One of my ship layouts for Piotr's class.

30 minute speedpaint on it.

By the way, watch Curious George if you get the chance. It's really heartwarming.

Oh ya, and I updated my demo reel (again). It now has more life drawing, more layout, more character design, and more animation, as well as music. Check it out in the demo reel post below, or to the right.


1 Long-eee

A 10 minute drawing of Fiona.

Two Quickies

2 One Minute drawings of Fiona.

Robert Kim

It's Robert Kim, with his little tablet, grinning like he does.

Another Layout

Just a quick (like, less than 20 minutes quick) monchromatic tonal paint on a layout from earlier on in the year.

The markering was probably better, but I don't really remember....

Anyways, hope you like it.

One Layout

Here's a layout I did earlier on in the year.

I've been wanting to post my layouts (because layout and life drawing (and possibly storyboarding) are my two favorite classes) but Piotr never handed them back.... so I speedpainted this one in Photoshop just to give it some tone. Hope you like it.

Maya! Sack!

Hey there,

Just taught myself how to model in Maya using Polygons. Thought you'd think it'd be neat.

P.S. Yes, I've done a NURBS one too, but this one is better, methinks.

Pierre-Luc Aubé

It's just Pierre.

More Bazo

Still working on the same sequence, but a new painting.

Hope you guys like the look.


Hey there,

There's now a 'trailer' for the new Ghibli film, "Tales from Earthsea" floating around the net. Unfortunately it's a RealPlayer file, but still worth checking out.

The film is directed by Goro Miyazaki, son of Hayao. If you didn't already know, Goro has a blog, and is translated into english on This Site. It's also linked at right.

Another thing to note is that Howl's Moving Castle will (finally) be released March 7. Also out that day is a 2-disc set for My Neighbour Totoro, as well as the previously unreleased Whispers of the Heart.

One more thing, I got a chance to see Sylvain Chomet's short film, "La Vieille Dame Et Les Pidgeons". I recommend seeing it if you can get the chance.

Me Feel So Stupid

After twiddling around with the settings of my blog in the wee hours of the morning, I realise that I accidently turned on comment moderation, and no comments were showing up.

What's even cooler is that it's been going on for at least a month.


I've tried to reply to all backlogged comments, so if you've commented in the last month, I've tried to address it. Sorry, and thanks all for stopping by!

Fallen Art takes Another

Congrats to makers of the short film Fallen Art for winning a BAFTA Award today.

I hope you guys will get a chance to see this short - really well done, in my opinion.

Also, if you can get the chance, go to the Ottawa International Animation Festival next year. Please. It's worth your while.

Bazo! Bazo! Bazo!

Two background paintings from the Third year group film Bazo. For more from the film check out Casper and Trev's blogs.

Two More

Here's two more life drawings from today. One five and a 10 minute.


A 5 and two tens, with one especially bad likeness. I like the second 10 though.


Some 2 minute gestures of Debby in Costume.

Hah-lee-ah. Mychaskiw.

She's hard to draw.

Life, In Color

Some color life drawings. Nude model, clothed the figure from reference.

Had some Fun.

Jasper Morello

I gotta plug this short. It's really, really, really awesome. Also, make sure to check out the official site for a trailer.

It was definetly the best thing I saw at Ottawa.

Sylvain Chomet!

There's some hullabaloo around the net about what Sylvain Chomet's up to.

First off (via Cartoon Brew)

A Commercial by Sylvain Chomet for an insurance company.

Also, via Atomic Bear Press is info about the Illusionist, the story about

An aging magician who befriends a girl in scotland and can't bear
to tell her that his magic is not real

Lastly, there's the Imdb Page for Sylvain Chomet saying that he's working on two more features, by the names of Barbacoa:

As Prussian troops lay siege to Paris, a veterinarian at the city's Jardins des Plantes zoo fights to protect Barbacoa the monkey and other animals being eyed by hungry children.

And The Tale of Despereux described as:

Together, three very unlikely heroes -- a literary mouse, an awkward servant girl, and a conflicted rat -- cross paths with a princess.

Toy Story 3

Toy Story 3 might be back in production at Pixar. What's even more notable about this post is the fact that Pixar may be making two films a year. Yowza.

One Man Band

There's a One Man Band clip here. Check it out.

Pan Painting

Just got tired of working on this one as well.

Hope you like it.

Also, I'll be working on some more backgrounds for Bazo, Casper's film - so I may or may not post something this weekend. Depends.

Fresh Faces

Here are some fresh faces that I did today. Lisa Tao in first year, and Danny Molek, Sheridan graduate. 'Twas good to see Danny up and kicking it - helping on his film was a definite blast.

Anyways, hope you like em.

Tuesday, February 07, 2006

Guess what?

A 2 minute and 5 minute life drawing.


Looks like I'm going to be doing some background painting for the group film Bazo, that Trev and Casper are going to be working on.

This is just a quick test with flats. Hope you like it.

More faces.

Kosta and Trish.
