Friday 6 August 2010
I moved to Wellington with some mates. Got a sweet little retail job and signed up for a tonne of lifedrawing and some classical painting lessons at Inverlochy Art School. I made some great friends who accompanied me on drawing excursions to the museum and surrounding environs and we became a regular scourge at many local cafes. Weta Workshop gave me an interview and some really good advice, and looking back, kinda wish I had followed a lot closer, - broaden your portfolio, hone those digital skills! However I continued to bang stories round in my head full of dinosaurs, monsters and adventure. Heaps of these images are making their way into the stories being developed for the comic now.
