Pencil test - Curious George

video

Here is a pencil test for a scene I animated in the 2005 film "Curious George" (Universal), while working at Project Firefly in Orlando.

Matterhorn monster

Just for fun - here's the yeti in Disneyland's Matterhorn, also known to cast members as Harold. That attraction has always been one of my all-time favorites at Disneyland, if not my absolute favorite thrill ride. I really miss how the Skyway buckets would glide right through the mountain (once I actually reached up and touched the bottom of one as it passed over my ascending bobsled!). I was such a geek, I had actually painted a Matterhorn jacket, made three flipbooks about it, and made my second animated student film at CalArts about Harold getting laid off, finding work in the park's other attractions. Life imitates art, in certain respects....

Captain Hook as Jack Sparrow

This is a pin I worked on a few years ago for freelance, prior to being hired at Disney Design Group. I created the final pencil art, based on a rough concept by Garret Webb.
