Some Foster's Work

Here are some held images done for the episode "Make Believe It Or Not". Each of the Foster's characters imagine themselves as something, and a quick still shot was shown on the screen. Craig McCracken wanted them each in a different style from the show.
Manga Wilt as an Evil Robot Overlord, Coco as a T-Rex (Geof Darrow Style), Ed as a Royal baker (Mary Blair Style) This didn't get used and got changed to a Mario Brothers style.), also an image of Goo (Lisa Frank Style) riding Coco. The board for this episode was done by the very talented Kelsey Mann .

Hey Ben!

Thank you very much for your response. It’s always a pleasure to share artwork amongst artists and to know their opinions.
In fact, in kaboomstudio.blogspot.com and www.ka-boom.com.mx you’ll be able to see much more about our projects and portfolio. Each kaboomer’s personal blog is dedicated to our lives, experiences and anecdotes in the comic book industry. We write it more like a diary due to our fans, who enjoy reading about our daily life. Of course, we never leave aside our artistic work. Even though they’re in Spanish, I assure you the most important posts will be translated in English at our official blog.
By the way, we’re organizing a comic convention here in Mexico for next year. In 2003 we did one called UTOPIA, to which artists such as Sergio Aragonés, Dave Thorn, Francois Boucq, Tony Bancroft, Juan Giménez, Mike Kunkel, Carlos Meglia, Stan Sakai and Phil Yeh, amongst others, assisted. We were wondering if you would be interested in coming for next year.
Thank you, again.
Sincerely yours,
Mariana Moreno

Hey! Congrats on the Annie Award nominations!! And thanks again for the nice comments on our blog. Much appreciated. :)

I think the second image, of the explosion and the Coco T-Rex is my favourite in this post.

YO!

Congrats on TWO Annie nominations in TWO different categories!

Thanks Everyone!

Yah, getting nominated for the 3rd year in a row is pretty cool and getting nominated for two seperate catagories is a hell of a thrill!

Tedrex: Not sure who ended up coloring them but Martin Ansolabehere is the art director. I honestly don't know if they use Photoshop but I would asume so. I'm working on the show from Portland until I move back to L.A. in a couple months. Then I'll be in house and have more of a clue.

Mariana-I'd love to go to Mexico, just need to finish my book first!

Congratulations for your book!
Sincerely Yours,
Mariana Moreno
