Maggi saying 'Goodbye' to Sportacus

Journal Entry: Sun Oct 12, 2014, 10:28 PM


10/13 - I’m always willing to be optimistic first and look at changes in a positive light, but I really fear that this just might be the final nailing in the casket for LazyTown, the sound of which has already been wafting in the air since Chloe Max Lang replaced Julianna. Poor Chloe has yet to be accepted 100% as Stephanie by the older original fan base that clamored to the show’s first two seasons ---But at least I was hopeful with Chloe and I was. After all people get older and you can’t stop that from happening. As a matter of fact that very truth played a huge role in the back story of the ‘Sports Candy’ doujin I had done; that Stephanie was growing older and thus facing new challenges.

All in all, I’m pretty diehard when it comes to my dedication towards a fandom I truly enjoy. I’ll put up with whoooooooole lot for its sake, but I’m just really hitting the big snag here over this. I really feel that they should have --if it truly has to come to this-- just introduced a new superhero, introduce Number 11, rather than to replace Sportacus’ actor and attempt to fill the impossible boots of Maggi Scheving. From LazyTown’s original books, to stage, and then mainstream television, where other characters’ actors have changed in the route, Magnus has ALWAYS been Sportacus. He IS 'Íþróttaálfurinn! If that isn’t enough, I am very angry that they are taking the product’s production from its homeland. That really just strikes a personal nerve in me for some reason. When I did the ‘Sports Candy’ for instance, I made it so that the manga would be translated in Icelandic and also that it carried many of the show’s origin Icelandic elfin elements and themes. That was important to me to have that done. Taking LazyTown from Iceland is like taking the Japan out of anime. It feels very wrong and I wonder if Icelanders feel robbed of their cultural childhood. I would.

I just don’t feel good about this. The whole thing. I’m trying, but hmm... You know? And you can’t say I haven’t tried. I’ve been thinking about this since I first heard the rumor some months back that Magnus would be retiring from the role. I kept waiting for that proverbial 'feel good ember' to start glowing about it like it did for Chloe and yet I feel no different now than I did then. I wish nothing but the best for Maggi and it’s very possible that his say is limited about this. He sold the company after all and that’s business. I don’t know. I don’t like it. Stefan’s ‘like’ on the Facebook regarding my feelings about it also seems to agree. I don’t like the way the replacement looks at all and I might just have to throw the towel in this time around.

LT - Leap, Solla Go! 2
Leap, Solla! Go!

Different angle and close-up on Sports Candy’s version of Sportacus I am doing for the ‘Leap, Solla’ pic. As many of you already well know SC’s was based upon the hair style and features of his creator and actor Magnús Scheving:

LT - Leap, Solla Go! by Shinjuchan

Dusting off my ‘rust’ if you will. This is the first illustration, manga/comic art I’ve attempted to do since my corrective surgery this past July. How’s it coming? Just pencils at the moment. Not finished w/ Stephanie’s legs. I spent most of the remainder of that month recovering before taking on some seasonal paper mache projects in August to start for Halloween. (Btw, you’ll find 30 WIP and completion photos of those projects up on my Deviant right now if you would like to see them) Crafting for me was the best way to mimic what I was already doing in physical therapy. Aside from pulling strings, throwing balls, and writing my name several times, I was also squeezing play dough.

I still get asked a lot about ‘Sports Candy’ and honest to God I really want to see this complete and up for all of you. I want to see it in print and know that you all feel the same. I have news to share about this —What happen, why did it happen, and what’s going to happen that I’ll be sharing later. Much of which is the obvious. My health at the time just would not allow me to do so and I had a lot of stubborn denial over that fact. I was also fighting the ‘powers that be’ to not cancel the damn thing after all of the hard work I had put into it! (Details later.) It’s been a climb and I thank you all for putting up with that assortment of headaches.

Paper Mache Halloween projects 30 by Shinjuchan
Paper Mache Halloween projects 30
Paper mache Halloween project 30

Last one for Paul here with a close-up on his tag. This one is # 3. Six were made in this first batch with each one individually tagged, numbered, and personally signed. Hand-crafted original papier-mâché, matte-sealed solid body composite w/ flexible limbs using festooning garland, cloth, and acrylics. Figure sits at 6" inches tall with a total length of roughly 14" inches (including hat)

FACTS ABOUT PLOTS-N-TOMBSTONES’ ENDURING MASCOTS

► Undertaker Fox along w/ his feline manager Paul have been welcoming members into the ‘Plots-n-Tombstones’ Undertaker Fanclub for 23 years and are as old as the fan club itself, appearing on many of its original advertisements.

► Rather than Death Valley, the Undertaker Fox has always been billed as hailing ‘from Stephen King’s Pet Sematary’. The running gag being that he is actually ‘road kill’ with Paul Bearer expressing once that he was a cousin of the Creed’s cat ‘Church’.

► The Fox’s appearance and attire changed each and every time his human counterpart did on WWE television products.

► Sadly, the Paul Bearer cat character was retired in 2013 following the passing of Moody. His appearance today is limited to historical and vintage UT moments and other speciality releases such as this.

I have actually been far more busy in art these last several weeks than my profile is able to vouch for —Well, unless you happen to follow me around on Facebook.where I’ve been posting this, my recent endeavors, only to end up too lazy in the evening to post them here. I’m a procrastinator. I know it. Forgive me.

These are paper mache works in process since 8/15/14 to completion earlier this week on a special Halloween edition shelf-sitter design featuring the Plots-n-Tombstones Undertaker Fan Club’s mascots as well as vintage-style themed Halloween ornaments also made of paper mache.

Paper Mache Halloween projects 29 by Shinjuchan

Paper mache Halloween project 28

Different angles. 1 of 6 Paul Bearer figures that were made total in this first batch. Each one was individually tagged, numbered, and personally signed. Hand-crafted original papier-mâché, matte-sealed solid body composite w/ flexible limbs using festooning garland, cloth, and acrylics. Figure sits at 6" inches tall with a total length of roughly 14" inches (including hat)

This ended up being more labor intensive than I had figured. Truly a labor of passion and love and not all a complaint. My reason for stating is because the prototype for the Undertaker Fox was created and casted, but I was not able to even start replicating him until just earlier this week. I have my concerns whether or not he will be finished in time for Oct 31st. If he does not release together with Paul I will showcase him, but he will release for the following season

Hey, I just came to your page from seeing some of your art and saw your journal entry. I understand how difficult many of the problems you're experiencing can be, from horrible doctors to the inability to draw and I'm so sorry you have to deal with them. You're very skilled and I love your sense of humor.
As far as followers needing to hear 'something', do NOT worry about that. The people who really care will stay no matter what happens or how long you're away. Please, take care of yourself first. It doesn't do to push yourself now and cause more harm in the future. I'd rather see 1000 pictures later, than know you're in pain trying to get 1 done now.
I don't know if this will mean anything to you but: I'm praying for you. For you to have strength to deal with the trials on your plate right now. And confidence and peace for any struggles that may be hurting you.
We're rooting for you out here in the DA world. :)*hugs*
