Back in 2010 I did some work for the incredible Charles Pickens of Disney Publishing. These were for the chapter books based on the main character, Tinkerbell. Charles does some amazing, amazing color work and it was hard to follow his lead; he has so much experience. Great guy; one of my favorite art friends. I was mostly responsible for painting the figures (he would send me the pencils) and much of the background elements were already done. I did a few; like the big sunflower on the left of Rosetta, the giant mouse that she rode as well as her and the character riding another mouse in the distance. These elements were placed into a large painted background later. Mostly I painted what are called partials; and Charles would paint everything else; so the art would be done faster and be more consistent. He would roughly tell me whereabouts he wanted the light and he would trust my judgement to light the figures~which I love to do. These were always crazy, up to the minute deadlines; always a rush!

Alex: neither can I! Ha, ha, this will be a banner year for me: I've got so much planned~gonna try to get 5 beautiful illustrations out this year to sell online for next year. Just keep drawing, posting, painting, go to museums, bring some sketch buddies, celebrate art together in this way! And thank you!! KMZ

If I'm in the area I'll try and stop by and say hi at one of the cons.

Thank you, Alex! You might be able to leave a message at Kimberly Dwinell's table at WonderCon. She will be sharing it with another Disney Alumni, Elizabeth W. (Can't remember her last name). Kimberly is publishing a young kid's comic called "Surfside Girls". I will pester her at her booth. All three of us worked at Disney Feature Film back when it was still 2D. I don't have a booth; maybe in the future after I get some prints out. Hope to see you there!~KMZ
