Yay For The First Meeting!

I feel the workshop went really well with Joe! It was really enlightening and his insight was much appreciated. I've contacted Calabash Animation and Digital Kitchen to see if they will let us tour their facilities, watch them work, or have someone speak to us (so we can of course ask more questions and stuffs). If I get the green light from them I'll set things up like the date and time and all that good stuff. We're on a roll though so...start drawing stuff people!

Doodled before my Acting for Animators class. I am not sure where I am going with the don't know for some reason I'm thinking something kinda like Santa Claus but like, a groundhog lumberjack version? I am also playing with the idea that there is like a network of groundhogs that leave the treats and not just one. Or that maybe instead of a guy it would be a girl. Er anyways, just sharing some things I came up with, more to come later. I should do my Illustration homework >_<.

Workshop w/ Joe Merideth

Save the date: February 17, 2010 from 5pm to 6pm

Joe has agreed to meet with us for an hour to talk about anything we want. To better customize the information we hound out of him, let's have a game plan. Firstly, write down any and all questions that you may want to ask him ahead of time. It really sucks when there's all this information you'd love to know but you forget the question when the time comes! Secondly, we just need to know ahead of time what we want out of this little workshop. If we gear it towards what we want to know we can utilize the hour to the max!

(We've all received this message, I'm putting it here for archiving purposes!)

February 2010: Groundhog's Day Eve

So the topic decided on for this month is "Groundhog's Day Eve" based upon one of our very own's yearly tradition.

Keep in mind it doesn't have to be a typical setting, we can challenge ourselves and put it in a different country, a different time period, anything! The more unique we can make the approach to the topic Groundhog's Day Eve, the more the "concept" will stand out.


Some links I wanted to share:
David Russell's "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" Story Boards
About what goes into a successful Concept Art portfolio (for video games, but I think we can get something out of it anyway!)
Coraline Concept Art
Jon Klassen, concept artist

Post your links too!
