Cobra Kai Edits – Cobra Kai renewed for a third season!!

I’m not sure if I’ve ever mentioned this before but my other burning passion besides Star Wars, of course, is the hit YouTube streaming show Cobra Kai. For those of you who don’t know anything about it, it’s basically a show all about the two main characters from The Karate Kid universe; Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) and how they’ve managed to survive 30 years after The Karate Kid.

Season One basically follows Johnny’s story and let’s just say he’s pretty down and out and living a life void of friendship, love and well, just about anything good. You also get to see Daniel LaRusso who is the picture perfect example of the high-life in Los Angeles; he’s successful and has a loving relationship with a lovely family. Obviously, these two people living very different lives somehow collide, and that’s the basic premise for Season One.

Season Two which released a couple of weeks ago, picks up exactly where the first season dropped off introducing one of Johnny’s worst enemy’s in John Kreese who is very much alive and kicking (no pun intended). And yesterday they just officially announced Season Three but also confirmed that all episodes would be FREE on YouTube Premium! Honestly, that’s a huge deal because the first two seasons are subscriber-only access. So I think it’s safe to say the show is doing really, really well.

To celebrate this fandom and my journey forward into Graphic Design, I made a few edits for Season Three. I hope you like them and if not, that’s OK too 🙂 This is best place to post what I create until I’m game enough to start a portfolio of my own on Behance or Instagram 🙂

All about the Cobra that slithered its way into my life

I dunno if anyone noticed that my avatar changed a while back. Well, I changed it because I had a new pop culture thing to geek out on. See I’m a VERY big geek and in lots of different ways; I’m a HUGE movie geek, in fact, movies next to video games are one of my favourite of all things to do. I have a Letterboxd profile with thousands of movies logged (and honestly, I don’t think I’ve even catalogued half of the movies I’ve seen in my illustrious pursuit of being a cinephile to reckon with). And I also happen to really love TV shows (even though I don’t technically use my TV for actually watching TV in the traditional sense).

So I’d like to introduce anyone that gives a crap to my other latest fun thing to follow, the YouTube Premium show called Cobra Kai. For anyone that doesn’t know what that is, basically, it’s the continued story of Johnny Lawrence (the badass blonde bully in The Karate Kid) and Daniel (well, if you don’t know who Daniel is, you might need to do a little bit of catching up fam). The catch is it’s picking up on their lives 34 years after the original movie was released! So go watch The Karate Kid – THE ONLY Karate Kid movie that really matters is the original 1984 film starring Pat Morita, Ralph Macchio and William Zabka. That’ll catch you up a whole lot and then you can start watching Cobra Kai 🙂 See there is a method to my madness after all.

Oh Johnny, please be my Sensei!

I don’t know anyone that hasn’t loved this show. The trailer for the first episode has had over 40 million views. And hey, if Cobra Kai isn’t your cuppa tea, that’s all good. We can still be friends 🙂

Darth Maul and my absence from the fandom…

Hey everyone (assuming people still read this blog). I’ve been a long time away from posting here but it’s not without good reason. Almost a month or so ago something happened to me while I was playing SWTOR. Something inside me just broke. Ever since then, I haven’t been able to bring myself to play. I don’t know why it happened but it just did. So I took a breather from the fandom and today is the first time I’ve thought about creating more SW motion art in a while, which is why I haven’t posted here. I still update my IG but not as often as I used to. I am still on Pinterest and Twitter but in a reduced capacity. I’ve actually been pulled back into an old fandom of mine for the Karate Kid franchise and I’ve been hanging out mostly on Tumblr with other like-minded fans of the movie and the new YT Red show, Cobra Kai.

I can’t explain exactly how I feel about things. I am still trying to figure it all out but for now, I’ve decided to keep creating motion art because someone on IG sent me a really nice message and it’s helped to motivate me back into creating stuff.

So for anyone who still frequents this blog, this is for you, and thank-you for sticking with me, even though I’ve been a fairly crappy blogger of late.
