So a few months after my designs were turned in, the folks at Renegade asked if I'd be interested doing a series of illustrations for a montage piece that super talented artist, Scott O'Brien had storyboarded. Style wise, they were looking for something in the vien of the Mary Blair's book, "I Can Fly". Yikes....talk about setting the bar high!!
Well, being a huge fan of Mary Blair's work, I knew right away that that I can never reproduce the charm and beauty of her illustrations. After a brief moment of utter panic, I decided the best way to approach it, was to not try and copy her work.... but do my own version of it. The following series of illustrations are the ones that appear in the movie. Despite all the artistic flaws I see in them now, I still think they were sucessful in capturing the feeling of her work. Anyway...enough yakkity yak. Merry Christmas to you all, and hope you guys enjoy em!!
