“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

[16.25 x 8" - red pencil, COPIC and STAEDTLER markers on sketchbook paper]



Drawn and rendered in a sketchbook for a delightful fan I was introduced to at this past weekend's CTN ANIMATION EXPO. It was great to see their reaction as I handed them back the finished piece.

At one point this image was an exercise in frustration as the COPIC markers I was using were starting to run out. Damned non-renewable art resources.

Note to self: Start buying markers (or the inks that refill them) in bulk quantities.
