Something New Rises To The Surface...

I'm happy to announce I will debuting my new book, Denizens of the Deep @ The CTN Animation Expo. November 16-18.  It could not be a better event to be a part of let alone get a chance to share something new to fans and friends.

The book is a "turn of the century journal of sketches and notations told through the eyes of a British explorer embarking on a voyage that would change everything we've ever known about Denizens of the Deep!  From mermaids to dark things from the depths... the ocean is full of many unimagined creatures previously uncaught by human eyes, until now!"

• I'll be at Table T26 right next to my buddies in crime, Brett Bean and Justin Rodriguez of Think Tank fame!

All my best,

Gesture Drawing - Focusing On Character (HallowsStyle!)

These were a series of sketches I did this week in honor of Halloween coming to town shortly in the States.  The discussion was about focusing on the primary source of importance first.  That being, the posture and weight distribution of the character/person. However, from there on it's important to make it your own. With the power of someone's imagination, ANYTHING is possible if you simply..........

Make Believe!

(The last sketch is for Michael...)

Disney Lecture Series Continued - Griffith Observatory

This is the first page of a packet I have prepared for an upcoming lecture and drawing session I'll be leading for the folks at Disney TVA and DTS.  Should be a pretty fun day amongst a legendary L.A. icon.
