First and Last Steps
Here is an example again of the very first and very last step in the process of how I create product. In this case a snow globe. In previous posts I’ve talked about how important the very first initial sketch or “thumbnail” is to my process of drawing. It literally is how you capture the creative spark that happens. One minute there is a blank page, the next it’s full of ideas. Here was my “thumbnail” sketch for a 101 Dalmatians snow globe a did a few years ago. This initial stage is not the time to worry about characters being “on model” or not. This is where you find the “idea”. Maybe I learned this from my years spent in animation, but you always start with a rough drawing. When I do go back to “clean-up” my drawings, put them on model and create character turns for the sculptors to follow, I always try to stay close to my original vision. I think it comes across in the final product. The original drawing may be rough, but everything you need is there. Worry about making it pretty later.
One. Do not promise when you’re happy.
Two. When you are angry, do not respond.
Three. Do not decide when you’re sad.

I want one of those marriages where they’ve been married 20 years but are still crazy in love and still cuddle on the couch and kiss a lot. I want those kind of marriages that make my kids nauseous because how in love their parents are.
