If you’ve ever fancied owning some original Brendan McCarthy artwork several pieces are now up for sale on Rufus Dayglo’s Artdroids site. Artwork includes the cover to Brendan’s recent issue of Solo plus some of his design work for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. You can find all of the pieces on sale here.

The Turtle designs aren’t from the original 1990 film (which Brendan did do storyboard and design work for). These are from a movie proposal put together by original Turtles director Steve Barron in 2001 which never got to the production stage.

Brendan: "I recently found this old VHS showreel inside a cobwebbed cardboard box in a storage room. It features art and designs from over a decade ago. Some of what's there looks a bit dated, as you'd expect, but it's a fun little romp nonetheless."

Here's some of that exclusive artwork I was talking about. Brendan recently did some storyboard work for Tim Burton’s new film Sweeney Todd...

Brendan: “I worked on designs for the opening credits for Tim Burton's Sweeney Todd. It's almost shot for shot how I boarded it!”

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street opens in the UK on January 25th.
