I haven’t dropped off the face of the earth, I’ve just been busy. Late last year I started work on Big Hero 6 as Head of Animation along with Zach Parrish. We’re working hard and it doesn’t leave all that much time for personal painting. I can’t wait to show the world in the fall 2014! Disney released a simple city test on the web a few weeks ago. Take a look!

Got back into the studio last week with sean cheetham. I was missing scarlet lake, must have fallen out of my bag or something… making the warmer skin tones pretty tough.
Paperman is out there in the world!
What a few people out there are saying about #paperman, the short I supervised the animation on last year. I’m so happy the world can watch it now in theatres, before Wreck it Ralph…
“SWEET MOTHER OF GOD WRECK IT RALPH AND PAPERMANARE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THINGS I’VE EVER SEEN”
“Also the Disney Animated short Paperman was Pixar-level incredible. Wish they could use that animation style on a feature length film.”
“Wreck-It Ralph was pun-tastically entertaining & Paperman was one of the most breathtaking shorts I’ve ever seen.”
“Wreck-It-Ralph is a pleasant surprise and Paperman is one of the most amazing looking shorts I’ve ever seen!”
Go See it this weekend!
If you happen to be going to ctnx John Kahrs, Jeff Turley, Sarah Airess and I will be doing a Q and A panel.
… and if you’ve been to see it already, Thanks!

Showing Paintings this Thursday the 13th
I’m incredibly excited to be a part of a group show at this weeks Art Walk in downtown Los Angeles. I live downtown and love the throngs of revelers the walk brings to the neighborhood every month and am glad to finally be able to contribute. There are a ton of incredible names in this show. Glen Keane and Bruce Smith of Disney Fame will be showing work. Along with current Disney Animation Designers Jeff Turley and Shiyoon Kim, and many others. Much of the show will be for sale with a percentage going to charity. Come down, meet the artists, get some one of a kind original art, have a drink, hit up a food truck!
