Foster's Home...

While we were all on hiatus from Fairly Oddparents last year, I had the privilege of working on a couple episodes of Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends. What a treat for me! Here are some of the characters I did during that time.

Tango Music & Parlor Guitars

I love old turn-of-the-century American parlor guitars.... my favorite guitar design. When I was asked to design some Tango musicians recently, I gave them... what else? It may have nothing to do with authentic tango music instrument selection, but what the hey? I knew they would be on screen for 6 frames anyway, and you gotta have some fun! I figured I couldn't get away with giving them ukuleles...

Cosmo, Preggers!

This is also from the "Fairly Odd Baby" episode. Some drawings to guide the animators, as they laid out the sequence where a pregnant Cosmo dances joyously through a bucolic landscape, celebrating his impending

Unfortunately the animation of this sequence was really disappointing, and what should have been a very funny animated segment blows by almost before you have time to notice it. That's what happens when you export art to the lowest bidder.

Well, Here I am back on FOP (The Fairly Oddparents), and my first assignment when I got back last June was to develop this character that was to be introduced in the season premiere. Cosmo & Wanda were slated to (gasp!) have a baby, and of course the details were all tightly kept under lock and key. Who was having a baby?... is it a boy or girl??... what will it's name be???...

Well, as of last night, the cat is officially out of the bag. Our season premiere, entitled "Fairly Odd Baby" aired, and Baby Poof (a boy), has been introduced to the Nickelodeon viewing world with enormous success!

This was not only my first assignment when I came back to Nick, but also my introduction to drawing on the Cintiq! Here are a few exploration pages- the earliest development of baby Poof. I hope you like 'em!
