Skee-hole-ez

My friend and at one time fellow studio com-padre Thomas Scholes creates amazing out of this world landscapes. A jewel which finds its ways into each of his landscapes is a simple figure. While simple, these figures tell a story as if a traveler on a journey into the world he has created. The above is a winter landscape sketch with a stolen Skee-hole-ez figure.

The First Noel - Lexi Walker - Artwork

I recently had the opportunity to help out TML Studios on a Christmas video for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints entitled The First Noel with Lexi Walker. I created these early Color Keys which served to inform the Mood, Staging, and Visual Design.


I also did a bit of 3D Modeling and UV work for the Nativity Scene. I am not a 3D artist and so the crude 'Hand Carved' style worked well with my limited 3D skills.

I hope it will bring a greater measure of Christmas joy into your life. Enjoy!
