Had a bit of time for a Friday Sketch, so we all drew the lovely ladies on this post about women pilots. (I wonder if Miyazaki was a fan of these old aviation outfits, some of them remind me of Nausicaa.)

A recent sketch as part of my ongoing effort to get the WHOLE department to watch Downton Abbey.

Oh, but I added a dragon, of course.

French Ducks Book Trailer

French Ducks in Venice Book Trailer

As a side project at the studio, I had a great team helping me create a book trailer for French Ducks in Venice, the childrens book I illustrated. We took my original illustrations and cut them up in the PSDs, then our motion artists projected the scenes in Cinema 4D to achieve some nice parallax and lighting.

Thank you to everyone involved, I could not be more thrilled with our final product.

Gatorade "The Zone"

*The editor's cut of a national campaign. Peter Tarter had some footage that he wanted to play around with. So he found some great audio and went to work. I saw what he had cut and wanted to take a crack at color-grading it and also adding on an endtag for good measure.

I know GATORADE, the black on black doesn't follow your branding guidelines but hey, it looks cool.

Pretty colors that failed to be picked. Maybe next time, wavy colors.
