A Galaxy Quest
Hey all just got back from New York about a week ago to attend my cousin's wedding, which was very cool. My sweetie BooBooKitty went with me as well to run around Soho, Brooklyn and Time Square. Stayed with my cousin Danny over in Staten Island. I do have to say that I saw some cool art hanging by artists trying to sell their work there on the streets. Of course I took a bunch of pictures. I do have to say that New York drivers are NUTS! I had my life flash before my eyes on two occasions.
This past Thursday I started my new term teaching the Character Design class at the Gnomon School of Visual Effects. I have 7 kids that signed up for my class this time around. I am having them redesign the characters to the movie "Galaxy Quest" I'm so looking forward in seeing what they come up with....it should be a lot of fun. I know it's not a great movie but I do like that flick a lot it's one of those guilty pleasures. I have attached my sketches that I did a demo for the class. i wanted to show the students that I wanted them to keep their drawings very loose...all I care about is getting some interesting shapes for this first round of character sketches. I'll post more in the future as the term moves along.
