If you managed to click over here near the middle of 2016 (I don’t know when you’ll be reading this, or who, where or WHAT you might be) …
… you’ll have noticed a large overhaul to this site. Big changes are in the wind. The kid is graduating in June, and Jess and I are looking to move and expand into new digs. I thought the changes should extend into my web presence as well. Sort of throwing a new coat of paint on the beast. The pages are a bit more collected and organized and more importantly the content has been updated.
New art work for everyone!
The hope is that with change comes the chance to create better habits. I plan to post more often, not just in the blog but updating the core content whenever I can. New Papercut Kids comic pages are getting done, and I plan to update that site soon as well. New projects and an eventual shop will pop up here to sell prints and sketch books. Stay tuned for more!
This past spring one of the best things I got to do with an iTunes season pass was sit down on a Sunday evening and watch a banked episode or two of The Legend of Korra with the fam. As anyone familiar with the Nickelodeon series Avatar: The Last Airbender knows the new series launched this year and has been wildly successful in its execution and with the fans.
The creators and production teams have created a living, breathing world populated by compelling characters. One of the creators, Bryan Konietzko, posts frequently enough on his tumblr site to give a glimpse into the production or his own thought processes. In a world where “The Art of…” books can run 30-40 bucks a pop, a free look and a running commentary from a successful tv show creator is an invaluable tool and limitless source of inspiration.
So if you’ve ever been curious about The Avatar series or just the professional creative mindset go check out his site and enjoy!
oh and as an added bonus here is a storyboard i found for the show done by Seung Eun Kim. he’s so good at action it makes me blush… i. am. shamed…
