Inspiration - The One and Only Paul Felix
What can I say about Paul, except that he is by far one of most amazing, talented, inspirational designers I know in the industry, bar none!!!!!!! He's currently the Art Director for Disney's upcoming "American Dog" and has provided visual development for "Tarzan", "Mulan", and was the Production Designer for "Lilo and Stitch".
He is a master at light and composition. Just look how he handles tone and light as it seeps in and throughout the frame. His drawings are just downright amazing and his paintings are just jaw-dropping beautiful!!!! And to top if off, Paul is one of the nicest, most humblest guys you ever want to know. I'm trying hard to convince him to start a blog, but for now we'll just have to settle for his work in the "Art of.." books. Every time I see his work I''m just blown away. He's been a BIG inspiration for me in how to tell a story through location and lighting.
Paul sets the bar high when it comes to overall design and production design. Damn you Paul,... damn you!!!!!! (and of course, I say that with lots of love!!).
