Desert/Joshua Trees

Here are some images from a trip I recently took to the desert. I have never spent much time in the desert, and I found it to be a very peaceful place. I know that Bill Watterson and Mobius found a lot of inspiration there, and if it's good enough for them, it's good enough for anyone.

I ultimately found time to gather my thoughts, refocus, and get inspired again. More illustrations, stories and sketches are on the way.

Clone Wars, Adieu

There was this announcement from Lucasfilm today. That means the end of the regular seasons of Clone Wars, but they mentioned that they have plans to release more material. There was a video they featured that contained two characters I worked on, a yellow and red Jedi pair with otherworldly hair. They were really fun to work on, and I'm glad they will be seen, somehow, somewhere. The yellow Jedi was directly taken from one of Iain McCaig's drawings for Episode II (as seen in the art-of book I pored over when I was in college!) It was really fun to play with the design and make it "Clone Wars."

I post this stuff up periodically to show what I had a hand in, but honestly, as I've said before, I am just a small part of the larger clockwork that is Clone Wars. The Clone Wars team, all the people I worked with and learned from over the last couple years, you are all amazing. I am lucky and humbled to have been a part of it.

I don't know exactly what the future has in store for me, but I will count my time with the Lucasfilm Animation people as one of the high-points.
