Goodbye Susy

My friend Susy is leaving Cartoon Network next week to work on the new Cleveland Show on Fox. A few years ago Susy was our intern here on Fosters back when I was working as a PC. She climbed the ranks quickly and when I moved from PC to Clean-up she took over for me. She has done a great job and I will miss her.

I did this drawing for her last night after work. I hope she is ready for the "Family Guy" sense of Humor cause it is just a little bit harsher then Fosters... just a little bit. Don't get me wrong, I think Family Guy is hysterical - Im just sayin'. This reminds me of that time...

The final color

If you were wondering what the castle was going to look like after it had gone to color, wonder no more. The wickedly talented Sue Mondt colored the background below the other day. I think it is absolutely amazing. It is so crazy to see something that I worked on turn out so beautiful. It has been such a wonderful experience for me to work with so many talented artist over the past three years here on Fosters. I have learned more from them then they will ever EVER know.

Fosters Background Clean-up

Hello all, sorry I haven't posted in a long time I have been very busy with the end of Foster's nearing. For the last few weeks I have been cleaning up backgrounds for Foster's, here is one I am particularly proud of. It took almost two full days to complete. Below it you will find the original rough Background designed by the amazing Dave Dunnet.
