Doll Sketches

I've slowly, but steadily been scanning in and taking pictures of some water color sketches. Turns out that obscenely large paper and small scanners don't mesh well together. Who would've thought?

Any suggestions on how to upload traditional pictures without sacrificing color?

Oh, and these are all sketches of Estella. The "pretty" doll in the toy shop. Stay tuned...still more to come!

Midnight Escape

I always return to this Broken Dolls story every December. This year, I've given the story a complete overhaul. Be prepared for an onslaught of sketchy later posts, of course. For now, I'm going to curl up with a nice cup of soup, recover from my stomach flu, and watch some martial arts films.

Ahhh....Christmas. xD

Is everyone having a wonderful winter holiday? I hope so!

Bon Voyage

Hey everyone! Hope you are having a wonderful week! This has been such an exciting month so far! Mon Monde was featured in the animation block of the Savannah Film Festival, so I was able to fly back to Georgia for the weekend. Saw a lot of really wonderful films and had the chance to get to know a lot of really kind and talented directors! Most importantly, I was able to meet up with a lot of my Monty possie and take a look at some of their production work for their own individual projects. Let me just say, we have some very gifted filmmakers at SCAD! The whole weekend just left me feeling very inspired and now I can't wait to get back to the drawing board and start developing concepts for my next film....which has yet to be announced. xD

The following week, Harley Jessup gave a presentation about his involvement on Ratatouille and about the production process in general at PIXAR. Not to mention, the museum he was speaking at had an entire corridor dedicated to PIXAR's visual development from Toy Story to...well, Toy Story 3. Ha ha ha! Needless to say, my mind was blown. So much beautiful artwork!

And now...with Thanksgiving less than a week away, I will be attending the CTN Animation Expo.

SIGGRAPH was such a blast, I'm certain that this weekend is going to be absolutely magical! Hope to see you there!
