This is the painting from the design down below. I received the approval from Chris Kauflin, the writer of the series of Smiletown Books to post it. This is part of the concept art for the 3d short that we are doing.
DRUNKEN MOUSE...yes, DRUNKEN MOUSE.
So....I walked into my office a few days ago, and I found the box of little chocolate bottles (evidence A) that was a gift, scratched open and 6 tiny bottles have been half eaten/drunken. I asked Terryl (Terryl Whitlach, amazing and extremely knowledgeable creature designer) and she said "Yes, that was a mouse". I usually don't post pictures, but I'm proud to say that : A mouse, broke into my office, ate some chocolate, got drunk with scotch, and left.....provably to an after hour office party.
PS: She did also say that "provably it died after that". So, minute of silence. Rest in peace little guy.

...A little traditional just for a change, and 2 posts within a week!!! . These were models from my class at the Academy. Long poses, short ones and even shorter than the ones before, 10 secs. That day was a lot of fun, but we ended up exhausted...

Very sad news. Barbara Bradley passed away this last Friday. Barbara was for every one of her students not only a teacher, but also a mentor and a friend, always looking over your shoulder helping you as much as she could. Thank you very much for sharing all your knowledge and warmth with us very fondly. You will be immensely missed and we will always remember you. Rest in peace.
