Swashbuckling Birthday Present!

This is a birthday present I did recently. I usually don't like to do that, but when I was ill I didn't have the time to buy a proper one. And she wished for it ... last year. She explicitly asked for a pirate. What could I do? I made an exception to the rule. Then I quickly bought a cheap plastic baroque picture frame to add that special extra something. When I gave it to her she yelled and immediately hung it to the wall. Well, I guess she liked it ...

Black & White Rhino Business!

We're quite busy at the studio right now because we have a deadline in a couple of weeks. So it was a bad time to get ill but I'm fit again and back into business. Earlier this week I finished the model sheets for a rhino and it already looks quite nice in CG. And it will absolutely not look like the one above. I'm really sorry that I can't show any of the actual designs. So here is a fun drawing instead.

As you might know there are black rhinos and white rhinos, well I would call this one a black and white rhino. Oh, and he is the editor of the "Daily Jungle News".

I've got the Flu!

I've got the flu. That's boring. But the fates have been at least partially merciful with me. Yesterday I borrowed Shogun on DVD from the city libraray. You know, the mini-series from the 80s starring Richard Chamberlain and Toshiro Mifune. Television at its finest. Haven't seen it in ages. Makes being ill much less boring. Domo arigato gozaimasu!

Oh, I almost forgot. I did this picture for a pitch. Quite different in style. Guess what the theme was!
