Blue Man

I've recently been doing development illustration on this animation feature project for writer, Bob Swain.
The story is set among the people of the Sahara desert.
Bob is now seeking further funding in Europe and elsewhere.
It's been sheer pleasure to work on this wonderful material and I hope we can continue in the near future.

Limbolo au pays des hommes bleus.
Simplicity, elegance and mystery. A perfect fit. Unfortunately, not a 'Taureau' in sight.
Cheers.

Luc,
Malheureusement, Il n'y a pas des taureaux. Mais, on a quelques autre betes aux quatre pieds. And, if I have my way, the djinn will have horns.

Rupesh and Dela,
Brindis!

Dominic Bugatto said...

Damn............. they're fine.

If you ever publish a book of your work , put me down for a copy.

Stunning images. Tell your man to go see Luc Besson - he's got a lot of cash now!

Lorin said...

your work has a wonderful sense of weight - probably the result of using flats

Elliot said...

Interestingly I think you work has a wonderful sense of flatness, perhaps because of your weight.

Jason Kotey said...

Easy, ladies!

Joshua James said...

Really beautiful! They have the mood of a painted scene but with the strenght of the graphic style

Master of lights and transparency!

love the textures in the backgrounds of the fist two... so subtle and rich at the same time. The third seems to me to hail from a different world, a real sense of endlessness. Beautiful wor, I hope you get the opportunity to do more on this theme! AM
