Kiss the Cook!

Today I designed a character for work/fun. All I was given to work with was a voice recording. In a nutshell, he's a Parisian chef who's not very good in the kitchen. Here's some sketches that I did this afternoon.

Global Warming is HOT

In case you've been snoozing, the hot topic these days is global warming. I'm working on a PSA for this year's Animation Block Party.

I have storyboarded the spot and started designing backgrounds and characters. I will be working with my good friend Evan Sussman (After Effects wiz) to create the final spot. Stay tuned as I post thoughout the process. Here's a background test...

I hope to use simple illustrations throughout the book to help spark the imaginations of children. My writing informs my art and my drawings inform my writing. They go hand in hand. Here is a doodle I created while I was brainstorming...
