Around L.A.





I thought, after looking at my own blog,how neglectful I have been with new posts. All I can say is we have been crazy on our film!!
I thought some of you might like to see some of my around town guoache sketches.
Sorry for the long delay.

Your work is amazing!
So much atmosphere in your paintings, I can almost smell the rain on the asphalt, when looking at the "bookstore".

Are you still working on Astro Boy with John Nevarez? I just recently found out my fellow Dane Jakob Jensen is the Animation Director. I'm really looking forward to seeing it.

Take care,

Hans

Hi Samuel,

Your work is absolutely breathtaking. I love it.
My wife and I are both in love with the book store painting and I was wondering if it's available in poster form or maybe even the actual painting.

Please let me know!

Regards,

Marco
