Damn, son.
So, what it boils down to, is that i'm way too excited to keep this from you, especially since an insane amount of people already got to see it at the San Diego Comic Con this past week, and you guys deserve to see it in its true form, not the weird low-res vid-cam versions that we keep taking down from YouTube haha.

So, please check out the very first actual footage from my upcoming series, CHADAM, and please do what you can to help SPREAD THIS AROUND AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE, AS I AM MORE THAN PROUD OF WHAT THIS IS BECOMING!!!!

direct link to video:

Some additional info about the "CHADAM" animated series:
"Cutting-edge artist Alex Pardee and producer Jason Hall of HDFILMS Inc. are teaming up on a 3D animation project based upon Pardee’s character of the same name. Initially introduced as a character icon for the popular rock band The Used, Chadam has become an Internet phenomenon.

Chadam lives as the "chosen one" in the hyper-stylized and exaggerated metropolitan island city of Vulture. His power of imagination is strong enough to physically change his environment and, therefore, his world … to save it from evil. The series will find Chadam in a place of refuge where he and others have retreated to plan their attack against a serial killer known as Viceroy.

A dark, emotional action-horror-adventure fantasy story filled with self-discovery, Chadam will come to full 3D animated life via the magic of the Unreal Engine 3, the leading technology and development framework that powers cutting-edge games such as Gears of War and BioShock on today’s popular platforms, including PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The Internet series will serve as an incubator for future expansion of the Chadam universe, from additional online episodes to television, film, videogames and more."

And please make sure you ADD CHADAM AS YOUR FRIEND because he will be releasing a lot more exclusive images and secrets and stuff over there the more progress we make. And you can check out his stories over there too, which will guide you though a little of our world so you can imagine what to expect from the movie.

Yo Yo (my favorite female rapper from 1993),
So, its monday night and i am leaving for COmic Con in like 7 hours, and we are just now packing. I'm caravanning down there with 2 carloads of people and product, and we will probably die. And then get our caskets mistakenly shipped to Sydney and be reborn as undead koalas who fight for deserved equal rights of zombie marsupials.
Or we will just come home broke with a bunch of free Watchmen posters.

Speaking of free stuffs....

I will be floating around various sections of the Convention all 5 days, so come hunt me down. I would wear my Where's Waldo outfit to make me easier to find but i'm sure 30 other assholes will be wearing that anyway....

Here is where i will be and what times and what you will get if you find me in certain locations. I will probably be really nervous to meet you, but please say hi anyway. I will greatly appreciate it.

My CHADAM animated movie will be unveiled at SDCC!!


So, for the last year and a half, I have been working on a fully 3-D animated movie with Warner Bros & HD Films based on my character, Chadam, that i created for THE USED.
I am learning a ton and it has been quite a ride. I have been lucky enough to be involved in every aspect of the project, from the initial concept, to the script, the storyboards, the animation, the voice-acting, etc. And so far, it has been kept under wraps.

But now I am happy to say that this week, at the insanely large San Diego Comic Con, you will finally be able to see a glimpse of what we have in store for you.

A teaser including the first footage ever shown publicly will be playing on a loop the entire convention on the 
JumboTron in the PROBABLY RIDICULOUSLY LARGE WARNER BROS booth as well as before select private screenings.

And I will be signing free locker posters created exclusively for 
Comic Con at the WBTV booth ONLY on:

Thursday, July 24 @ 5:00-6:00pm
Friday, July 25 @ 3:30-4:15pm

I'm trying to get as many people as I can to show up and say hi because this whole project has been a long time coming and just to fight for the chance to debut it at SDCC means that I need everyone's support to come through the booth and show everyone that we rule.

Oh, by the way, if you have been following CHADAM'S STORIES
...The poster will feature your first ever look at Simkin, Sandy, Ripley....and even VICEROY...but that's another story alltogether.

Here is a teaser of a teaser poster;)
Is that Simkin in the background?

So make sure you tell your friends about this, and warn everyone of the awesomeness that is CHADAM.


Comic con Ecxlusive Limited Print release!!!

When i was growing up, i thought a majority of the DC comics universe was lame based solely on my first dive into their world, which went something like this:

"Oh wow, rad. That dude swims and can talk to seahorses, who are most probably AMAZING conversationalists! What? Who's AquaLAD? His young FRIEND? He rides a MANATEE!? He's a LAD? What the fuck is that?!"

But then the SuperFriends toys came out in the early 80's and I was obsessed with the toys and the cartoon and discovered Batman. Since then, I have always admired Batman because he was a self-made super hero. He didn't get struck by lighting, fall in a toxic fire, get bit by a super smart ant, and wasn't from another planet or dimension. He was a rich, smart kid who watched his parents get murdered and he grew into a rich smart older dude who thirsted for revenge. He was Charles fucking Bronson, only HUMAN. He worked with the cops. He hooked up with girls based on their looks. He got hurt. He DETECTED. He lied. He loved. He wore a disguise because, even though its a fictional city, there are still fictional laws and you can't just go around revenge-killing because you're rich enough to have a Manor named after you. He even pulled some Leon The Professional shit and took in the extra responsibility of a kid only to turn that kid that wasn't his into a tiny, stupid-colored little version of him. That's good parenting. Whether he was cleaning up after the Joker had fled Arkham Asylum for the 8th time, or babysitting Gleek with the Wonder Twins, he kept his fucking cool, and bathed in vengeance.

So, to honor one of my favorite Super Heroes, I asked the now-ridiculously-popular-because-of-his-new-movie-which-may-be-one-of-my-favorite-movies-of-all-time, elusive hero to take some time to sit for me while I painted his portrait. He obliged, but what do you know, during the sitting, who decided to parachute in? A handful of Supervillains that WE BOTH THOUGHT WERE LOCKED UP OR DEAD!! But I guess that's the life of Batman. (Sighhh).

The portrait was painted and he and his Rogues went on their way. And now, in celebration of my favorite place on the planet, ZEROFRIENDS will be releasing a super limited Giclee print of my portrait of the Batman (and his crappy little nuisances) exclusively at the SAN DIEGO COMIC CON this week!!!!
