Rich man sketches....

It's great to see these. The first I saw of these characters was your sculpts and subsequent foam-latex casts... I thought they looked fantastic, and it was clear that your character design is SO informed by 2D...

Looking at the original sketches shows this so clearly. You have an incredible talent for transforming your 2D drawings into 3D puppets and retaining what makes them so great in the first place.

I've been really impressed by your earlier CG stuff too... Your animation style takes so much fromt he fluidity of classic 2D animation.

And it is clear that in your stop-motion work you are managing to get that in there despite the fact that 3D puppets can't squash and stretch.

I hope everything is going well... I am looking forward to seeing this great film that you and Shel are making.

All the best!
