This month I’ve won Artist of the Month at 3D Gladiators for some 2D work I did.

Also, I’ve just been hired to do preproduction work on Battlestar Galactica by a small company in Pasadena called Cinema Pacific. It’s a lot of fun, and very challenging and demanding gig. I’m having a great time so far. I can hardly wait to get to work in the mornings!

The winning entry for that contest is shown below. It was originally painted on posterboard in acrylic, and got a B, rather than an A, because the teacher thought it didn’t have a clear center of focus. I argued that it did, because for any face, the first thing you look at is the character’s eyes, so of course it did. The teacher didn’t agree, but I have an award for this painting that disagrees with her.
