Gagne is just one of the comic creators/animators
who got to be a part of
the new Pixar feature film, Ratatouille. He told
us what it was like getting the call from Pixar to
work on the project, how it was different from Iron
Giant and what's coming up in his comic book toils." (Click

and I are packing our suitcases and heading off
to Singapore where I will be lecturing on the art
of FX animation at the CG
Overdrive symposium. If you happen
to be in that part of the world, you should definitely
check it out.
post some pictures when I get back.
June 6th, 2007
and I just got back from San Francisco where we
attended the Ratatouille screening and wrap party
at the Nob Hill Masonic Center. The film was incredible.
We loved it. This is my favorite Pixar movie. The
storytelling, the art direction, the animation
- everything worked in perfect harmony. Brad Bird
is a genius filmmaker, that's all there is to it!
was great fun seeing my talented animation pals
Brad, Andy, Steve, Mark, Pete, Lou, Rich, Adam
as well as making new friends. Sometimes, tucked
in my little cave, I miss the creative environment
a studio can provide. By the way, Steve Pilcher,
if you're reading this, send
me your email ;)
am so happy I was able to make a small contribution
to the movie. My duty was to create the abstract
taste visualization for Remy and Emile. It was
a pleasure to work with Brad again and I love the
fact that I was able to create the animation from
conception to final color, right here in my home
studio in Washington!
Ratatouille opens in theater, go see it!
