Biddington And Birtwhistle: 100 Years City Of Burbank - The Animation Capital Of The World

Biddington and Birtwhistle are two birdish side characters out of Toby Skybuckle© (a project I'm currently developing with France based Ankama Media Group). Besides, I brought those birds to use with this sujet below, which I was asked by CTN's Tina Price to create for Burbank's Centennial. I had a lot of fun designing this.

  8. Hello, I've been a fan of your stuff for a while, but this is the first time I've commented. Just wanted to say how much I love your work. I even bought your book recently and am loving it.

    I've been wondering, where do you get most of your inspiration from?

  9. Andy, thanks a million for your lovely feedback, I very much appreciate that. Regarding your question, most of my ideas and concepts come not from animation art but other fields of art, like modern art, architecture, industrial design, literature etc.
