A “Fred Moore girl” animated by Ollie Johnston in the early 40s. It’s assumed it was for a propaganda film of some sort for the US troops. Not the kind of stuff you normally get to see from Disney artists.
This is a rare little bit of Ollie animation. I remember Andreas sharing it at a tribute. I think it’s in his possession and that he shot (and, I believe inbetweened) this clip: it wasn’t for any purpose other than internal fun. Those Freddie girls were popular; someone was going to do it. -Waveybrain
Stills from the upcoming animated feature film ‘The Book of Life’. From animation director Jorge Gutierrez, creator of Nickelodeon’s 'El Tigre' comes a unique and visually stunning new CG film. U.S. Theatrical Release on October 17th, 2014.
Jorge was at CalArts when I was there. He was in Experimental Animation and studied under Jules Engel, among others. Back then he was working on what apparently was a concept for this feature film. I think it was titled, “La Luna”. It was pretty charming and had some of the original design quirks that “Book of Life” seems to have-like the wooden facial textures. I wonder how deep that concept actually is. Is he saying something by that choice? Well, I wouldn’t put it past him. People who are so specific with their art usually have a rationale for every single stroke. I don’t know anything about the story, but I imagine it has some relation to “The Devine Comedy”. It’s truly incredible how they translated his (their-Sandra is partner) aesthetics. Make sure you follow this one. It’s going to be quite the spectacle on the big screen.
We spent a few days near Sequoia recently. If you’ve never been, it’s worth a visit. This is at Grant Grove. The trees here are among the top ten largest on the globe! People in the East didn’t believe the trees were this large, so several were chopped down and sent out around as proof (IDIOTS!!). Even then people believed it was a CA hoax. At least, that’s what I read. -Waveybrain

Well, this is pretty tragic. I have to wonder why she stayed in that situation. It’s very sad. Hopefully, someone dealing with this kind of thing will see this and get out after that first bruise.
It’s a trip to see a movie you worked on appear in your Tumblr feed. Most people in the biz I talk to consider Atlantis a flop. It’s nice to see that there are people who liked it. It was my first feature, so I don’t know if I really enjoyed working on it because of that, or because I liked the movie. Either way, it was fun to draw Milo. -Waveybrain
Our new show, Wallykazam! recently launched. If you’ve got kids, check it out! It’s a fun and appealing show. The gathering in this pic was to celebrate the best ratings of a Nick Jr. show in 10yrs! Sometimes I read that 2D is dead, but I can tell you that at least on this show we ship the final boards after weeks and weeks of fleshing out the storyboards with a lot of key poses and acting. It’s a ton of work, but all that love comes through, I think. Of the ones that have aired thus far, I worked on ‘The Castle Caper’ episode. There’s some fun stuff in it.
This was a beat board sketch I did for a friends ‘shorts pitch’ at Nick last year. They didn’t bite on the short, but I thought his idea was clever enough to help him with the pitch. #pitch, #Nick, #animatedshort
