COAT OF SMILES, parody art of iconic symbols. A duck's hat, a mouse's ears and a smiling yellow button. Three iconic things brought together in one artwork.

Alright, the "Bacher Week" at the University of Applied Sciences Salzburg will start right tomorrow... I've packed all my pencils, paper and smiles and I'm ready to go! I'll try to post some photos of the animation week here shortly...

In order to get attuned properly to this very week, here are two 'Beauty And The Beast' storyboard drawings by Chris Sanders and a story sketch (below) by Glen Keane, all of them coloured by Hans Bacher:

  1. wished I were there...

  2. Nicely! It is new style!
    Good luck, Florian!

  3. Even your lines seem to have a line of action!!! Beautiful sketch!

  4. Great to see some of your art with cross hatching style. I always loved cross hatching, specially the way Jack Davis used it on his very funny style MAD drawings. There's no words to talk about Glen Keane.
