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,



great work

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!
