ParaNorman

In early 2010 Laika asked me to do some test environments for ParaNorman.  This is what I painted . Unfortunately I didn't get the job.     IT's too bad because after seeing the movie i thought my paintings would have fit in pretty well.      

I'm assuming it's safe to post these Since the Bluray is out.   Great Movie by the way. I highly recommend it.

Cover Art

I painted a wraparound cover for Harpercollins last year for a book titled " A dog Called Homeless".
Book is available Sept 4th 2012.

I dont Update very often.... I've just been really busy over the last year on a few different projects and I look forward to being able to share some of it in the future ( when they are released ).   IN the mean time, I've uploaded set designs/ colour keys / pitch frames from some Uncle Ben's commercials that I've worked on in 2010 and earlier 2011 for Hornet Inc.      Click below Image or HERE to go to the uncle bens commercial section to see more

Warm up

I've been really bad at posting up personnal work, Mostly because I'm busy with freelance or I'm out and About exploring/ enjoying my new surrounding.   These days , I'm dividing my work time between a Tv pilot creating early preproduction designs, a Book cover for a tween novel and random commercial pitches.

Anyways, Here's a warmup painting I did the other morning before starting the work day.  Just quickly playing around with basic shapes ( circles , squares and triangles) with texture.

 

Small Site update

I updated/reorganized my site a little.   Have a look around.  I added some work from Horton Hears a Who in the Feature film section that I dont think I've posted before. And a couple of images under the commercial section.   I'll be uploading more as I find things that should be safe to post
