Mac


You can't have Bloo without Mac, so here he is. As you can see Mac went through a big change. He started out more of a "Peanuts" "Dennis the Menace" type kid but there was something about this design that didn't feel right. He felt dated to me or something and I could never really "connect" to this kid. So I quickly changed the design of the head there he was.
Only afterwards did my family point out that he looks just like me at that age. I can totally see it now, but at the time it was totally subconcious.

Blooregard Q. Kazoo


I know it's hard to believe that there was actual visual development on a character as simple as Bloo, but it's true. He first started out as a transparent nebulous shape then became solid and got shorter and shorter. It's almost as if the character was literally coming into focus the more I thought about him.

Sunset Junction



To make up for the long absence I'm trying to post more often. This is a bg from an episode that we just finished and delivered yesterday called "Bus the Two of Us." I really like the mood this shot evokes.

WOW!!




The Foster's episode "Go Goo Go" was nominated for a primetime Emmy award today! Also nominated was Cartoon Network's Camp Lazlo. Plus my good friend Rob Renzetti was nominated for his show "My Life as a Teenage Robot" in the one hour or more category. Way to go everyone! Congrats!

We're Back


AGGGGGHHHH!! I know it's been a while since we've updated, and as Wilt would say "I'm Sorry, is that OK?" The only excuse I have is that we've been pretty busy actually making the show. So to make up for not posting any drawings during the month of June (or most of May for that matter) I'm starting July by posting a drawing with lots of drawings on it. I did this piece for a merchandising proposal.

I apologize for flooding the blog with development stuff, I promise we'll add more production stuff soon. But because some of you have asked for it, here is some of the early sketches of Frankie.
