I appologise profusely for the crap quality of this image, but as I am not at work at the moment and my scanner has gone to meet Elvis in the great byond, he's dead, deal with it, then the digital camera is the best I can do ATM. Anyways, here is a pic from my sketchbook, I am in the process of figuring out my Candleman story arcs and this is part of my thoughts on paper way of working, hope it doesnt suck too much :)
Geoff rescently gave me a big fat chunk of stuff relating to the old web site, Candlemania.co.uk, in it was this awesome image of an early concept for Queen Nutha Cupartee from Staying in the light, done way back when the origonal idea was for a kinda wacky live action TV show, however, this picture rules, i thought i'de share her with you... btw, the gaping wound in her belly is where they took her organs out to mummify her EW!
As we are all feeling at the moment. For those outside of the circle of Rare, i have been made or am in the process of being made redundant from my job as a concept artist, i am not alone and my feelings are not only for those who are going through this trying time with me but also with the people who I leave behind, some seriously skilled people have had their world shaken and are left feeling pretty insecure and demotivated after the process of the last few months, i wish them all the best, along with hoping that, for me and the people who share my fate, this is the start of something greater and an adventure that with any luck, will end in something better. Onwards and upwards!
