Fairfield city concept
New concept design for the "Fairfield" short. The city of Fairfield is an old industrial town like Gary, Indiana or maybe Milwaukee, and the work force and the city itself has been decimated by outsourcing of manufacturing to other countries and robotic automation. Unemployment is very high and the town is extremely poor. Some of the industrial buildings have been retrofitted with apartments to save the city money. We are still in preproduction for the project....

"All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up."
Found this item digging through my first and second grade papers..... funny, there's quite a lot of drawings mixed in with the boring school work. Little bright sparks mixed in with all the dull uniformity of page after page of math papers and simple sentences on white sheets of paper. Strange that I can actually remember doing a couple of them. My favorite used to be those big 11 x 17 manila paper sheets- a great big empty canvas stretched out before me on my desk.... with infinite possibilities.
Looking at drawings that kids do, I sometimes wonder why kids are so creative and freespirited, and what happens to them to lose that spark of creativity. How is it possible to sit in a grey cubicle all day and look at a computer screen?
I seem to remember getting in trouble for drawing in class quite often. Looking back, I guess I dont understand what I was doing that was so wrong.....
(Dont remember what was going thru my brain when I did this one but it may have been in my early Fauvist phase. Ha ha .....)

Im back from a visit home to visit relatives. I had a good time and accomplished nothing. Perfect vacation. Anyway, I hope everyone had a good holiday season!!
Heres another experiment- started with a tiny tree root scanned in and cut out and layered on a ground texture, together with a bunch of jellyfish photos for the skies and a sugar snap pea scanned in for the moon.
