Here is a gem from the past. Disney Animator and Genius Ward Kimball directed this exploration of what Mars could be. The curiosity rover has yet to find anything like these imaginative creatures, but I love the pure weirdness of the ideas. Pure inspiration! It's hard to imagine any major studio funding something like this today.

I can finally announce what I have worked on since the beginning of the year. Seven of my co-workers and I have a book called Punch Drunk Moustache: Visual Development for Animation and Beyond coming out next year through DSP. Each artist has a section to showcase work they have that is not related to their day-job. There are a ton of cool images and stories. I'm really excited about the project, and can't wait for everyone to see it. For now it's available for pre-order on Amazon. I don't know when they will show sample images from the interior, but it's a really diverse crew with a different look and approach to every person's section of the book.
Here is the description from the amazon site:
Punch Drunk Moustache is the off-the-clock work of eight animation industry artists with the insatiable need to tell stories. Each artist showcases new ideas infused with unique personal style. Get ready for stunning visual development and never before seen concepts. Giants, androids, strange beasts, brave animals, magic, mystery, and everyday folks collide in these vividly imagined tales. With Punch Drunk Moustache, the gloves are off!

So there hasn't been much activity on the blog this year. I'm cranking away at a project that I'm really excited about, but it doesn't leave much time for posting. Hopefully I can share some of that work soon. In the mean time, this is a little something to keep this blog from crusting over. Space Musketeer means business.
