Mac George site...incredible graphic art

The entire time I've been lucky enough to be working at Disney----there's been only a few artists I would call absolutely extraordinary. Mac is at the top of this list with Glen Keane and a few others. The worst part is...he's about the nicest guy you could ever meet.

Look and enjoy!!!

The first retrospective fully dedicated to the drawings of Gustav Klimt (1862–1918)

The drawings of Gustav Klimt (1862–1918)

I haven't gone yet to this myself, but a friend has---beautiful very sensitive drawings. Oh, and its actually opposed to my last post on Klimt!!!!

Having Fun (DAMMIT) .....or a few diddies I did in James Paick's class

Misc Doodles (huh?)

The Temple of Liger (James' Gathering Card assignment)

Antihistamine ground support troops. Administering antihistamine spray on half-tracks to large snouts dripping snot, while giant pollens attack. Its a plausible story....

These are all a few pieces that I did in James Paick's Environmental design class at Concept Design Academy in Pasadena. The main thrust of the class tends to be sci-fi oriented and post-apocapolyptic. My challenge for myself, was to try to be more light hearted about it (most of the class is very game-centric, as opposed to what we do here at Disney---which is always about charm and appeal---NO MATTER WHAT the subject matter). If you want to do "Sucker Punch" the animated series, then we're not the studio for you. Note quite sure if I was successful, but I did have fun. James is a terrific painter and very direct in his painting and also teaching. I highly recommend taking from him!!
