Broken Promises

So quite a long time ago now, when I first met my husband, he asked if I would make a painting or two for their bachelor pad.  These are sketches I did in Photoshop while I was kicking around ideas.  Not having painted since I was in high school, I wasn't particularly keen to finish this "assignment".  Luckily, we were having too much fun dating for me to have time to follow through on that I never did paint him anything...Sorry, Hunnie!
I'll make it up one of these days!

More from MegaMind

These are storybook panels from a scene when I was working on "MasterMind", since renamed and released as "MegaMind".  These panels were combined with other artists' work to flesh out the first act and were used to sell the concept of the film.  Later these would be developed into a full sequence which would be sent off to editorial to be cut into the story reel.

These are two storybeats I drew up for an early version of MegaMind in 2008:

 And these are design explorations for the character of Roxanne circa 2007:

Welcome to my new page!

Hi all,
So I am finally back to blogging!  Thanks for stopping by :)

A good friend of mine, Aliki Theofilopoulos Grafft, invited me to attend an animation conference with her in Athens, Greece this March.  Thanks to her, I have been sorting through files and files of artwork that have been sitting around collecting the proverbial digital dust and I realized I really ought to be posting again.
Some of what I will post will be boring ol' animation stuff.  But mostly it will be the private projects I need to get out of my computer and off my drawing board and out into the Universe!

For starters, this first piece is from a children's book idea I have been toying around with about a world traveler named Zack who has a bit of a problem with his sense of direction:

These next two are actually preliminary designs for a website I plan to build where I can sell clothing, knick-knacks, and such starring the Astrology characters I've been doodling in notebooks and on napkins for the past 10 years.  I also have a 12 book children's series in mind!  So stay tuned for more of these guys showing up:

I've also been known to spend some down time doodling on the Cintiq, and pretty girls seem to show up more often than not....

Finally here are a few character explorations for a couple other guys who are asking me to tell their stories. Meet Pedro the Bull and Eep the Monkey:

So that's my first sampling.  I hope you stop by often as I am making a commitment to post on a weekly basis.  Thanks again!  And Happy Blogging!
