Visiting Bruno Bozzetto

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of visiting and meeting the legendary animation director Bruno Bozzetto at his studio in Milan.  I had always been a big fan of his work since I was very young.  If you don't know what he has done, do some research on the net and check it out his extensive list of projects, among them some classic features like West and Soda, Allegro Non Troppo and VIP My Brother Superman and also hundreds of shorts and his famous character Mr. Rossi, which he drew for me.
Besides being a great artist he is also a great person and a gentleman and I had a great time talking with him.

New Personal Drawings

These are only some personal drawings I did in between jobs.  I have a need to keep drawing on a daily basis.

Teaching Hand Drawn Animation

Hand drawn animation, in the way I use to do at Disney and it's principles are complex to grasp in a 3 hour class. It might had been a lot of information in a short time for the new students but I am sure they got a few things that I tried to explain. It takes a while to master it and slowly they will develop it and will become second nature to them.
I loved teaching theses classes and I want to thank the students for their patience with me and to the Nemo Academy for the opportunity.

Magazine Illustration

If you find this magazine, get it for 2 reasons: First, Salma Hayek and second for an article illustrated by yours truly. A first time I did illustration for a magazine.

This is a new thing for me, a magazine illustration job is very different than animation work and I loved doing it. It was for the Mexican GQ magazine. The assignment was to draw the 10 best dressed personalities of all time and there's also a little interview with me. If you are in Mexico, check it out. Thanks to GQ editor Alfredo Cervera for the opportunity.
