Look At This! Look At That!

Hey all, I'm super excited to announce that I'll be participating in a very cool show in honor of the whimsical, rhythmical literary giant, Dr. Seuss! The opening is being held this Saturday by the fine folks over at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, CA.

It was a lot of fun diving into Seuss' visually rich worlds again. The first feature film I worked on was Horton Hears a Who back in 2005 (wow, a long time ago)... and it was cool to see what I could come up with nowadays. I dusted the paints off and went at it. After a failed attempt in gouache I resorted to acrylics =]

'faithful, one hundred percent' - 12x18 - acrylic

a close up...kept it simple (lines to a minimum) and focused on shapes

framed and ready to go
