This weekend, Open Season is going to be released in the theaters. Although I'm proud of the work I've done on that project, I'm even more excited to see that Sony is going to be releasing our Surf's Up trailer for next year's feature animated film.

For the past two and a half years I've been one of the art directors for Surf's Up; I'm telling you the film will blow your mind!

Take a look at the Surf's Up trailer.
This movie will be like going on vacation to an island in the South Pacific!

I know you've all been waiting for this, because I've been waiting for this. I've been trying to goad Marcos Mateu into starting up his own blog for months, and finally the nagging has paid off.

This is going to be Marcos' own personal blog where he is going to post sketches, artwork, doodles -- and his own on-line "improvisational" comic book!

Marcos is one of the top talents in the animation industry, and one of the most talented individuals I've ever had the pleasure of working with. On top of that, he's a great guy and a good friend. So, please stop by and say hello.

Without further ado...

Take me there now!

Head Sketches

Due to popular demand, I thought I would post few more drawings from my sketchbook. The figure drawing model wasn't very exciting, so...I decided I would turn the tables and draw some of the artists.

These were drawn with marker and ink.

Coffee Shop Sketches

As you know, our Sketchclub group goes out every Friday to draw in our sketchbooks. Marcos has been bugging me to post some of these sketchbook sketches, so I've gone ahead and put one up. This is taken directly from my sketchbook. This is how I laid it out on my page.

Marcos Mateu Artwork at EL PACIFICO!

You're looking at a beautiful painting by Marcos Mateu that we have posted at

I know it was my turn to do the next installment for El Pacifico, but since I've been swamped as of late, I just couldn't do it. So, Marcos and I did a collaboration on this one. I had roughed out a page, and Marcos was kind enough to work up the image. Wow, I was blown away at the artwork (better than I could have done). Go and check out the full page!

Marcos and I talked about where we would like to take the story, and we've come up with some pretty fun (unconventional) ideas that will take it out of the historical, and move it into the fantasy...without going into full fledged Pirates of the Carribean territory. (Not that we don't like that film, but we certainly don't want to do what's already been done.) To do this, we've added another character, an evil Cardinal to battle with the humble Friars!

Don't forget to check in on El-Pacifico from time to time to see where the story goes.
