i am trying out twitter..you can follow me here...a good place to share links i like, pictures of in progress stuff etc etc.
also here's an old sketch from my time on Rio. early in the story blu's caretaker was an olderlady...who sort of finds her youth in spirit as the story took everyone to brazil. these were early sketches for that take of the film. i'll post more rio stuff soon.
This was an exploration piece for my good friend trevor's personal project.
this one below was a different take on the short i've been developing. For a few weeks i ventured down this path, just to check it's validity. i liked some things about it, but i've leaned back to the original take. this is what remains :)
this space has been slow...sloooow, but not neglected. just been busy on projects. hopefully i can share them in a few years once the films start coming out. man...animation does take a long time does'nt it?
here's some work i can share. the image below is from some development work i did on Rio. i was helping out very very early in development when the project was still being pitched back in early 2007. i'll post some more under the work section later on in the week.
Also, some of my work from Rio is part of the current exhibit at the Norman Rockwell Museum ,' the animation art of bluesky'. I feel lucky some of my work was included, in company of some real stellar folk from bluesky.
this one is from a wonka commercial spot i helped on for Laika House, early last year. I got to work with some of the nicest folks on this, including the talented dir Nicholas Weigel. there's some more laika stuff i'll post soon...as soon as i find them :)
