More Swamp Maffia





Hi all!
Here are 2 more paintings done for my project, trying to further develop the look and feel of my toad-filled world. First painting zooms in on one of the many food stands that can be found throughout the city (which I for now dubbed 'Undertow City'), while the 2nd painting shows their main means of transportation across water.

Also still doing my daily spit paints, will post another batch here soon!

Back to work,

Italian Book Covers



Hi guys,
Last year I did a series of children's book covers for Italian publisher Atlantyca Dreamfarm, which finally hit Italian bookstores last month. I did a couple more, but above 2 are my favourites. It's a line of scary books for children', so don't read them right before going to bed. :)

Swamp Maffia



Finally, some new work on this blog! Above some visuals for a story idea I've been developing which I dubbed 'Swamp Maffia', revolving around a dark and gritty noir world inhabited by maffia toads. Mostly for fun and portfolio purposes at the moment, although I'd love to develop things further and make it an animation short. :)

Back to work,

Some of pages from the article about my work

Hi all!

The book features the sketchbooks of just so many great artists, and it's an honor to be published besides them in this wonderful 320 - page book.

It's available at various webshops, here's a link to Amazon:

Currently working hard on new personal work, you can already catch a glimpse in my

CTN 2013


Hi all!
A bit later then planned, but I thought I'd do a quick post on how much I enjoyed CTN again this year!  It was our 2nd year coming out to LA to this wonderful animation convention, and once again we couldn't have had a better time!

We were able to meet up with alot of friends we made last year, and also made many new ones.  Thank you all who stopped by our booth, and picked up some of our free cards and drawings!

As a picture can speak a thousand words, above a collage of the event. Check out more CTN photos on my facebook, thanks!

Giant!!

Giant!

I thought I'd finally post this one. I started it many months ago, but never got around finishing it until today. I wanted to create a single image that would capture my entire 'Giant' project in one shot, and show how much potential the story would have for the big screen. Defenitely hope to one day flesh out this project in either a book or animation;  for now enjoy the image and keep your fingers crossed it'll one day become that big project :)

Rough sketches - Main Characters

Storybeat Color

Style Exploration

Hi guys!
These last 2 months I haven't exactly been updating my blog alot, above the reason why! The images above were done as part of the online CGMA masterclass 'Environment sketching for production', as instructed by the wonderful Armand Serrano. This class basically took me and my fellow classmates through a fictive animation production, including coming up with your own script, creating mood & styleboards,  rough sketching, storybeats, switching styles (so much fun!), and much much more.

My story synopsis:

When the Mars Rover finally returns to earth, he brings with him a botanic plague that may cause the end of the world.

During a live television broadcast on CNN, NASA proudly shows samples of Marsian rock. The broadcast goes haywire when one of the presenters accidentally knocks over a glass of water, which is quickly absorbed by the  alien rock, causing it to explosively grow botanic tentacles. 

In a matter of minutes the whole TV studio is overgrown with weird looking veins & plants, which is only the start of a turn of events that may lead to the end the world as we know it.

Yep, and that's why I never became a writer :)
Anyway, I had alot of fun, learned alot, and met some great people. I want to thank Armand for his amazing class, I could not have wished for a better instructor.

More stuff coming up!

Kickstarter Campaign Children's book!




Hi all!


One of my favourite projects I"ve been working on lately is above children'sbook, a project I'm doing with Adam Sidwell, a well known children's book writer & visual FX guru (Pacific Rim, King Kong, Pirates of the Carribean).

The book is called 'Fetch', and is about where dogs REALLY come from, fully illustrated by yours truly of course! :D

However, as it costs quite a bit of money to get the book printed, we started a kickstarter campaign! Click the above video for more info, and then please visit this link:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/adamsidwell/fetch-an-illustrated-book

Help us get together the funds needed to get this book on the shelves, you're already getting a free copy when funding us for a mere 19 dollars, so what are you waiting for! Go go go!

THANK YOU!

Can you imagine a book filled entirely with these type op drawings? It's going to be AWESOME!:D
