For all the locals... we have a book signing event this weekend (April 6th) at Gallery Nucleus with the art team of The Croods! There will be a panel where we discuss our process and inspirations, Q & A, and some book signing time! Here is the link to the event for more info!
The "BearOwl" was one of the first characters I designed the colors and patterns for. I'm very happy to see the amount of screen time he (or she) ended up getting in the final movie. Character designed by the amazing Takao Noguchi.
One of many shots that we were certain was going to make the final cut... but ran out of time (or money). Although I really REALLY love how that environment ended up looking in the movie.
A collaboration painting between myself and Leighton Hickman.
Another family moment. Painted this from Ryan O'Loughlin's storyboard. Such a talented and sweet guy. He is now co-directing one of our upcoming animated films. Congratulations, Ryan! Well deserved!
