Class of the Titans





I've posted this before, but I'm always happy to post again the artwork for Class of the Titans, produced by Studio B Productions in Vancouver, CANADA and directed by my good friend Brad Goodchild. Brad's a great director and designer and is the brave chap who gave me my first break in the business when he gave me a chance to board for PepperAnn way back in 1998 (yep, it's all Brad's fault!!).

Anyway, check out the great work he and the talented folks are doing for the show. Also check out Jeremy Tin's blog. He's the character designer for the show and his designs are amazing! Beautiful work Brad, and I hope we get to work again!!!!!

Inspiration: Mike Mattesi







One of the great things I've experience lately is meeting and working with Mike Mattesi. He's the founder of the Entertainment Art Academy and the author and artist of Force and Reportage (available through the school). He's a great designer as well as a great teacher. Rock on Mike!!!

The Wickedly Talented Kristen Lester


I just finished a year gig at Starz Animation and one of the best things I experienced was working with top, talented people. One of them being Kristen Lester. She is one of the best designers and coolest people in the industry and she's wicked at drawing caricatures. I'm sure in 5 years she'll be one of the hottest young art directors in town!! Check out her blog.
