Ralph poster

Posing this international poster was my very last assignment on Ralph!

Wednesday, June 13, 2012


So we've got less than two months in animation on Ralph!  Since the trailer came out I've been reading a lot of good press on the film.  Which is a relief.  Working on this film everyday, you know you have something great, but are so close to it, and still feel vulnerable when it goes out into the public. "I hope they like it, I hope they like it.  "  Then it comes out, bam, and it's a rush to see that people seemed stoked about it!   These kinds of things help and motivate you to push through the long hours and continue your dash to the finish line.
Coupled with that, I've had the amazing opportunity to do a lot drawing for the film and it has been a blast!  Everything is happening so fast, it feels surreal.  I'm sure it won't sink in until later =).

Wish us luck!  Talk soon!

Great shapes

Carter Goodrich's work for Brave.
I admire Carter's ability to keep his simple shapes even after he's added the details. So bold and graphic, but still solid.  Look at how he's also playing with proportion, none of it is standard, it's all so fresh.

This American Life

Poster art by Claire Keane

A few Disney artists will be involved in illustrating and animating some of the short stories involved in this show! Yesterday some of us animators came in for an all-day Anim Jam, and made our contribution.  Hopefully it screens somewhere close to where you are!
