The Legend of Zelda: The Movie!

Been a while, hasn't it?  Whoof.

I'm keeping busy with storyboard projects -- especially a big fat animatic starring two of my marquee jerks characters.  I hope you'll see that soon!  In the meantime, looka this brain fart that happened one sleepless night.

Isn't he heroic?

Attack of the 50-Foot Hero

Worked on this film with 13 other awesome artists for three crazy months.  It's finally public.  Check it out!

Attack of the 50-Foot Hero: Story Audition

Last summer, I participated in Laguna College of Art & Design's first master class, in which 15 artists took a film from concept to color in 12 weeks.  We didn't have the design of the monster pinned down in the second week, but we were (understandably) more concerned with getting the story to work right out of the gate.  All 15 of us boarded a ton of radically different stories from the same premise -- "lil' monster wants to save a city, not destroy it" -- and, soon afterwards, Frankensteined the final story from the bits we liked in everyone's pitches.

The final, team-penned story was much cleverer than my individual pitch (that's usually how stories go), and Sierra Lewis' and Trent Correy's work on the monster's design was head and shoulders above my version.  Still, the boards I did were an enjoyable adventure.  I thought I'd share them now that the lid has been off the film for some time.

Happy Birthday, Milt Kahl!

I'd hardly know it without Andreas Deja's exhaustive blog, but still.  Here's an affectionate poke at one of the greatest animators who ever lived.
