LOBO Love

Some times you just gotta get a little LOBO.
Breaking out a quick sketch on a lunch break (and maybe then some).

Turbo F.A.S.T. Preview Clip

Howdy Yall,
Long time no blog!
Working on Turbo F.A.S.T. has kept me pretty busy for the past few months.
Today I had the chance to see some animation from a really cool episode I boarded for the tremendously talented director Juno Lee.
The animation turned out incredibly well due to the amazing talented animators at Titmouse Animation and the entire animation production team.

I'll try to get a vid of this soon. But for now zip over to the Entertainment news link and enjoy! :)

Update:
DreamWorks posted the clip for your YouTube viewing pleasure. Thanks DW!

JLA Saves the Day Animation

I saw this a few months ago in my local Target and I haven't forgotten how well done this animated commercial was using very line mileage heavy characters in a realistic style.

The commercial was boarded by industry veteran artists, including talented veteran comic book artist, Norm Bryfogle:

The animation was created by Golden Wolf Animation studios, based in London, UK.

It's rare these days to see commercial animation of this quality. So when you come across it, savor it. :)

Z List

So a buddy at my current studio and I have started playing a little game to challenge each other artistically, keep us sharp, and have some fun between drawing snails for animation. The premise of the game is to randomly pick from a huge database of comic book characters a character that begins with the letter of the week and draw a quick sketch of said character. This past week was the letter E.
Below is my submission. Can you guess the name of the character?

Sidebar: The post title comes from the nickname that another co-worker has given this little contest of ours for it's propensity to pick the most obscure comic book characters that no one remembers or has heard of.

Little Stubby Pencil Sketch

On the eve of the anniversary of the last time I posted on my blog, last month on the 20th, I thought I'd mark this occasion to post a quick sketch I was able to dash off during storyboard production.
Color added much much later after my board was finished ;).
Until next month;)

Morning Sketchy

Each morning I commute into Hollywood to work on the Turbo tv series and I see some pretty interestingly sketchy characters. This week I saw a character devoted to his craft and I had to devote myself to my craft and sketch him out as soon as I got to my desk.


I tried to remember as much as possible by taking a mental "snapshot" and then go over all the details, describing the scene to myself repeatedly, until I could commit the memory photo to paper. In this case, digital canvas.
