This and That

When it rains it pours! For the last couple of weeks I’ve been juggling several client projects at various stages of completion. I’ve recently finished a marker comp, an illustration for a print ad, and some storyboards for a TV commercial pitch. I’m currently working on a toy design, packaging illustrations for three different clients, and character designs for two animation projects. If all goes well soon I’ll also be co-supervising my first short film! More on that later.

Needless to say I’m barely keeping up with my email much less this blog. But I haven’t forgotten you, my faithful readers. I’m hoping to write some new content soon. In the mean time, here’s a few quick links I hope you will find interesting:
