Man Of Steel Soundtrack (Deluxe Edition) composed by Hans Zimmer.

Hans Zimmer does it again with his mellifluous score to the 'Man of Steel'.  While viewing the latest incarnation of Superman in an IMAX theater,  Zimmer's salient soundtrack permeated throughout the film with its melodious blends and strong percussions.  My favorite piece on the cd is track #17 'What Are You Going To Do When You Are Not Saving The World?'  This one really gave me goosebumps the first time I heard it.

Here's the entire Soundtrack (Deluxe Edition) via youtube:


 Tracklist:

00:00 Look To The Stars
02:52 Oil Rig
04:17 Sent Here For A Reason
07:53 DNA
11:04 Goodbye My Son
12:56 If You Love These People
15:51 Krypton's Last
17:37 Terraforming
27:10 Tornado
29:46 You Die Or I Do
32:41 Launch
35:06 Ignition
36:13 I Will Find Him
38:56 This Is Clark Kent
42:26 I Have So Many Questions
45:37 Flight
49:43 What Are You Going To Do When You Are Not Saving The World?
54:29 Man Of Steel (Han's Original Sketchbook)
01:22:23 Are You Listening, Clark?
01:23:52 General Zod
01:30:42 You Led Us Here
01:33:22 This Is Madness
01:36:54 Earth
01:42:58 Arcade

Here's a  behind the scenes featurette about creating the drums for the Man Of Steel Soundtrack.
Drummers featured include: Matt Chamberlain, Sheila E., Josh Freeze, Pharell Williams, Danny Carey, John JR Robinson, Jason Bonham, Satnam Ramgotra, Toss Panos, Jim Keltner, and more!



BTW - I'm a HUGE aficionado of John Williams' 'Superman: The Movie' musical score. It's one of my top ten favorite soundtracks. Here's a lovely suite courtesy of youtube:

A Blast from the Past: In Living Color!

An old illustration I did in college of the 'In Living Color' cast. I was trying to emulate my favorite artist at the time, the virtuosic Drew Struzan. The layout is based on the iconic ‘Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom’ movie poster. (Painted in dyes and color pencil. Circa 1992)


Here's a link to a cropped detail of 'The Fly Girls':


Many years later I was working with the Wayans Bros. and I showed this illustration to them on my first day. Shawn jocosely punched me in the gut for not including 'DJ SW1' with the Fly Girls! :)
