Off to Vancouver!

Just a quick sketch/painting. I was listening to Amy Winehouse while drawing and was inspired. Her music reminds of the wonderful Ella Fitzgerald and makes me want to dance around.

So in a whirlwind of hiring and packing, I'm off to Vancouver for the summer to be a character designer at Rainmaker for their first animated film. I'm not sure how this will affect the blog as I can't easily take my scanner on a plane, but I will update when possible.

The graphic novel is still very much in the works (I am nearly done a complete rough of the entire story) and I am also beginning to work on a story for Flight 5.

And if I don't have a chance to update again soon, I will be at the Comic-Con in San Diego, either helping out at the Flight booth or running around spending too much money on art books. I will hopefully have some art prints for sale too. If you are there, come say hello! :)

Love the picture.

Congrats on the new gig - I am selfishly bummed that you won't be posting so much, though! I'll just have to look forward to your graphic novel, I guess!

I like much your works, they are of an extraordinary quality, and very personal. Luckily they have discovered your blog to me, or there was lost something to me important in this world. I will be happening, surely! A greeting from Spain. ;-D By the way, excuses my English, result of a automatic translator.

Great sketch, as always. The red linework lends a neat warmth to the face, like she's flustered from whirling about on the dance floor. I love it.

Awesome pic. Wow, I've always wanted to do character design for a film or show. But my drawing chops are rather ummmm limited. I can't wait to hear how it goes up there! I love Vancouver, great town. Are you going to make it down to Seattle at all?

DeepSleep said...

If it's the Escape from Earth movie, that looks really awesome. Don't forget to call Sara Jane and Roman. They are up there working at Vanguard this summer.
