An old doodle from 1990; when I was working at Disney UK and we were gearing up for Tailspin. A series that used characters from Jungle Book, this is a page of doodles to get the feel of the new characters.

Matte painting

Before I got into animation I did a matte painting for Paul McCartney's feature, Give my regards to Broadstreet. Unfortunately the shot ended up on the cutting room floor and didn't make it into the final film. The camera is a beautifull Bell & Howell registration pin from the early days of cinema. Even though it ran from a motor it still had it's hand cranking handle; I wonder where it is now....


I couldn't resist this. A picture I took while working in Vancouver some years ago.

Nude oil sketch.

Oil on prepared paper. The finished painting reminded me of a pulp fiction paperback, so I thought I'd try it and put together a mock up version in Adobe Fireworks.
