We had a super sweet guest come to the studio today. Her name is Sadie and she’s an aspiring story artist.

Being 13, it must have been really intimidating having the attention of so many artists. I know when I was young, visiting an animation studio would have been a dream come true. Alas if it would have occurred, I would have been so shy that I could not have spoken to anyone.

I can’t wait to see the stories Sadie will do =D. Everyone at work made a drawing for Sadie. These ones are mine :)

Self Portrait

It was raining all day yesterday, a perfect day for drawing! Tried to push my drawing style a bit this weekend. I used Kyle T Websters Mega Brush set for the drawing and the painting. The brush that gave most of the texture in the painting was called “Gouache Bonus Gritty Dry”.

Also a big thanks to Katherine for teaching me about clipping masks!

I’m unable to make it to a friends wedding this summer, so I did a painting for him and his fiancée :)

Making new friends

While in a line-up at TCAF this weekend I got to meet a father and son that were waiting to have a book signed by Svetlana Chmakova. I felt so lucky to be in line next to them. They were so genuine and nice and we soon got into conversations about books and movies.

When I mentioned that I had the pleasure of working on “The Little Prince”, they told me how much they loved it. The son’s face especially light up so much and I can’t truly describe the joy at seeing something that I was a part of touch someone so genuinely. Meeting them was something really special that has had me smiling for days. As a thank you, I sent them this drawing.

I wasn’t really happy with the last drawing that I posted, so I thought I’d take another crack at it and push the design a bit further. This is a really ruff pass and the pose is a bit static, but I already like the feel of it so much more.

Drawing from Books

I’ve been wanting to draw characters from a book for a while, but haven’t had the time until last weekend. I was listening to the Twilight series and  was struck by how well the secondary characters were described . Especially fascinating was that each character died in a different time period which could influence their design subtly. The experience was so much fun that it makes me want to do “The Name of the Wind” next, or maybe “The Power of One”. Let’s see where my fancy will take me the next time  :)
