No more "Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends".



All fun jobs must come to an end. Now that I've wrapped on the final episode of "Foster's" (the show is ending after 6 seasons), it's time to move on to my next gig... and it's a whopper! I got lucky enough to land a sweet job as a storyboard artist at Dreamworks! I started a few weeks ago, hence the lack of posts, and it's already turning out to be a great place to work. I'm working under head of story Dave Pimentel on the upcoming movie "How to Train Your Dragon" which is pretty much like a dream project for me! I won't be able to show any work for this for quite awhile but I'll have plenty of news soon about my book, "Seaweed and the Cure for Mildew". Exciting times!!!

I believe Foster's marks the end of the Cartoon Network We've all come to love. It was a good show and congrats on the new job.

Hi Ben,

Congrats on the new gig! I'm sure you will knock they're socks off.

I saw that your last posted work was done with a cintiq and Sketchbook Pro. I just got my first Cintiq (wsx20) and have been playing with Sketchbook pro a bit. I was wondering if you have any advice on workflow or program settings that you find to be useful. Thanks for your time.

Peace

Mike

Movie was alright but I would rather have fosters home for imaginary friends. But maybe 1 new episode every year. I'm addicted and still want more.
