Composition, Direction… and Focus


Several people have asked if I have any of my work online and I have had to admit that I don’t have much of a public presence.  I hope to remedy that while at the same time staying within the general scope of exploring cartooning and animation.

To start off I’ll share this piece that was put together for a project currently on hiatus.  A general description of a house that had been expanded with new rooms as the owner grew richer was described.  It’s the exterior of a home where a young lad is seen briefly in an upper window as the story begins.

The image in the upper left corner represents the initial concept of the building with the other notations being my thoughts on improving the setup.  My initial thought was that the large window made the house look very tiny… almost cartoony… so the first thing I played with was the scale.

My work since I first picked up crayons to draw with as a child has been a similar exploration of themes and ideas not original to me but that have never-the-less captivated my attention.
