In 1982, Thriller taught the world a fact little known out side of monster circles: Zombies are excellent dancers. That, and syncronised dancing is terrifying. 

Since then little has been done with either. We on El Tigre are proud to have done our part to bring the horror of syncronised dance to a new generation, and I think we managed to maintain and honor the proud dancing zombie tradition, picking up the mantle our forefathers dropped. 

Board artist Eddie Trigueros and I both drew our dance inspiration from figures of animation history. Eddie looked to legendary animator Ub Iwerk's Skeleton Dance. I looked to animation great MC Scat Cat, and his colaboration with Paula Abdul

Alt Ending

Oops! I forgot to post my beatboards for the alternate ending. Some of my best work too!... Or at least the stuff I had the most fun drawing. Something about Tigre being evil really inspired me. It was also really rewarding to finally give Frida a legitimate hero moment. Her lack of super powers made her the butt of jokes thruout the series, so it felt great to board her one moment in the sun. 

Ricky Garduno and Eddie Trigueros added tons of great stuff in their boards. Directing duities were completed excellently by Gabe Swarr.

This was our attempt at a (mostly) silent episode - which is a really hard thing to do on a TV budget and schedule. Luckily everyone rose to the occasion. Scott Kreamer wrote a great script. Artist Sean Szeles added hilarious gags and did an amazing board. Boulder did the best TV animation of the year. And Composer Shawn Patterson did some of his finest work as well.

Good Bad El Tigre Pt 2

Back to posting.
Seven weeks ago we put El Tigre to bed officially. A sad, premature end to a great show.
Now I'm back working with my old friends on Fairly Oddparents, and a few new friends too.

But back to Tigre. I had been holding off on posting because we're not supposed post art for shows that haven't aired, and I thought I was out of broadcast shows. Turns out I was wrong.

Here's Pt 2 of The Good, The Bad, and El Tigre - which at the time I thought would be our last episode. A lot of fans did too.

Luckily we got 6 more half hours after this - all of which have now aired, and all of which I will be posting in the weeks to come.

The Good The Bad and El Tigre

Inspired by the greates motion picture of all time, Jean Claude VanDamme's Bloodsport, The Good the Bad And El Tigre is one ofd my favorites.

We had originally wanted all El Tigre episodes to be half an hour long. After the pilot we knew that the kind of stories Jorge wanted to tell would be difficult to tell in 11 minutes. With 30, we could tell an epic story, had lots of action and relax the pacing to let the jokes breathe. The Good The Bad And El Tigre gives you a pretty good look at what we had in mind.
