WOW! How touching and sweet! Your smiles are shining rays of joy right through time, shooting out of my monitor and into my heart! Congratulations to you two. I wish you a rich life together as one.

I’m excited to be going over small-scale proofs of much larger metal prints for an upcoming exhibition of illustrations I did, some alone and some in collaboration with colleagues, for or related to Avatar and Korra between 2003 and 2013. I’ll be posting more information on the exhibition very soon, but for now I can at least say it will be in the greater Boston area. Stay tuned!

Emily Tetri, Korra background painter, being awesome!

A little behind the scenes look of the early stages of Green Lantern the Animated Series.

My eternal gratitude to everyone who helped prove the doubters wrong.

In color correction suites they have these cool scopes and mini monitors that look like something you’d find in a vintage submarine. Usually the patterns that appear on them are indiscernible, but if an image of a face is particularly clear and contrasty a ghostly visage will emerge. Here is such an image appearing in the RGB parade on the waveform monitor of the Book 3 villain.

I drew this at lunch quite a while ago. Apparently I thought a pikmin / lok crossover was a good idea?

Did you know Lauren Montgomery is on Tumblr now? Now you know.

Lauren Montgomery, supervising producer on Korra, is THE BEST.

It has been ages since I’ve had the time and energy to mess around with any digital painting, either on the Cintiq or the iPad. When I was digging around old files last night I came across a barely-started portrait attempt of Korra that I had based on a storyboard drawing of Ki-Hyun Ryu’s. I put a little bit more time into this evening, feeling rather rusty! That said, painting human faces is always a huge challenge for me, no matter how much I’ve been painting. Here is a detail of the work in progress.

One last trip down memory lane for tonight (can you tell I am digging through old files?), this time from January of 2007. This is a personal favorite and it came about in a funny way. They told us we could make some “creator t-shirts” with whatever art we wanted on them and they would sell a limited run on the network website. So I made this. And they said, “Yeah, not that one.” The calligraphy, by S.L. Lee, PhD., is from the Blue Spirit’s wanted poster.

While I’m at it, here is the “Have You Seen My Flying Bison?” poster I made for the ATLA Book 2 episode “Lake Laogai,” with calligraphy by S.L. Lee, PhD, slightly-less way back in May of 2006. Aang looks like an egg with Aang’s face drawn on it.

jedhenry:

Finally found the time to finish these pieces! 

Follow this link to see more print designs.

Kanji explanation:

Image 1: The bottom-left cartouche features the kanji 鳴戸, which is read naruto, meaning ‘whirlpool’. (Note: uzumaki has a similar meaning, translated as ‘maelstrom’.)

The top-right cartouche contains the kanji 古祟翻恵, loosely meaning “An ancient curse becomes a blessing”.

_____________________________________________________

Image 2: The top-left cartouche contains the symbols 龍毬, literally meaning ‘dragon’ and ‘orb’.

The bottom-right cartouche features the kanji 不憩奮励, meaning ‘Never resting, striving higher’.

_____________________________________________________

Image 3: The left cartouche features the kanji 末撓気師, literally meaning “the last bending air master”.

The right cartouche contains the characters 土火気水, which mean ‘earth, fire, air, water’.

I am a big admirer of Jed Henry’s art and all that he has done to sustain and spread the craft of traditional Japanese woodblock printing. I have been meaning to contact him about doing a print for our show for a while now, and also just to tell him how much I love his work. So I am overjoyed that he chose Avatar as the subject for one of his wonderful reinterpretations, the third beautiful image here. So cool! Thanks, Jed! I hope we connect soon.
