I first started this website nearly 7 years ago (I know, right), and those of you who have been here since day one know that it has changed quite a bit over the years—even the name has changed, going from Rhinews (so, so lame) to Rhino’s Horror before finally landing on what you see here: The Missing Reel. Change is necessary, especially when you’re trying to stand out from hundreds of other blogs and websites; it’s why I have always tried to mold my site in a way that made it feel different.
My goal with The Missing Reel has been to shape it into something that’s always evolving—whether it’s a title change, an aesthetic change, or even just a content change, I want to continue pushing myself and this website in new directions. That’s why I reached out to Jérémy Pailler and asked him to create something that’s wholly unique to The Missing Reel—something that would give it an identity of its own.
I’ve featured Pailler’s artwork on here many times, not only because it kicks an absurd amount of ass, but because of the way he interprets the genre in such a brilliant way—each piece tells an entire story and he captures that within a single, stunning image.
So with that said, I couldn’t be happier to announce that Pailler has created an original illustration for The Missing Reel (see above and below) and it, too, kicks an absurd amount of ass. And it turns out that not only is he an incredible artist, but he’s a genuinely great guy who was just as passionate and excited about this as I was. The result speaks for itself and so I’ll just leave it at that, and I truly hope you guys love it as much as I do.
