Non kosher

Piggy, Ink, charcoal, PS.

What's not to love about pigs? Good to draw and good to eat.

This is in honour of my 3 year old. Last night I told the kids to choose the books they wanted me to read. My son chose a children's book, whereas my daughter chose Muybridge's 'Horses and other animals in motion'.

Iphone short

I recently completed some BGs with my erstwhile buddies, Mysh Mashko, doing a short for an Iphone App. We completed this short in three weeks, whilst doing a bunch of other work, so we are, how do you say? -fairly chuffed with ourselves.

This is the establishing BG. I love anything involving planes, yum.

And here's the short.

The man is a genius

I love my work. I do.
And as I get further along, I find myself more and more drawn to the design process. some of us just fit that mold- visual geeks that love to collect things together, combine random scraps of ideas and impressions, searching for the right angle of attack. We can stop and look intently at the sky and try to figure out exactly what purple-ish blue it would take to recreate it.
IF this is your thing then, go check out Lou romano's latest post showcasing tons of his design process on Pixar's UP.

I love this guy- Totally, completely creative. I just love the fact that he's working at the worlds most successful CG animation studio, and he figures things out with little model dioramas and spotlights on his desk.

Here's a great example of his searching for that elusive 'feel'- editing design visuals with music. filmaking with images. Love it.
