A cute shot from the opening

This is going to be changed, I'm sure. (Ahhhh, the magic of working with so many Network executives). But for about 10 minutes, it was designated as the final shot from our opening for Tigger and Pooh. I liked it so much, I thought I'd show it off.

Did I mention I work on Tigger and Pooh?

He's much larger in life than I would have expected from watching the movies.

Bedtime for Bouncer: a tigger tale

My latest board for Tigger and Pooh is titled "Bedtime for Bouncer". The premise is that Tigger is unwiling to sleep, as it takes up precious bouncing time. As a result of his all night bouncing bender, Tigger spends the entire episode in a sleep deprived state of drunkeness (my skewed approach to the story). Retitle this episode "Drunken Tigger". I'll post boards of some of Tigger's acting here later in the week. Really funny character stuff. I can't wait to see how the board plays out on this one. Pretty random stuff going on here (one of these days my boards are going to get so crazy, people will have a hard time figuring out which scripts they are supposed to illustrate! haha. As long as they're funny!)

(oh, and see previous posts for an explanation on the twisted cover page)

Lumpy Spends the Night

I'm posting some examples of the work I'm doing on Tigger & Pooh. Hope Disney doesn't mind too much...consider it free advertising! Ok - so the cover pages aren't part of the story, but they have become a tradition around our crowd. Something to entertain everyone who has to look over these things with a meticulous eye. But below are a few pages from the opening of the show:

Finally, a bit of boarding from a sequence that didn't make the cut (due to time). Too bad, as I thought I really hitthe nail on the head with this one. Lumpy is spending the night at Roos, and is homesick. He misses his mom. We push in thru Roo's window onto Lumpy, in his sleeping bag on the floor next to Roo's bed. The room is lit by a single candle behind him. It flickers gently. Lumpy looks up at the ceiling, thinking of his mother, and sees a familiar shadow (his shadow) which reminds him of his mother. He reaches his trunk up to the ceiling, which causes his shadow to reach out as well...out toward him. He tries to touch "his mother's" trunk, but can't reach. He lays back down, lonely and sad, the shadow receeds as well:

Quick Work for adverts.

with ad work, there's no time like the present. which usually means an all nighter in order to accomodate. behold the offerings of last nights artfest. i decided to show these two (out of 20) because i thought it appropriate to see what kind of fashion decisions one makes at 5am. a men's sweater, over a t-shirt, with a silk bandana that a fro?!? and she's caucasion. boy is this woman a hipster. "look out! here she comes! she's a disco queen." what medication IS she on? the art looks good though!
