WELCOME 2016 AND ALL THE MOVIES THAT ARE COMING OUT THIS YEAR THAT I'VE BEEN WORKING ON!

Well, another year has flown by.  2015 went by like a shot.  My grandparents always said, the older you get, the faster time seems to go by.  I think that's why people my age probably have their mid-life crisis about now.

I had a very busy 2015 and this year looks to be just as jam packed, but that's great!

3 films that I had the good fortune to be a part of are being released in 2016, so I will have TONS of artwork to post as they come out.

Just thought the first post this year should be a highlight of what's to come.

1.  KUNG FU PANDA 3

Now, I didn't have anything to do with this film but, my partner of 19 years and soon to be my husband did.
Jeff is the Co-Producer and has been working on the KungFu Panda franchise for more than 10 years.  Jeff's an amazingly talented, smart and kind producer.  I'm super excited for him and the film and I just wanted to give him and all the hard working artists and techs at Dreamworks a shout out for their hard work and dedication.
Also, a bit of proud trivia, Jeff created, Kai, the supernatural villain of KFP3!  That's right!  He wrote a treatment for the sequel ages ago that the studio went back to, to find Po's adversary for this third go around.  Jeff researched the mythology, added his own story and character elements and came up with the creature you'll see in the film.  So, so proud of him!

 




2. ANGRY BIRDS-THE MOVIE

This is the first of my three films.  I had an absolute BLAST on this film!  I've still, never played the game but the project was just all out fun, creative, silly, insane.  I cannot wait to see the finished film! I think it's going to be a very pleasant surprised!






3. THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS

This may just be one of the sweetest animated films in a long time.  I love working for Illumination and the zany tone of their films, but this project finds a slightly different tone, maybe it's just that it's dealing with our pets, what they mean to us, what we mean to them, but while it's still insanely funny, it's got a HUGE heart.  I've seen a fairly complete version and it's fantastic!







4. SING

The second Illumination film that will be out at the end of 2016, is still being shrouded in a bit of mystery, so I won't say much for now, but it's clearly a musical and the animal filled world is beautiful to see, just so inventive and stylish.  Anxious for the studio to start releasing more info on this one, but here's some images that are out in the press.






Looking forward to sharing lots of fun artwork on the blog this year!

FRANKENSTEIN FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, here it is, October 30th that well know pre-Halloween celebration known the world over as, Frankenstein Friday!

What?  You've never heard of this?  Well, that's because it's year one of the celebration started by my good friend and immensely talented artist, Russ Braun.  https://www.facebook.com/russ.braun.589

Russ starts everyday by doing sketches of random subjects that he loves and Frankenstein turned out to be one of his favorite repeat subjects.  From sketching movie incarnations or the Groovy Ghoulies Frank, to The Monster Cereal baddies of Frankenberry, Count Chocula and BooBerry, Russ decided that Fridays sketches were always going to be Frankenstein related.

And this year with Halloween falling on a Saturday, Russ decided to have the Friday before Halloween, October 30th be an official day to celebrate all types of artwork created out of a love for Frankenstein. So he created an event page on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/events/724226927682174/

All day today, anyone and everyone is welcome to post something they created or have or love or whatever that relates to Frankenstein.

I went a bit nuts and made 6 pieces, but it was a really nice break from endless work hours to shut everything else out and just have some fun.  So here's all my Frankenstein Friday Fun!!!!



Peter Cushing as Dr. Frankenstein


Frankenweenie



Glen Strange as The Monster



Frankenhooker-(one of the cheesiest and most idiotic sexploitation films ever made...)



A mash-up of my favorite breakfast cereal when I was a kid and my favorite comedy team EVER!


Karloff

TIME CAPSULE: WHAT!?!? OH, YEAH I DID DRAW THAT.

Every artist collects and collects years, boxes, folders and drawers full of artwork.  The digital world makes saving everything a bit more convenient, because all those physical sketches, paintings and sculptures have to actually be placed somewhere.

I recently unearthed scores of stuff and thought it might be interesting to post a collection of works from the past 25 or so years.

There's some Disney t-shirt merchandise designs, political illustrations, watercolors, acrylic dry brush illustrations, college paintings, stop motion character sculpts, cut out story panels, life drawings, brush and ink sketches, linoleum block printing and some of the most boring clean-up drawings ever regretfully given life.

Some of these were done as I was teaching myself how to use a specific medium, or how to learn storyboard, or early photoshop compositing and the frog couple who seem to be trapped in some 1950's Douglas Sirk melodrama, well I've no idea what the hell that was about, but I liked the drawings.

So enjoy and brief but hopefully enjoyable trip through the Webb archives.
