Busy and Updating

I have updated my website with a few sketches I have done recently in my sketchbook. Since returning from our road trip to TX I spent one week at home before going to be a guest artist at CSU Summer Arts with some great animator friends,
Andrew Gordon, Mike Wellins, Brian Boyd, and Chuck Harvey. Rick Vertolli from CSU Chico heads up the animation program. This year we concentrated on character development. One of the coolest parts about it is in the same room we had 2D and 3D animators doing the same assignments but in their chosen medium.

Students got to have 3 days of acting
classes which helped them develop their characters. They then did poses, walk cycles and scenarios which were animated in either Maya (3D) or Mirage (2D). They also got a nice tour of Pixar and were treated to some of Chuck Harvey's great collection of animation.

All together it was a great time and some incredible work came out of there. You can see some of their work at MyToons.
