The Film One by mildtarantula The Film One by mildtarantula
here's an illustration i did last december for an upcoming zine organized by mat pringle called "the film one". each illustrator was asked to choose their favourite film and draw and write two A5 pages about it, and i chose beetlejuice :D

i'm not sure when it's coming out though...it's the end of march now, so, i'm uploading this here anyway ^^;

man i haven't submitted anything in ages OTZ i'm sorry guys, university and hemlock are eating my life. i try and reply to all comments at least!

Love your take on these characters... especially Lydia. It's a great mix of both the movie and the animated series plus your own original spin on them. Excellent work!

What do you think of it compared to the movie? xD I know that's such a hard question to ask, but no hate over here. <3 I liked them both but they seemed a little different, ya'know?

i love them both :XD: it's like, beetlejuice as a cartoon was perfect for when i was a little kid, then when you get older, beetlejuice the movie (i saw the cartoon before i even knew it was a movie). though, the cartoon hasn't aged all that well...i still love the drawing style and animation, but the writing doesn't hold up as well i think.

The writing doesn't hold up? I haven't seen it since I was a child, I guess I'd have to recap on it to get what you mean (?).

there are a bunch of episodes on youtube i think. i just mean that the writing and dialogue are very 1980s :XD:
