... and I'm going home. And I swear that I'll start answering my mail really soon now! Update (TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2008): I'm home and all run down after about 15 hours of flight. Read you soon!

BTW: Did you see Jake's sub candy? It's definitely worth a look.

Pixel 3.0 Symposium, Vienna

BTW: This October, we'll speak at the Pixel 3.0 Symposium about our developmental work etc. I'll add some more information to this post a little later - I'm still abroad. A big sorry for not answering e-mails at the moment. I'm too busy with travelling, presentations etc. I'll reply as soon as I'm back at the studio. Update (WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 2008): Alright, here's a wee bit more on the Pixel Symposium in Vienna (Oct 25 and 26). So far as I know dear colleague Maryam Laura Moazedi (StarDucks Prod.) will be there with me as well as Lee Stringer (LucasArts) and one of the good boys from Ambient Entertainment.

Colour Inspiration

The trees still have no leaves on their branches. Well, it's still winter, here. Update (TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 09, 2008): What I've forgotten to mention is that this "weaponish" horn up the front is a motor horn. The only thing it hurts is one's ears. A flying cheers from Cordoba (ARG)!

Muzzle Flashes

Sorry for the lack of updates and replies! We're terribly busy ('n still terribly far away) so I'm bad about answering e-mails and comments. Below you find two early sketches of some minor characters for the StarDucks project. I hope I can post some coloured/finished pieces, soon.

After all, I'm thinking (and my dear pal Herrera is forcing me :) of doing a sketchbook sometime in the near future. The title should probably read "On Critters, Ducks And Dragons And Sundry Other Things And Hobs".
