This is a great, short official LEGO “blocumentary” about Angus MacLane and his insane LEGO craft. He was my roommate for a year at RISD and is still a great, close friend of mine. He is an incredible animator and short film director at PIXAR, and on the side he created CubeDudes, which you can see and hear a bit about in this video, or check out in their entirety at this link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/27826007@N05/sets/72157623336762161/
last stand and the iron sky.
Watched all of Legend of Korra last week, Lin is easily my favourite character.
Amie Zhao is easily one of my favorite artists, so I am incredibly honored… Wow. This is beautiful, of course. A wonderful surprise ending to the day.
So spring is almost upon us and Nick decided to wipe the Whiteboard cabinets clean and have us start anew. The Following photo set is the result of The Korra Crew’s wacky imagination… Enjoy!
IT’S FINISHED..!! Well, sorta finished.. ^^ I’ve decided to make a 4-elements combo sort of thing, not exactly as the Avatar, but.. oh well, you’ll see. ^^
ANIMATION IS AWESOOOOOOOOOME!!!!!
Incredible! If only we could harness the power of the internet to fix retakes…
A few highlights from PixelDrip’s “I’m the art show deal with it!” In between meeting a bunch of great artists and fans last night, I took a few photos. It’s amazing to see all the different interpretations of the characters. It was a really great show with a lot of really great talent. Thanks so much to PIxelDrip for organizing and hosting and thanks to all you fans who shared your art and continue to be inspired by the show!
Nice shots, Mike!
Some of the Korra crew at the Korra fan art show last night. What a great event! I really enjoyed all of the art and costumes, and meeting lots of nice, talented folks. Thanks to PixelDrip Gallery for organizing this, and to everyone who sent in their artwork! Very awesome and overwhelming! Love, Bryan
P.S. The event is still going on today, if you can make it. I won’t be able to attend today, as I have a lot of non-fan Korra art to do, but they are still raffling off my Naga print, so I will be there in spirit.
Today someone reblogged something of mine and commented about being discouraged about art sometimes, which reminded me of this.
A family friend’s 6 or 7 year old daughter used to love to draw, but she started to find it frustrating, and so her mom asked me if I could give her daughter any advice. I ended up drawing/writing her this letter. I’d never really intended to show it to other people besides them, but when I saw that post today, I thought maybe it’s relevant!
Sage (and adorable) art advice from Korra BG painter Emily Tetri.
Hot off the presses from ImageWizards.net: Three glossy metal prints of my art with frame-to-edge mounting that I am donating as prizes to PixelDrip Gallery’s “I’m the Art Show, Deal With It” Korra fanart event this weekend at Monk Space. *Ugly office carpet not included.* I’m really looking forward to the event and seeing all the great art and meeting the artists!
Chibi Korra running randomly in an expanse of WHITENESS. IDK. Practice. I still hate lineart…
Well, I for one love your lineart. So simple and charming!

RYU CARICATURES OF KORRA BOOK 3 CREW
KORRA BOOK 3 CREW CARICATURES OF RYU
We have a much bigger in-house crew these days, with full design and storyboard departments like we used to have on Avatar. Ryu couldn’t help himself with all of these new faces to parody and skewer, so he surprised us a few weeks back with a motherload crew caricature (top). Bill Rinaldi and a few folks had the idea to band together and get Ryu back with our own compilation of caricatures of him (bottom).

From Wikipedia: Foley is the reproduction of everyday sound effects which are added in post production to enhance the quality of audio for films, television, video, video games, and radio. These reproduced sounds can be anything from the swishing of clothing and footsteps to squeaky doors and breaking glass. The best foley art is so well integrated into a film that it goes unnoticed by the audience. It helps to create a sense of reality within a scene.
Aran Tanchum, our good friend and longtime foley editor (for approximately the second half of Avatar, and all of Korra), has started a Tumblr blog about the art and process of foley. On the other side of the mic is Vinny Quisetti, the “foley walker,” the person performing the sounds to match the movement in the footage. Unfortunately, Aran can’t show clips from the series, but if you are interested in filmmaking, this is a good look into some techniques and tricks of the trade.
Here is the birthday cake i made for one of our Background Painters Emily Tetri. I didn’t want to put a knife to poor Pabu’s face but he was just too delicious….
Bill made me this cake. The best cake ever.
