3: Your Most Recent Dream
I have a really bad, frustrating habit of dreaming about work, about my day job. It’s really frustrating. I’d rather dream of something far more interesting that I might be able to turn into a story further down the road. But no, I keep dreaming about work.
Not wanting to draw myself putting stickers on objects or ringing up customers, I decided to offer you a very conceptual piece about a product we were selling that existed only in my dream… a turtle bowl. Imagine this design on a bowl. That’s… about it. If only last night had been more eventful.
In cooler news, I’ve decided that I’m going to record the illustration for the DVD cover for Pearls and make the resulting time-lapse goodness a special feature. There was a rather disappointing dearth of behind-the-scenes material for me to put on the previous DVD release, and I really wanted to put more of that kind of thing in there. Most of the pencil tests or rough animation did not survive (simply because I couldn’t save EVERY tests I did to my hard drive; I need space for other things too). But I’m glad I have some new material that I can show people, some things to keep them interested.
