1. Swapped media today with Emily Tetri so I could try plain air with guoache. It was fun and made me think differently. Would definitely like to try it again!

    The official, 100% real Korra Book 3 trailer is here! New Book 3 music by Jeremy Zuckerman. Edited by Jeff Adams. Motion graphics by Matt Gadbois. Enjoy!

    I didn’t work on this season, but most of my awesome coworkers did! Check it out!

    We had a fun, impromptu lunch with *most* of the remaining Korra design team yesterday. After a long haul, we are in the home stretch with preproduction (design/color) on the Book 4 finale episodes. I’m going to miss these incredibly talented, friendly, and funny folks when we finish in a few short weeks. Left to right: Steve Hirt (clean up/add. prop & char. design), Christie Tseng (char. design), Melissa King (BG paint), William Nanqing Niu (BG design), Emily Tetri (BG paint), Christine Bian (BG design), Jojo Aguilar (prop & add. BG design), Mike, Lauren Zurcher (BG paint), and me.

    So, I’ve been a part of this for the past couple months! It’s been so fun and now I’m sad it’s already almost over. 

  4. Out painting the streets with Leanne today!

  5. Got in some pastel time today, finally!

  7. Some more of my Disney Hidden Worlds work! This is the Brave Island. Props to my awesome co-worker Brittnie for doing the layout for me on this one :)  The last image is the initial color rough I did to get brand approval. 

  8. I recently did this piece for an upcoming game called Armello, and today they are launching their kickstarter! If you are into tabletop games, and want to play one in a absolutely beautiful digital form, please back this!


  9. For a change, here’s some work I do during my day job! I work at Disney Interactive and am currently on a Hidden Objects game called Disney Hidden Worlds. My primary job is to take each disney movie we do, and make a floating island out of it that has all the elements of the film. It is quite a challenge! But, also very fun to study all the different disney/pixar films and recreate them in a different way. We have a team of artists that works on these, but here are the first 3 islands that I worked on. 

    I made note at the bottom of who did what, but for all of these, the layout was done by a different artist. Also, for the Little Mermaid island, I only took it to the color rough state, and another artist finished it off. So, that’s why the one I’m posting is unfinished.

    Also, I have to note that in the game, these islands are animated by our incredible animators! Characters walk around, water ripples, trees bounce and drop leaves when you click on them, etc.! It’s really wonderful, and if you have any interest in hidden objects games, you can check it out here! http://www.disneyhiddenworlds.com/

    More to come! I have many more islands I have created, and will post them as they become public content in the game!

  10. I painted this Majora’s mask for a kickstarter that’s going to be happening soon! It’s inspired by the moon and clock tower imagery from the game. I’ll post more info about the kickstarter when it happens!
