Coraline Apple Trees

I worked on a movie called "Coraline." Because there were so many plants in the movie, the studio had an entire team making them. One of the many things I worked on in this department was the apple trees.

These trees were used in many scenes and in many different ways in the movie, but, we only had about 35 of them, so, we had to keep re-dressing them for different scenes. That meant either removing, or putting on new leaves, apples and blossoms, not to mention constantly repairing branches, and modifying the trees to make them larger or smaller.

Here they are in the "Other World," all leafy and covered in apples.

And here's a shot of them in them blossoming in the spring time. The blossoms were made out of popcorn.

The Woods

Sometimes I just feel like drawing trees.

Robots in disguise

A while ago I got a little obsessed with designing my own transformers, these are the results.
From left to right: Amelia, a Geebee Sportster. Grave Robber, a Cadillac Hearse, and Crash, an ankylosaurus.
They're more than meets the eyes.

Monster Dump

Today, I was riding the MAX, drawing monsters.
From top to bottom, a skulk, dark creeper and hobgoblin.
