I've been an artist for as long as I can remember. Raised in Canada on a healthy dose of scifi and fantasy films, books, and videogames, I began painting and drawing traditionally, and then got into the computer, making 3d graphics and painting in 2d digitally. Professionally, I've created art for animated features, live action, videogames, TV, ride films and album art for companies like Blur Studio, and Pixar, where I currently work as a Technical Director.

So I've decided to release quarterly updates on how the "Inc" Visual Development Book Project is going. As well as a summary of what's been going on (and the odd tidbit of story), I'll try and release a picture or two from the book with each update.

The current plan (everything is subject to change of course) is for a 120 page book, landscape format, and we've got 50 pieces of artwork so far for a total of approx 30 pages, so we're actually 25% complete! Right now the team will be 8 including myself, with 7 already working on images.

The current format will be 2 parts. Part 1 will be the Narrative portion, which will be short clips of the script mixed with artwork depicting what's happening at each major story beat. Think of it like those old school story books you could buy for movies, where they have images from the movie followed by an abridged version of the story and dialog. Part 2 will be the World of Inc, which will delve in more detail on the characters, robots, environment, creatures, vehicles, weapons, etc, flushing out the world building aspect of the project.

I'm really excited about how things are going, my goal is to see this finished by Christmas 2015, which I think is doable even though all the work on this book is being done in our spare time. There are plenty of sub-projects going as well, like the Inc official facebook page, possibly some model kits of Inc characters and vehicles, etc, but right now our focus is the book.

Next update I'll introduce you to the team, between the bunch of we have a ton of experience in animated features, visual effects films and videogames. I'm really lucky to have so much talent say yes to the project. Each person was picked because they're really good at some aspect that the project needs (like one person is handling the humans, someone else is doing the majority of the vehicle designs, I'm focusing on the environments and robots, etc), and so far the work I've seen from my cohorts is fantastic.

Thanks for your interest!
