Here is a cropped preview of a painting I recently finished for SPECTRUM submission. It is inspired in a way by one of our newest projects here at Moonbot. I'll post the entire painting soon... But I may want to tweak it a little bit and get it right. :)

More exciting stuff going on here at work, and I'll share it with you when I can.


WORLD PREMIERE of Morris Lessmore!

I'm so stoked to announce that our first film at Moonbot Studios, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, is having its world premiere at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, in just a couple weeks!

You can check out the schedule on the SBIFF.org site and see all the cool contending films this year. We are in the "animation 2" qualifying category, and we hope you get to the festival and check it out!



Here are more recent sketching pages. Relaxing and brushing up on old man faces:

and setting a goal with drawing ability for graphic novels, sequential art, illustration and storyboards...

Task 1= hands:

These are all done with a light Copic marker then inked with a Pentel Pocket brush pen.

I'll post more Morris Lessmore design work and production art soon, as well as some other little things we're working on here at Moonbot.

Just on a random fun note, I watched Pixar's UP again last night... once again, brilliant.
