Olga and Seymour








Welcome back from the holidays! I hope everyone enjoyed their break. Here are some of the things I worked on...I did some sketching at the airport and some in my Willis book for fun, I painted four more pages of Seymour, and I started some studies on Olga. "Olga" is the second book that I'm working for thesis. The ostrich and her little friend Oliver enjoy the pleasures of the weekend. "Seymour" was about a typical school day (riding the yellow bus, show n tell, recess). I have lots of exciting things planned for Olga and Oliver. First I toyed with the idea of her house being underground, showing the "split earth" view. Everything in the main room is viewable like the pictures of her friends and family, flowers, and of course the Television she can just use the remote. The top two rooms are all reachable....so she can lay her neck down on the mini bed at night. I was thinking about putting little umbrellas on the top view to block out any rainfall. Olga and Oliver also love playing cards in their fort! (That's what I used to do) Let me know what you think so far, thanks!!
