John Nava’s Tapestry design’s for the L.A. cathedral was a wake up call for me as to what a 2-D artist could bring to a large scale architectural project. The cash cow for such projects usually going to 3-D art or overpriced Blue chip  2-d stock that was more a decoration as part of an investment portfolio than a serious part of the architectural design process.

Here’s the story on the tapestries.

The whole cathedral is a unique and beautiful monument but that’s another story.

Design Process

Really nice new cover design for an old subject and the creative design process posted here.

Along with a quote from the Designer, Malika Favre

When you are an illustrator the challenge everytime you get a commission such as this one is to hit the right note, no matter how many goes you have at it .Most importantly: the end result has to look effortless so that all those rounds of feedback and changes have to disappear behind that end result. The process behind a project like this is however much more time consuming and sometimes challenging than it looks. And this one was a tough one, believe me : )

Presto-Pixar short

Posted in Uncategorized on October 8, 2013 by bigbabyhead

Using the Pixar short “Presto” as content for an exercise in storyboard art.

Reverse engineer the storyboard sequence from this film.

Lots of action and cuts (over 100 at my count) and no dialogue should make for a very expressive sequence.

Each drawn frame should be numbered and describe camera moves and key sound element to help support the narrative.
