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.

Beware of Polar Bear

So, finally got around to doing my thank you notes from Christmas. I tried to do a little something extra this year turning my gift into a story that I then relayed to my gift giving relative with a drawing to go along with it; all in the form of a little thank you note.

Here's my favorite. Names blacked out to protect the innocent.

Rainy day

Hey look at that, it's another girl! And what's that she's leaning up against? A tree? I didn't see that one coming at all.

This was done for a new monthly thread feature taking place in the girls section of THE DRAWINGBOARD.

Check it out, there are some great drawings in there, and it's growing daily. Some of my favorites are by Rodguen (Rodolphe Guenoden) a very talented animator and storyboard artist at DreamWorks Animation. You can see more of his work at his website

More girls and trees

I drew this as a little thank you for someone.

Hmm, another girl with a tree, I'm sensing some sort of theme.
