Oil on masonite, me in one of my favorite shirts, painted in a few hours for the GR works show “first 10″.
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.
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!
Heading over to our opening at the DTLA Art Walk tonight. Check out our host’s work, the Mr. Robert Reynolds.http://www.roberthreynolds.com/
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!

Working on a small set of paintings for a show in DTLA in September. This is a photoshop study for a painting I’ve been working on. Its nice to be done with overtime and have some time to paint.
I assume most of you following this blog are aware by now that I had a hand in the creation of Disney’s short Paperman last year. In case you haven’t seen it yet and are in LA next week it will screen at Siggraph along with the Electronic theatre program as well as before a special behind the scenes talk that Director John Kahrs and I, along with Jeff Turley, Brian Whited, and Amol Sarthe. The talk is free with an animation festival pass (50$ for one day) which gets you into a bunch of other screenings as well. Brian was the guy that wrote the software so if you really want to know how it all works by all means show up and ask a bunch of questions!
