Just a quick gallery update today. Last Saturday, Chip Foose was on hand for his art work relase based on Disneyland and Pixar Cars. If you don't know who Chip Foose is, he is an automovtive designer and owns his own wheel company. He was also the designer on the show Overhaulin' on TLC. The concept was that a family would help the show basically steal one of their family members old classic car that had been sitting around neglected and then fully restore it usually with even more power and a new paint design and surprise them with it. So it seems Disney gave him the go ahead to add his touch to the Cars of Radiator Springs. If you enter the Gallery, you may see the art work on the left, BUT make sure to go right into the Vault. That is where the actually orginal paintings are. Below are photos of those originals
Also, the Gallery is now offer personal character sketches. I'm glad to see this spaced used more regularly now.
That's it for now. Have a great week.
P.S. Have you tried an Orange Frappe at the Blue Ribbon Bakery? I got one on a whim and there really goooood. Reminds me of an Orange Julius.
P.P.S. I went to the Art of Tim Burton exhibit at LACMA and loved it. I had no idea Tim was such an artist. I always new him as just "The Writer/Director". He has truly inspired me to draw. I always wanted to but felt I didn't have the eye for it. The book The Art of Tim Burton is practically my education now.
