Process

I saved 30 versions of this piece until I had the final. Here are a few of them.

This is the sketch I started with. I was hoping they would choose the middle one, but they didn't.

See the final on the my previous post.

Epic Mickey


This is one of the last pieces I did when I was at Disney. It was for the game Epic Mickey. I've never played the game and I have no idea if it made it in. Anyone else played it? Is it any good?

Mt. Batwing

This morning I was going through some early art for Hero's and laughed at some of my attempts. It's amazing what a process art can be.

For instance...

I was supposed to draw the witch's fortress. I sat down to work on it around 11 pm. By 4 am when I went to bed I thought I had come up with something cool. I still think it's cool, it was just reeeally off the mark from what the publishers were looking for.


I learned a lot in working on this book. One of the most important is to read the instructions! Sometimes I get an image in my head and just jump in without making sure I'm doing the piece correctly. The following image is what was used in the book.


One of the dangers of having a wild imagination is that you might need to hire someone to help you reign it in...

Woohoo!! It's out today!

Buy 10 copies today! And 10 tomorrow! (I don't get royalties, but I still think you should give one to everyone you know)   Christopher Healy wrote a great story and I am stoked I got to be part of it.  It was a super fun project and now while you start reading book one, I'll keep working on book two.
