M'aidez (long)

I am back working on M'aidez again after a bit of a break. I am launching back into the project to try to complete the entire original story I had planned for the short. This will fill in what happened before the first version, and what happens to our doomed hero next. I have been making my first real set for the last couple of months between all my other responsibilities. It has been a lot of planning and measuring. Also lots of cutting... lots and lots of cutting. Here's a look at what I've been up to. The next step is figuring out exactly what the floor and ceiling of my spaceship hallway will look like, then painting everything. Then lights!

Alex Fine visit

My friend Alex Fine was kind enough to visit my class at MICA last week to do an inking demo. He did an awesome drawing of the worst thing ever. He was also voted Baltimore's favorite illustrator by City Paper this week, congrats Alex!

Arrowhead: Signal

I came across this short film from Australia recently and really enjoyed it. Jesse O'Brien and crew created it on a shoestring budget and they are seeking financing to create a full length feature. The film cleverly mixes selective cg elements in with a great costume and carefully cobbled together set pieces.  It's about ten minutes, but worth the time investment.
