El Tigre!

I have the best job in the World, or at least that's what most of my co-workers tell me. When I get scenes like this to layout it's hard to disagree with them. This particular scene is from the episode "The Mother of all Tigres" storyboarded by the amazing Eddie Trigueros. The cartoon is called El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera and it's produced and created by my super talented pals Jorge Gutierrez and Sandra Equihua. It airs Saturday mornings(check you local listings)on Nickelodeon.

horton cont....

All of these drawings for the Horton test were done on my tablet pc in either painter or sketchbook pro....


A while back I was offered a storyboard test from the fine folks at Bluesky in New York for their upcoming Horton feature. The project sounded very cool, here's a character I really liked from not only the Seuss books but also the Jones and Clampett cartoons. Unfortunately the timing wasn't right. I was (and am still currently) working at a job I really like, so I had to respectfully decline. So they came back to me and suggested they could work around my schedule and that I could possibly be brought on doing freelance from home and would I please reconsider. I said that I would think it over. Finally I agreed that if my schedule permited I would at least take the test. Unfortunately, things at work got pretty crazy, in a busy, good kinda way and I was not able to complete the test. I did however do a bunch of little thumbnails and rough sketches for the test and thought I'd share some of those drawings here.
