Well after 9 months in LA working to the Movie " Alvin " I come back here in Toronto and did some storyboards for the movie " 9 ". And since I was looking for some new work opening and I had loootss free time :) I just decide to drop a line to Bobby Chiu just for say hi to him, and look how things was going after the Sheridan time... So he invite me to stop by to his studio.. and honestly I had a great time...See finally some great artist do what they liked most without the frustrating and demanding weird art directions from the " white collar " Him and his talented crew re-inspired me to one of my favorite things to do... CAFFE DRAWING.
We met with them and few other artist to the subway and start to draw for few hours.. then I kept drawing to a Caffe location on Bloor and Spadina.. and here what I create... hope you will enjoy it :)


Then after the Video and had show my Portfolio to the PIXAR People one of the Directors ask me if I could do some caricatures with the same style...just probably for look if I was able to be consistent with one style... so in less then a day I sent him back all this ones trying to keep the caricature I did previously for the "PEDRO" character from the movie...And Ralph replay to my friend Sylvia:

"looking great, re-iterated that your work is among the best he has seen
in a long time and that you should keep an eye out for new postings.
I think he was pleased at how quickly you sent in the new work in
response to his feedback!"

But I never heard from them.... But I had some good feed back from Enrico Casarossa too so its all good, He is a great guy and he really liked my portfolio and told me that there was no reason why they shouldn't hire me, and give to me some suggestion and inspire me to publish and keep working to some of my ideas for some book or comic-strip.... One day I will be at PIXAR.. I hope hahahah:)

Hi Everyone... What happen to me... well i will try to fill you up with what kept me busy this past year..
This video/storyboard scene I did since the greatest Riccardo Curtis, suggested me to storyboard a little chasing sequence. A short story idea that is fully mine, something that really shows what I love and want to do ...... the stories I gravitate toward and that I want to tell ...I ended up designing the characters, edited the entire sequence and added very minimal sound effect to get a complete feel for the chase seq...

And I submitt at Blue Sky Studio and Pixar, hoping.... well you konw :)
