Desert






I didn't know I'd be back that quick..but here I am. I'm on a roll..2009 is my year! I hope I spelled the title of this posting right. It's supposed to be the word for an expansive stretch of land that receives very little precipitation, and not the delicious treat you eat after your dinner. Never know if it's one "S" or two. Anyways, I could look it up but...well, I just won't. These are some backgrounds I did recently for an animation project called "Fraidy Bat". All these images are copyright 2009, Our Children's Friend (All Rights reserved), so don't get any big ideas. Big thanks to Adrian Ropp for trusting me with this assignment! See you guys in blog-land again real soon.

Very nice layouts! They remind me of a Chuck Jones short!
Oh, and here's a handy memory trick: the treat ("dessert") has two s's because you want more. The wasteland ("desert") has one s because it gets little water... and the honeybee ("deseret") has two e's because... uh... I'm not sure why...
