I'm quite concerned with the quality of those new pencils.

BTW: I'm featured in the August 2008 issue of the ImagineFX magazine, as I noticed today. Together with some brill wizards like Gabriele Pennacchioli (DreamWorks), Colin Fix (2K Games) et al. I think I'm in good company :)

Rough Sky Rider

I did another horned SkyDucks Rider but still haven't found the time to colour/finish it...

By the by and because Richard was asking recently: for those duckish skyriders I didn't any research but I guess I was quite inspired by the Red Bull Flugtag events.

Room With A View

Last week, I stayed in Paris for some duck work related things. And this was the view from my hotel-room: (We had beautiful weather, hadn't we?)

Oh, I forgot to mention that this very off-hand critter scrambled out of my sketchbook and then right out of the window. He must be still somewhere there on that clocktower of Gare de Lyon.

I'm abroad for a week or so. See you then. Cheers!

BTW: I did a lot of design 'n development work for Red Bull over the past two years and it seems that even my ducks can't let off :)
