Fellow Artists

Working with fellow craftsman is exhilarating, refreshing, motivating, and inspiring. I'm fortunate to currently be in an environment where a lot of young and fresh talent is around me and hungry.

Too many names to call them all out, but today I'll share one. Every time a valiant member of our Moonbot team moves on, we have a tradition of caricaturing them. Being a former caricaturist, this falls upon my hands. It is always bittersweet.

Today I'm merely sharing one of these sketches with you. Animator Dominic Pallotta. A stand-up, talented man.

Post-It and NUMBERLIES

We are swinging full on a big production here at Moonbot Studios, as well as painting a fully-illustrated picture book. With all this 'big' art being done, it's fun to take breaks to do 'small' art in my spare time. I've been doodling with a ball-point pen on Post-It notes during meetings and lunches.

Sunni Brown gave a wonderfully inspiring and fun TED talk on doodling and how it benefits the workplace/school. It's really great, and only 5 minutes long, so you should watch it!

Here is a snapshot of one of our story meetings last week:

Oh yeah...

Morris Lessmore DODOcase

It was really fun illustrating and designing the DODO case sticker for the Morris Lessmore iPad case. If you've got an iPad, pick one up!
