Time Lapse Illustration

Recently I've been working with a documentary film crew doing a series of time lapse illustrations for the opening sequence of an upcoming film. The overhead mounted camera records my renderings using stop motion image capture software.  The image will come to life merging with moving imagery.  The trick is to keep the rendering on registration working fairly quickly until the scene is complete (and making sure our cat doesn't jump up on the work surface).  Thanks to Hayot and Larry.

This film is scheduled to premiere in October.  I'll be sure to remind you again before the release date.

What may appear to be my most boring post yet is actually a really great art resource I was introduced to recently.  If you work with color (in any way), check out the site Kuler by Adobe. This web-hosted application is great for generating color themes for your projects, whether it be art, design, home or web.  I've been using it quite a bit lately, and it also works well for experimenting and sharing your color variations and themes.  

Thanks for the heads up, Jose!

The last few weeks have been spent traveling for art conventions, workshops, and galleries.  Just like to thank Visual Arts Coordinator Emily Colucci and everyone at the Jasper Indiana Community Art Center for allowing me to exhibit thru May at the Krempp Gallery.  Fantastic meeting you all!
