowboys, Traffic Light automatons, mutant smack downs, Grannies armed with atomic rabbits and MORE insanity from the writer/artist of the multi-award winning comic book Scud: the Disposable Assassin?
Every artist knows that good ideas are not an easy thing to come by. Schrab has so many so many bizarrely brilliant ideas he feels confident he can put them in his new book and let them float away like a tiny, paper boat down the storm drain of the mass market into the sewer of your imagination.
Schrab's art style is a fun, fast pastiche of marker and muck that will send you down memory lane. Schrab draws like the coolest middle-school kid you've ever seen. Lacking gloss, thankfully free of pretension and with little computer coloring, Schrab manages to capture the panic stricken gestalt of trying to stay immature through maturity while still earning a dime.
TO BE FAIR: You might hate this book as it will shatter your self-image as a freaky, weird comics genius. Your drawing of Lobster-Apes will surely pale in comparison to Schrabs. Now that you're warned, however, I urge you to buy it now! "But I Can't Do Anything Else" is guaranteed to make the 13-year-old drooling insaniac inside of you want to pick up a pencil/your nose.
