I recently headed to Disney Feature Animation to catch up with an old colleague, the incredible Scott Watanabe. The things I saw up there were nothing short of incredible. The studio is developing some fantastic work. Hopefully we'll be able to see some of it one day...
I braved LA's burgeoning public transportation: biking to the Expo line Culver city, transferring to the Red line up to NoHo, then biking the rest of the way. The trip was great! Highly recommended! It took me only a little longer than had I driven, I wasn't consumed by traffic + road rage, and I was even able to sketch a bit.

In the beginning of September, I caught up with the excellent George Fuentes for some hiking and landscape painting up near Mt. Baldy. What a place... so lovely! If you plan on reaching the Saddle, be prepared for a hike much longer than you would think.
I would have posted sooner, but the originals were in route to a lovely home in Portland, OR. Didn't want to spoil the surprise.
Anyone wanna go hiking?

Back in early September, some friends (Alex Preston and Matt Nava) and I took advantage of the Free Tuesdays offered at the Natural History Museum in LA. A good chunk of the day was spend drawing in the new(ish) Dinosaur wing, but there's tons of other great stuff there, like the open air catalog of pottery and artifacts. I'll be heading back soon enough.
