After working with all those angular character(like doodlez)I decided to pitch something back to a more classical cartoony look .Roundish is definitly my cup of the and I sure miss it .After creating the cast ,a co worker was supposed to layout a scene with my posing .Of course he never did it .After spending so much time on posing it kind of bug me to not having a layout to put them.So I did a temporary BG just for the sake of putting the pose in a context instead of a white sheet of paper .The layout ain't great but at least my posing is out there .The color was done buy a friend of mine Rene Daigle.Thank Dude!!!

Big fan of the show ,I decided to use that retro/flat style just for the fun of it .Saddly ....It wasn't fun at all,lost interest in the project and decided to drop it .
For those who don't get the "word of the day" panel .The pink alien is a villain I found in the Pee-wee world.His name is Zyzzybalubah and you can see him in a episode call "Playhouse in the outer space".Not really proud of that set and might get back to pee-wee one day with a style I will enjoy more .Oh well...

On my way home in the subway ,I had the pleasure to share my trip with this pleasant fellow.For 20 minutes that guy,who at first was reading a magazine ,started to yell at the top of his lung that I was a "F...ing NERD!!!!"Laughing at me and screaming every swear you could imagine ,followed by the word nerd .The funny thing is ,I consider myself border line of the nerdy ,geeky world.I never had a conversation with a friend about who would win between Wolverine and Edward scissorhand but I sure enjoy comic book .
So I could feel myself blushing ,now that my dark secret was out LOL!!.But for everybody else it didn't make any sense because I was sitting calmly listening my walkman .No geeky stuff I swear.So finally he hit my nerve and when I open my mouth to ask him what was his problem ,He stood up and got out of the train ,leaving ,of course ,behind him a huge stain and puddle of piss.
I don't know if there a moral to that story but I am sure I wont use it on my kid to make a point .....
As a french Quebecquers if there one thing I learn to hate like the plague itself is of course translated movies,songs and games.Trust me on that one ,I am still twitching from the last Jim Carey or Robin William movie I saw in french.It just plain awful.Like everything there always exception .Cheech and chong ,Slapshot are part of those exception .I wouldn't trade the Quebecquers version for nothing in the world.
Quebec version of the Flintstones is for me Translation at his best .I don't really care for the original version of the flintstones( in english) but man... ,probably one of the funniest thing I 've ever seen in my life .Anybody who can enjoyed the french version will ,without a doubt,second me on this one .
For me it was such a joy when I discovered the release of the Quebecquers version on the box set. I was happy to think my kids will enjoyed the same version I had when I was kid .Sadly the bubble busted when I bought last week end the fourth season .No Quebecquers version on it .What happened????I know they existed ,I saw them on TV.I really Hope season 5 and 6 won't disappoint me .I am just dying to hear great zazoo call fred "Gros Cave!!!"
Last saturday I went to the premiere of the first 2D animated movie I worked on .It was an awesome time ,and I actually enjoy the movie quite a bit .I still think the first part of the movie is the best when it really focus on the relation between ted and george ,but still really entertaining .Hopefully it won't be my last one.On that pic,you have 4 of the most incredible talent I ever had the chance to meet .Former disney (australia) guys.From top left to down right.Steve Baker ,Mike Mcdougal,Nadine Wagner ,Me and Florian Wagner . Those guys been real friends while I was having though time to adapt from tv to feature .Of course while I 'm at it I would like to thank The Chiasson brothers ,Pierre ,Claude and my mentor Roger for everything they did for me.You guys kick ASS!!!!

I got my first request today ....
I've been ask to post sketches instead of finish stuff .I know everybody do it but for some reason I always feel like my rough aint good enough to be showned.I guess the same way I was scared to have a blog ,it just a matter of breaking the ice.So welcome in my vault were no one ever been ....
Don't try to make sens out of them ,those a really quick doodles done while I am waiting because my computer at work suck and laged non stop.
This is once again the first look of a pitch done at Trapeze.I was told to really used "Shag" as a guideline .
That flat retro style is personally not my cup of the ,but I think it turn out not to bad.
The final show sure do look different now and doing extremely well.
