Generating content is a never ending journey. It amazes me how much drawing is done just to get to one usable sketch. It really is more about the exploration than it is the actual rendering. There will come a time to focus in on objects but until then there are still endless objects that I'll need to draft before I can occupy the sets with the appropriate amount of detail and keep it all cohesive is style.

Sketches of cigarette packs, cans, jars and bubble gum wrappers.

Returned from my Father's Day/ Birthday retreat at Wilbur Hot springs. Feel energized and ready for the summer production schedule.

Made solid strides in revamping some character work. It's a trip getting back to work. So many projects so little time

Know when to Hold em...

I spent the better part of the week battling the flu. It was not fun. The desire to work through tough times is tempting. " Rise to the challenge", " perservere", "tough it out" were all the thoughts running through my head on Monday morning but by 12:30 I was feverish and shivering and called it quits for the day.

Tried again Tuesday with the same results. I'm not used to being sick so this week really put my holistic training to the test. Wed-Thur took lots of Vitamin C and liquids and I'm happy to say I'm feeling better. I enjoyed a fair bit of success today and hope to get back to building on it next week.

The more production sketches I do the more I realize there is that needs to be done. I'm still focused on producing for the set "Trailer" and most of the work is currently localized on interior design. Mostly set dressing items.

I have enough rough drawings of the set to work from. Filling in the details and making sound choices will hopefully save a great deal of time when it comes to producing the actually 3D assets.

In creating an old fashioned kitchen, with all the odds an ends, I have a lot of freedom to draw from many eras that predate the 70's. Wearing the hats of both set designer and producer I'm at a decided advantage. I can always as the artist to produce more and expect that I'll grumble a little and then get to it.

At some point, however, good enough should will have to jump out at me. Until then I've got to continue to produce enough content so that I can make an educated decision.

I've been lax in updates regarding my short film. The volume of drawing has gone up and It'd good to stay on top of what's done and what's left. If I'm lucky I can cross some of the home interior items of the list. I'm happy with the focus and now just need to get into the details.

I've been focus on branding and identity lately. Happy to have completed the logo design for Bendy Berry Yoga. Some of the concept art and final product.

The task was to create an ident that would offer a playful interpretation of a reposed yoga child both boy and girl. The challenge was to create something childlike but not to naive. A striking graphic that would engage young and old.

The final designs.
