More Mam. City oldies
Just because there was such a HUGE response to the first posting of Mammoth City Messengers art, I thought I'd post another picture! Because you didn't demand it- the kids in the cafeteria hangin'! This was one of the 5 or 6 images we did of the kids in different "photoshoot" illos for marketing. Most ALL of these didn't get used at all. This is the pencils that ended up getting inked by the great Howard Shum. I can't find the final color for it right now. We had a Disney alum friend helping design the environments (like this cafeteria) by the name of Craig Grasso. Old school.
By the way, tell me if this has ever happened to you artists: Yesterday, a graphic designer who is in a office near us, came into our office for the first time. He looked around and saw all the art on the walls, the huge Disney art desks we have, and Rob sitting behind his drawing a picture. He was amazed! He said he didn't know that people still hand drew characters and stuff anymore. He couldn't believe we weren't just creating everything in Illustrator on the computer. And this is a Graphic designer! What are they teaching at art schools that people-even graphic designers- aren't learning about drawing anymore?!? I couldn't believe it.
