crunch time at work..

Posted on Thursday 12 April 2007

so it’s been really busy at work.. We concept designers are slammed right now on Blue Sky’s new film, Horton Hears A Who.  I’m also trying to get to my comic as much as I can…which has been tough.  And my arm is hurting.. so much is happening in my private life… aghaghahga, I need a vacation.. need to go some where to paint… without thinking about work..

Another in progress image for my second book.  Still experimenting with cool shapes… I wanna do some oil painting to add to this

    Looking good man, looking good. Hope your arm gets better. I just came back from a 5 day vacation to Mexico with my family. I definitely needed that, hahah.

    Simply Awesome!
    Kurasawa would’ve been proud. why can’t this be the movie you and I be working on hey Dice??
    great drama…and the lighting, especially the contrasting cool blade set against the burning fortress, is masterful.

    Very nice allegory of you, fighting against deadlines…and that “inimitable subtle lighting touch”. I can’t wait to read this epic whole story dealing with your ancestors.
    You are welcome under the spring sun of France if you need some rest 😉 many stalker fans keep supporting you backstage, don’t give up under the pressure !

    Great shapes. This one feels powerful. I sympathize with your hectic schedule. Although you probably have it much worse than I do. Looking real forward to the Art of Horton book!

    hi everyone,
    thank you very much. too nice as always but support is always what we need as artists right?

    Dragon—
    thanks man. Wow, Mexico… i am jealous!

    JC–
    thanks James. Kurosawa?? heh heh. He would’ve pointed out all the wrong samurai outfit/armors in the illustration!

    Gerald–
    Merci!! we’ll see. I’m hoping people like this approach.

    Peter–
    heh, thanks buddy. You still support my work even though I make you do all the tough paintings at blue sky??

    MarkB—
    how’s it going? is your work winding down at all over at dreamworks? hope you are well!

    Tom–
    thank you. I’m glad my new approach appeals to you! I’ll try my best to make the rest as good.

    Rob–
    dude, it was good to see you a few weeks ago. let’s get togehter soon so I can return your book.

    jie—
    is this you? Master Jie?? What an honor!

    Alena–
    hey hey! first time you leave your comment here no? best sculptor ever!

    Roland–
    thank you. I might take you up on that! by the way, are you guys ok with the latest storm??

    WIllito–
    thanks man! your OOP story is looking great too. OOP2 will be so amazing!

    Marco–
    thanks man!
    unfortunately there won’t be Art of Horton. Fox doesn’t seem to care too much for Art of books. They just don’t sell. Art of Robots was an exception. That was not even from Fox publishing. And as you know we have no art of Ice Age, right? It is sad because we did some incredible art work on Horton. Well…. I’ll share with all of you once the movie comes out.

    This looks good man. Too bad about not publishing an Art of Horton book. Those kinds of books are a good inspiration for young artist trying to get into the business.
