Ready to go

Today, I am doing all the preliminary work for the production of the graphic novel that has been hanging over my head for the last 6 months.  It has not been procrastination that overtook the process, it was life itself.  Bought a house, renovated a house, fixed up a studio, and unpacked and organized my life that has been in boxes for the last 3 years.  That and the added bonus of teaching new classes at CCAD and getting my feet underneath me there.

But back to today, getting the production blog up and running again.  Blogging here and yes, actually sitting at an animation desk and doing some drawing.  More, more, more, go go go.

Setting up a new studio

Thankfully, my dahling wife and I are moving out of the land of apartments and into a new house with a "bonus" room which will be an idea place to finally set-up a studio.  A real, working studio where I can do everything, paint, draw, you name it.  I am very much looking forward to getting this little slice of my heaven setup and working like a family of mice in a cheese factory.  YUMMMMMM.  Cheesy Studio.

The Double-est of Domes.

As I continue to gain speed on the graphic novel for Longhair and Doubledome, I thought it would be fun to share some of the more recent drawings of Doubledome, that crazy Cro-Magnon.  I have always been proud of the unusual design of both Longhair and Doubledome and I especially enjoy pushing the envelope of design....Here are some fun examples.

Interview in Traditional Animation

Reposting this from last week, Lavalle Lee has been incredibly supportive and I have rarely met someone so dedicated to the rejuvenation of a cherished art form, Traditional Animation. Lavalle Lee has been extremely generous in assisting this artist in his quest to continue to animate using the "analog" tools I used through most of my career. I am currently trying to drop digital work for hand drawn pencil pushing and I just would like to take the time to thank Lavalle for all his help in this endeavor. He is a rare person and deserves praise.

Getting going on the Kickstarter

It may be early in the process but I am getting antsy to get this party started.  Will be writing the script or at least a portion of it this weekend.   Hope to have a working script by next weekend and then I will be concentrating on getting the Kickstarter written and set up for rewards and all.
