old western

I am being lame and posting an old pic from last year because this blog is woefully neglected. The last month or so I've been working on a promo for my own show, which turned out great. I'm really happy with it however I'll never be able to post it online (boooo). Anyway, directing was a little stressful and I don't know how people do it if it's not on something they love (at least a little). Many many thanks to Jayson Thiessen for the guidance and wallowing in tiny-room nausea right alongside me for the whole thing. Here's a little promo image I had initially made for it; the characters look kind of different now:
We managed to retain that textured background look which is great, plus there's an abundant use of multi-plane camera to make the whole thing a little cooler.

Anyway, in other news I'll be starting as a story intern at Disney next month!! I'm SUPER excited about that and grateful too, since they got me hooked on this stuff in the first place. I'm also going to go and stalk all my idols.... muhahahhahaa. Ok, hopefully some new drawings soon, but I've been mostly packing and recovering from damage that month-long run of no sleep and bad take-out food did! Or maybe I'm just narcoleptic. Yeah that's probably it.

Ok! Can't wait to see all the Cali folks again! =D (It's just starting becoming bloody cold here too).

I tried to comment yesterday, but it didn't go through. Weird.

Anyway, HUGE congrats, Clio! That's the job I'd LOVE to have if it didn't involve... well.. living in Los Angeles ;)

But YAY, someone else to visit when I'm in town. :)

Coincidentally, during lunch today we were discussing some bloggers we frequently visit. I said, "When Clio finally emerges on her blog again, she'll probably announce that she's become a story artist for Pixar or Disney or something." I did some lunchtime blog browsing and there it was. Keep us informed from the inside of Disney...and welcome back to LA!

*yay for update*

Wow, you finally made it to Disney. That's awesome. :)

You should get out of town before the snow comes, I have a feeling we're going to get a pretty nasty winter this year...

Congrats on the Disney gig! That's exciting!

Also, I'm loving the textured background. That will look really cool in an animation.
