The Forgotten and the Foreign#2: Richard Williams "A Christmas Carol"

When I was a kid, this Oscar winning, animated version of Charles Dicken's classic "A Christmas Carol" aired on ABC during the seventies. The style and beauty of it had a huge impact on me as a kid. The scritchy-scratchy lines, the moody color and design. They stopped airing it for years, and I didn't see it again until I found a copy on VHS in the 90's. Master animator Richard Williams directed, and the legendary Chuck Jones produced --in my mind, the definitive adaptation of Dickens story.

Some Old Character Design Stuff

Because of a combination of being ill, busy and having problems with my internet service, I haven't posted in a while. I'll try and post more often if you've been missing my posts. Thought I might post some of my film related work as I haven't posted much of it. Here's a few examples of some of my character design work. Included are some examples from an abandoned all-cg project ILM was working on several years ago. Theres a couple of pieces I did for ILM for the two Mummy movies, and some unused costume concepts for Riddick. Most of this stuff is pretty old, but I still kinda like them.
