Pitch art

Here is an image from an idea for yet another pitch. Tha idea was to have some slick bgs contrasting with some Stick figure like characters. Maybe it works, maybe it doesn't. Either way it was a fun experiment. John Stewart did the layout and Don Gauthier did the painting. Yours truly designed the stick woman.

At long last....Jeremy

Ahhhh.... At long last I have finally gotten my hands on a copy of Jeremy.

One of my first posts on this blog was in regards to this childhood stop motion series which we used to watch on TVO in both french and english. It was a show that I remembered with great fondness. I finally got my hands on the first 8 episodes of the series on dvd through a seller on eBay.
I was worried that I would be disappointed with the quality, having remembered it being much better than it actually was, but I was not disappointed in the least. Sure it's quite jittery in places but overall it tells a great little story with some great art direction and great little models.

If you were a fan of this rare show I strongly recommend the $5-$10 it cost on eBay and pick up a copy.

Here is the best link I've found in regards to this great little character.

Older and wiser?

Now that I've been in the biz for a while,(13yrs), I feel I'm just begining to learn.
And one of the many things I'm trying to improve on is composition.
Hans Bacher is as good as they get in this respect and he has started his own blog which not only showcases his wonderful work but also offers some great tricks of the trade.
I strongly recommend bookmarking this site.

Busy Busy Busy

Sorry for not posting for a while but things have gotten insanely busy. But for now here's an old sketch which I may have posted a while back but figure it to be a good place holder.

My gosh

Oh my Gosh, Check out Stephanie Choi's new blog. What fun. How inspiring. Over on Cartoon Brew they say that the summer of 2005 will go down as the Summer of the Blog.
So many great artists getting their work out there with relative ease. And if I could I'd thank every last one of them. Keep the inspiration alive.

Stephani Choi is a character designer on Fosters Home for Imaginary Friends.
