Some work from Pixar's Cars 2

Hope everyone is having a good holiday season!  I know I'm enjoying the abundant chocolates and delicious eggnog :)

In 2009, I was an intern at Pixar and had the opportunity to work on Cars 2.  The team was fantastic and I learned a great deal from so many artists.  Here are a couple concept paintings of the Tokyo bathroom scene.

Have a great week!

Happy Holidays!

This year, we are babysitting our friend's labrador retriever over the holidays.  I made this for the cover of a greetings card, however, my wife didn't like it so I'm posting it here!  I thought it was funny.

May you have a wonderful holiday and happy new year!

CTN Wrap-Up...Thank you:)

CTN was an absolute blast!  It was fantastic to see everyone and meet new talent.  In fact, the up and coming talent is quite incredible.  In looking through portfolios, I had a "ponder moment" about  the incredible industry in which we are all a part and the creative minds from all over the world.  Each artist creates their own vision (built up through background, experience, and hard work) to eventually collaborate with other artists' visions to make a film, game or product.  What a great time to be an artist!  There is so much going on!
I wanted to say thank you to everyone who came by during the expo.  It was the highlight of my trip to meet you and finally put a face with that blogger icon!
