Also during the Sony days, Marcelo had a great idea, let's do a comic book together, one page at a time, one continues where the other one left the story! It was Marcelo, Armand and myself, we had lots of fun for quite a while with this pirates story called 'El Pacifico'.
Here are some character sketches I did for the story, plus the first panels of my contribution to it.

When at Sony we spent many many lunchbreaks with Marcelo and the sketchclub guys drawing people, ...some were passers by, some were in line to order lunch, some were already seated and storing enough energies to face the rest of the day properly. Here are a few that fell into this last category.
The second image is a little fragment of one of the pieces I have in 'Moonshine'.

So it is out there! Moonshine is the book that Dreamworks Animation has helped put together after a fantastic initiative by production designers Pierre Olivier Vincent and Cristophe Lautrette (Angela Lepito being the link with production) to gather the personal works of a bunch (47!) of us at the Studio's visual development department. The publisher is again Design Studio Press, and the presentation is, also again, up to the great standards of their art books. My admiration as well to everyone involved in the original concept and materialization of the project, it is a tremendous job to combine the efforts of so many people for a common purpose such as this, and to come up with such a brilliant final product!

Academy of Art University lecture (San Francisco)

It was great to be there last Friday 15th from 4:00 pm on (...we went all the way up to 8:00!).
A few weeks ago I got a nice invitation from teachers Daniel Cooney and Chuck Pyle to give a 'Framed Ink' lecture on composition for the pupils of the Center. I had heard of the Academy so many times but never actually been there, so I was certainly not going to miss on the opportunity. Great turnout on such a great theatre on a Friday night. Thank you guys again.

New book reviews

I very recently got two new reviews on "Framed Ink", from 'Parka' and Charley (Lines and colors). Thank you guys!

Also posting today, two new shots from our last visit to CA 92328 this last summer. We almost did melt...

The Box

And the box seems to be hers forever now... let's see.
The page with the faces started off as ..."I'll draw a face here". All of a sudden there were dozens of them. I did get carried away!
Great week ahead to everyone
