I may have to rename this blog NEGLECTED. Sheesh. I need to try and keep better track of this thing with more regular posts.

It's been a busy couple of weeks on the job with prepping 2 sequences of boards for story reels, helping direct temp voice tracks for said reels, and providing design guidance for a set of maquettes and 3-D models.

I'm tired.

Any ways, I have of course managed to keep up my daily ritual of searching for inspiration through various blogs. Ted Mathot has been showing some cool process work and sneak peaks of his upcoming book ROSE AND ISABEL 2. The first book was great and if you don't have it, you should.

Any ways, I was inspired to do a drawing of one of his characters.

I will make an effort to post more regularly.

Please don't hate me Martin. I checked out you blog, I think a role reversal may be required. I may have to hate you. Really nice stuff.
