Drawing On-Location-reportage

This video covers one of the tricks I use to draw crowds or people on line while drawing on-location. Think about a group of people as one object or shape.  This can assist in defining perspective and direction.  You could also create story from this abstraction.

Instructing FORCE on MEGAMIND

So a little over a year ago, Jason Schleiffer, Head of Character Animation on Megamind emails me to inform me that he is a fan of the FORCE books and the next thing I know I am lecturing to the animators in Redwood City and Glendale!  I had an amazing time instructing at DreamWorks and want to thank Jason for collaborating and defining some innovative lectures.

Looking forward to experiencing the work of this amazing group of artists!
