Cloudy Children's Books
I had the opportunity to illustrate a children's book for Cloudy. You can buy Teamwork! HERE. Below are some pages without the text.
I collaborated with Justin Thompson and Andy Bialk on "The Tasty Tale of Chewandswallow".
Also, I illustrated a few pages on Carey Yost's book "Flint Saves the Day".
Brigette Barrager illustrated "The Weather Report: with Sam Sparks".

Go See Cloudy!
Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs opens today. I saw it earlier this week and was blown away. I am always impressed when I can see the filmmaker’s thumbprint on the final picture.
In designing the characters, we envisioned the simplicity of Miroslav Sasek’s illustrations combined with the charm of the Muppets. We were constantly trying to simplify our shapes, and exaggerate the expression. The animators on the film did an amazing job of maintaining this style throughout the film. Here are some character designs.

Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs
Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs premieres on September 18th! The film is adapted from the children’s book written by Judi Barrett. Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Clone High) are the co-directors and co-writers. Justin Thompson, Production Designer, compiled an amazing visual development team. Carey Yost, Mark Colangelo, and myself were responsible for the final character designs. I am honored to be part of this film. Go see it!
Here are some posters I designed for Flint’s bedroom. I will post some character designs when the film opens.
The Art and Making of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is now available. Special thanks to Tracy Miller-Zarneke.

I've been helping some friends start an animation studio in Pune, India. We are beginning to pitch our first production, Doubtsourcing. It’s a 2D animated sitcom about global collaboration, or the lack thereof, centered on a dysfunctional IT company in Bangalore, India. Even though most of the characters are Indian, the show is written for Americans. I've had a blast working with the talented crew. Check out the site http://www.badmash.tv/.

About two years ago I had the opportunity to work on Madagascar 2 as a character designer. The amazing Dreamworks/PDI art department was led by, production designer, Kendal Cronkhite. I had the honor to work closely with character designers Craig Kellman and Andy Bialk. Congrats to the entire crew!
The film premieres this Friday, November 7. Go check it out! Also, The Art of Madagascar book by Jerry Beck is now available. The book is full of beautiful artwork. I highly recommend it.

These were done for the "Out of Character" art show on the DreamWorks Animation campus. It's personal artwork by DWA Character Designers. Should be some amazing work by Nico Marlet, Devin Crane, Andy Bialk, Tony Siruno, Patrick Mate, Shane Prigmore, Shannon Tindle, and myself. Not sure if it's open to the public, but if you know someone who works here stop by and check it out.
