The above is a rough layout of a Ratatouille book cover as I received it, prior to cleaning it up.

Toy Story pins for Zoetrope set

These were drawn as part of a pin set about the Pixar zoetrope (which is spinning at Disney's California Adventure), in collaboration with Brett Brooks, who did the original concepts for the set.

These were done as part of a Toy Story pin set. I tried to draw them as clean as possible before digitally inking them in Adobe Illustrator.

The Princess and the Frog

Today is the wide release of Disney's official return to traditional feature-length animation after more than five years: "The Princess and the Frog". I can't wait to see it tonight with friends and colleagues, and hope it does well this opening weekend. Needless to say, I'm very proud of this film, and grateful for the chance to work on it with Premise Entertainment in Orlando (one of the studios that helped in a big way with clean-up, effects, backgrounds, and ink and paint) - hopefully this will usher in many more traditionally-animated films. Please go see it and enjoy!

Candlelight Processinal pin

This is another pin for which I drew the characters just before the layoff back in March. I just saw it previewed on, which analyzes new and upcoming Disney pins on a frequent basis. I enjoyed this one, since the Candlelight Processional is such a beautiful event at both Disneyland in California and Epcot in Florida. The first time I saw it was at Disneyland, and James Earl Jones was the guest speaker narrating the Christmas story. If anyone hasn't seen it, it's something you really shouldn't pass up!
