BrainsBrainsBrains



BrainsBrainsBrains



They say a painting is never finished, merely abandoned. I'm about to abandon this series I've been doodling on for little over a year in favor of a new direction I'm taking. Before I move wholly into this new direction, here's a cleaning out of the proverbial closet. I call this series BrainsBrainsBrains, because they expose some deep structures in my gray matter, and in honor of the zombie-like catatonic state I would enter for hours when laboring over them.
Here's the whole dang Picasa album.

Word: Up

Did some freelance this spring at a place called Fusion Creative. We were bidding for the international print ads for the Up DVD release. Didn't win the bid, but they had some nice things to say about our mock-ups. Here's a sampling of the rough sketches I did for them. I did all of these over the course of a weekend. Had we won the bid, we would have picked a few of these to develop into full-color mock-ups, and eventually finished print ads.
As it is, I thought some of the roughs, rudimentary as they are, capture some of the spirit of the film.
