A short free sketch here. I was just playing around with the terrain and atmosphere, of course all self respecting future humans travel in the chic chrome sphere. No more minimal design than that. :)

My friends were finally able to drag me out for a little painting this past week and weekend and I had a great time. It was a small diverse group of artists from Sony, Dreamworks and the live action film industry. These were done at a park by the beach in Playa Vista. Good times!

Below are some Gouache sketches that were done around the same time as the digital. I was just sort of working on these separately and wasn't really worried about keeping the designs straight so they deviate a little. I don't think I'll do much more in this vein, but sometimes I just want to explore a couple more angles in the same theme.

Disney's Oz: The Great and Powerful has finally come and gone and it was truly a transformative experience for me. I spent nearly two years working on it from its early beginnings with the ever professional and kind Sam Raimi through to its late days in post. It was a film where I had the opportunity to work at almost every level on a film that an illustrator/concept artist could and really see how the sausage is made--in the best possible sense of the phrase. :) I can't say enough about the crew of the film and in particular would like to thank director Sam Raimi, Producer Grant Curtis, Production Designer Robert Stromberg and Art Director Stefan Dechant for giving me a chance to prove myself as an artist and the patience to stretch my skill into new directions.
Without belaboring how cool it was to work on I just wanted to finally put up some work. With this post I'm sort of starting at the beginning, but the rest will probably not be in perfect order. Thanks!
