    We're still on track for a Fall release of the book. Confirming the book's "introduction" writer this week and writing promo copy for the release. Here's a promotional from a few years back with an earlier version of the cover.

    OK so is there any chance we ARE getting this.. Been waiting years lololol 
    Zero chance for the book but 150% chance this guy finds some napkins in his attic with sketches on them that will be for sale. 
    Why do you say that? Everything's been approved so far.
    I have no insider info.  But the endless delays so far indicate there’s serious issues with the book production and when you couple that with a world wide pandemic that has impacted supply chains and logistics in almost every area it doesn’t look too good. 
    Early delays had to do with the bands approval. I forget what else. I guess you can look through the thread. Books have been released throughout this pandemic. 

    I'm not optimistic based on the track record.  I hope it shows up but I'm not hopeful.  He's still working on getting someone to write an introduction...

    Happy Memorial Day weekend for all of our American members. Have a wonderful time, but stay safe.

    I have some great news to share. I just received the final element in the Pearl Jam: Art of Do the Evolution book's long gestation; the Forward. And it's by none other then the video's seminal creative, Todd McFarlane!

    Todd was the creative originally approached by Eddie to make the video and he was the one that brought the project to me and Epoch Ink Animation to actually make it. Todd co-directed the video with Kevin Altieri. And it was Todd and the video's co-producer at TME, Terry Fitzgerald, who ran interference for the team at Epoch, forwarding all of our materials to Eddie and the band to insure approval and record turnarounds.

    I'm really happy about Todd coming on board with his Forward. Now the book has specific written commentary and material by ALL of the key creative's on the video (aside from Eddie). Co-director, Kevin Altieri has an extensive interview in the book, co-producer, Terry Fitzgerald contributed numerous stories, commentaries and anecdotes to the book, Deatj Girl designer, Brad Coombs details an evening spent jamming with his band and Eddie and Tim Robins, and I wrote and edited the main body of text.

    When you add in the massive collection of artwork; cells, storyboards and designs from Epoch's archives, and the unique deconstructed layout by Robbie Robbins, I think we've got one of the most complete books on the animation and creative process ever produced.

    This Fall will tell the tale. Thanks again all for your long suffering patience.

    Joe Pearson shared a link.

    We're still on track with IDW for a release of the book this Fall. I just reviewed a Press Release from them which will go out next week.

    In the meantime, here's a link a ripping and edgy music video that's part of a 40 minute release on Netflix. Great Japanese design and animation and a cool song. And sadly it feels very "timely" for these dark days.

    ‘Pearl Jam: Art of Do The Evolution’ Provides a Behind-The-Scenes Look at The Band





    Twenty-two years after legendary rock band Pearl Jam debuted their Grammy Award-nominated “Do The Evolution” music video, its hypnotic and shocking imagery is perhaps even more relevant to social and environmental issues than during the band’s 1998 Yield tour.

    Directed by visionary comics legend Todd McFarlane (Spawn) and veteran animator Kevin Altieri (Batman: The Animated Series), this achievement in animation told a graphic and dark history of the world in four gripping minutes and is widely considered one of the best music videos of all time.

    In October, IDW Publishing will release Pearl Jam: Art of Do The Evolution, a 200-page, full-color hardcover revealing the full story behind the creation of this historic video. Lushly illustrated by the video’s striking animation cells with never before seen storyboards and designs from the video, the video’s co-producer, Joe Pearson, will guide readers through the fascinating process of bringing the band’s vision to life in this one-of-a-kind art book.

    Todd McFarlane, in the book’s introduction, describes the Do The Evolution music video as “the history of mankind in as condensed a version as you will ever see. In this book, you’ll see and read about some of the process of how we pulled off such a Herculean task… It’s filled with so many wonderful examples of how dozens of creative people come together to put together what would soon become a Grammy-nominated video.”

    “Being able to produce this seminal animated video at my studio for Pearl Jam and to work with super talents like Eddie Vedder, Todd McFarlane, and Kevin Altieri was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” says Pearson. “And then to see the positive and continuing worldwide reaction of millions of fans to our group effort was the icing on this dense cake of edgy music and animation.”

    Justin Eisinger, IDW’s Editorial Director of Graphic Novels & Collections, says, “Pearl Jam’s Do The Evolution brings the threat of man’s quest for domination into stark, relatable terms, a theme that remains at the forefront of current conversation. Filled with bold imagery and layered visual storytelling that accentuates the already searing lyrics, McFarlane and Altieri created a video that spans the history of mankind. And now their groundbreaking work can be fully appreciated in this in-depth, behind-the-scenes book that explores how it all came together.”

    The Art of Do The Evolution hardcover is essential reading for new and longtime Pearl Jam devotees, animation and graphic design fans who recognize “Do the Evolution” as a high point in the field, and anyone with an acute interest in music video history.

    Pearl Jam: Art of Do The Evolution is currently available for pre-order via online booksellers and comic book specialty retailers. Visit www.comicshoplocator.com to find a store near you.

    And I do have good news to lighten your hearts in this troubled time. IDW's press release for the "PEARL JAM; ART OF DO THE EVOLUTION" book came out today and they are promoting an October release! I'd be less then honest, if I didn't admit that IDW has put a number of releases out promoting a publication dates that never occurred. It's been as frustrating for me as I know it's been for all of you. I have the word of IDW's current chief officer that this one is for real and is a go!

    AI Upscale: Pearl Jam - Do The Evolution



    BlueCop - I was playing with AI upscaling one of my favorite music videos. I thought some people might want to check out how it looks. The one on youtube has interlacing artifacts. I couldn't get a good clean source to work from but did the best I could.
