Why You Should Give John Carter A Chance to Blow Your Mind!
April 4, 2012

Shades of Caruso 2.0.

I know most James Purefoy fans have seen the film and most if not all of you have loved it. But are there some of you out there who have not gone to see it yet? You should, because it’s freakin’ awesome and James is like an angel fallen from heaven he’s so stunning in it!!

The film has not been treated fairly, in the US especially. Thousands of fans of the film are gathering to fight for a sequel. There are several tears to our campaign for John Carter.

1. To spread the best word of mouth far and wide. To turn the tide of negative reviews (of which there are only a few but they got blown WAY out of proportion) so that people will go see it!

2. To petition Disney, or another studio, for a sequel. We have a petition for this very thing and I would hope ALL James fans would go sign it.

3. To contact all of the cast, crew, and director to send positive and encouraging messages. To share with them how much we love the film and hopefully keep them positive toward the sequels, which we WILL make happen!

Below are a few addresses to write to several of the actors and Andrew Stanton, the director, as well as Rich Ross of Disney to express your feelings on how the marketing was mishandled for the film and how much you want the trilogy to get made. All letters should be kind. Some fans are rather upset over how things were handled, but it’s best to keep harsh language and anger at bay and instead approach all communications with class.

Gettin’ Artsy over John Carter of Mars
December 6, 2009

I’ve been so fired up about James starring in John Carter of Mars that I’ve immersed myself in the entire Mars series by Edgar Rice Burroughs. I love these stories and the characters. So, attempting to do more artwork and keep my skills from waning any worse than they have been, I’ve done some digital paintings. First I’ll share the James Purefoy as Kantos Kan painting I did in ArtRage2:

I’m not totally happy with the above image, but overall like it. Some of my skills are so very rusty it’s harder to get the vision in my head to come out right. But it’s slowly.. oh so slowly, coming back to me. 🙂

Next is my image of John Carter’s faithful “hound” Woola. Inspired by the scene in book 1 “A Princess of Mars” where JC demonstrates affection to the “hideous creature” for the first time. Woola is just bursting with utter joy. LOL

And lastly, created in Photoshop CS4, my painting of Ghek from Chessmen of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs. A very bizarre and rather creepy character that I just love.

It will be very interesting to see how Disney / Pixar interprets the wonderful visions created by ERB. I’ve sure enjoyed painting them up how I see them when I read his marvelous stories. ~Khanada
