The Critters In The Trumpet Tree

A few days ago, I had a really nice reunion with fellow animation artist (and magician!) Flaviano Armentaro in Milano, Italy. Right after that I did that piece above with the green critters chit chatting in their tree cafe. (BTW: Tree and characters take part of 'The Recalibrated Fantastic Adventures of Huckleberry Finn')


  1. This is awesome! And those tree branches are more "Dr. Suess" than the stuff Dr. Seuss drew. I love your character designs... you have the most appealing style. It's great.

  2. wow, i'm without words..
