  1. Hey!!!, that is the “Palacio Salvo” (Safe Palace) from Montevideo, Uruguay!
    I know him because I’m from Montevideo.
    If you decide come to Uruguay, I can introduce you whit two famous Drawers like Ignacio Calero or Eduardo Barreto, and another drawers that are not famous yet, but I considered them very good! If you wan to see pics of the “real Montevideo” see my blogs:

  8. Hey Florian,

    My name is Brett and I'm a Character Artist over at Disney in Orlando. One of my co-workers was showing me your site yesterday and I was sifting through your blog this morning. Love your animated style. Very, very cool.
