SIGGRAPH 2006 Electronic Theater in Montreal

If you live in Montreal, you might want to check out the SIGGRAPH 2006 Electronic Theater screening on November 1st. From what I hear, this is a superb program really worth your while. The screening features several ground breaking shorts and clips, as well as my Insanely Twisted Shadow Puppets interstitials. This might be your only chance to see these on a big screen. We created a hi-rez master specifically for the Siggraph showing.

I was also delighted to see that Siggraph used one of my "Shadow Puppet" images to promote the screening. Cool!

XEKO - Mission Costa Rica Now Available

We received our shipment of the new XEKO trading card game (Mission: Costa Rica) for which I painted several illustrations. It looks really good. All the artists really came through with the illustrations, and Matter Group did a great job with the packaging. It's a nice complement to Mission Madagascar. You can order both, Madagascar and Costa Rica starter kits as well as the booster packs directly from us. Check out some of my XEKO art here.

Stumptown Comics Fest

I will be signing in Portland, Oregon at the Stumptown Comics Fest on Friday, Oct 27 from 4pm to 8pm and Saturday, Oct 28 from 10am to 6pm.

I was a guest at the event last year and I had a great time. One of the things Nancy an I really enjoy about the show is the fact that it focuses on independent comics and creators rather than mainstream. That's why we decided to go back again, this time as regular exhibitors. Besides, we love to visit Portland so any excuse to do that is a good one.

Guests this year include my pals Steve Rolston and Kazu Kibuishi, as well as many comics veterans and talented up-and-comers. Check out the guests and exhibitors list here.

Pushing FX Animation Design in a Computer Animation World

Since the beginning of September, I've been involved with the upcoming Opus: The Last Christmas movie which is scheduled to be released in 2008. Obviously, I can't post or discuss any of the work I'm doing on the film, but let's just say that I'm very excited about it. I've been dreaming about pushing the way FX animation is designed and animated on these animated CG films and this looks like it's going to be my chance to do just that.

As busy as I am with animation, I still manage to plug away on my own projects. This weekend, I finished two pages for ZED #8. Since I hate making posts without pictures, here's a small section of a panel from the page I finished today :)

Illustrations for XEKO

Last summer, I was commissioned by Matter Group to do 35 more illustrations for the trading card game XEKO. This week, I received an email from them saying it was OK to put my illustrations on line, so here they are:

These illustrations were quite challenging because of the intense schedule (I had to produce one painting a day from sketch to final) and the high level of realism.

I really had to push my photoshop skills to the max!! I certainly learned a tremendous amount about the software.

It was also fun doing research and finding out about the natural world of Costa-Rica.
