personal update

I finally bit the bullet and began the long and tedious process of converting all of my oversize artwork into digital form. Over the next month or so I should have all of the material organized and uploaded.

Already, I have quite a bit available through a new set of links on the side bar of the main page. They all point to my Picasa web album account, so bear with me as I begin the process of finding a more permanent gallery option. In the meantime, though, feel free to browse in the slide show mode; I've attached captions where appropriate.

Directors:
G. Ivernel
Arthur Qwak

If you appreciate the series of 2D animation French "Hunters Dragons", any adaptation 3D film released next year. The project has just returned to production, the animation will be provided by the studios Mac Guff Ligne (France), LuxAnimation (Luxembourg) and Trixter (Germany), all produced by Futurikon with a budget of 12 million euros, also with as partners France 3 Cinema, RTL TVi, Canal + and TPS. There are Arthur and William Ivernel Qwak to achieve, and he should know that this project is not because a recent pilot nice little 3D was produced in 2001 at Sparx, well before the series.

freelance gallery update

I've added 4 pieces to the gallery, though keep in mind that the first slide is still a work in progress. Once I receive the completed composition I'll swap it in for the existing one.
