Animal Studies.

I love drawing animals. Wanting to push my skills in stylizing a bit, I started with these guys. They ended up still being more direct studies than the did "cartoon" characters. For the next batch I shall take them further.

First show of the year, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

The latest film I'm working on is coming out soon! Be sure to check it out. I think it's going to be very enjoyable. Weta Digital has done some incredible work once again.

Kitbash Mechs - Collection Two

This was mine and Kelly's second attempt at creating some mechs. We decided to make them much larger than last time. It did make them easier to paint, but that also meant a lot more pieces to put on. We started them late last year, but due to work we had to put them on hold. Ever since February we've been grinding away at them, and I think the end product paid off. We also did some green screen shooting with powder to emulate snow. It was a lot of fun and it made us feel like we were working on an old school Star Wars film.

Our work is also featured at Nuthin' But Mech's website, along side the best mech designers in the world. Definitely worth a visit if you're into robots/mechs/machines.

Here is the one I built.

A quick preview of Kelly's mech, be sure to check out the rest of her amazing work here.

Big Chicken and Kelly

I love monsters! What can I say. I've been fascinated with them for as far back as I can remember.

Kelly came up with this theme to draw a Monster, but in very contrasting situation. So here is my piece.

For those of you who don't know, Kelly is my most wonderful, beautiful, and talented girlfriend. You can find her art and entries here!

And here are few drawings/studies I've done of her.

An unexpected journey.

  Earlier this year I had the great privilege to be a guest speaker at ISB. Back to my roots, as I attended that school for 2 very amazing years. It was such a fun experience to go talk to all the students, and hopefully inspired some the same way I was inspired by  guest speakers in my youth. I found the Q&A sessions especially entertaining, as I was asked some very good questions. Not only about the industry, but about myself as well.

    I'd just like to say a very special thank you to Alegria and Mischele for everything. I couldn't have asked for better hosts. Thanks to Petch as well for pushing all this forward. And last but not least, I was extremely thrilled to go and check out the high school art class. It was definitely inspiring for me to see all the wonderful work that these students were up to. There was a lot of serious talent. 

   This weekend I found a fun little surprise in my post box. A thank you letter (with amazing original art!) from staff and students. I was overwhelmed with warm feelings. Thank you so much for this. 

   To the wonderful students I met from the high school art class, you guys are awesome.  It was great chatting with all of you about animation, art, movies, and even Imagineering!  You all are so incredibly talented. I look forward to seeing more of your work, and hopefully seeing you all again in the near future.
