This Frog... running. I don't keep a real sketchbook. But I have thousands of random drawings that end up on the backs of script pages, phone message notes and other miscellaneous scraps.

I'll post a selection here if you want to see some really peculiar stuff.

Brave King Fergus

 Here is an early character sketch of Merida's dad, King Fergus from the Pixar film "Brave". We always knew we wanted a blocky, furry, jovial chunk of a guy. I dashed out this painted sketch early on trying to capture some sense of his personality.

 Brilliant artists Carter Goodrich, Matt Nolte, Steve Pilcher and Pixar's smart character and sim departments created the amazingly realized Fergus that actually appeared in the film.
