These paintings are for Bert! They're of his characters. I didn't really design them so much as I took a Brigette-y pass over the already existing ideas.

Done in real for real gouache last night at about 1am! I hadn't painted with gouache for about a year (whoa), but it was reeeeeeaaaalllly fun to get back into it. I'd have to say it's about a bajillion times more gratifying than doing something in the computer. Why is that?
In other news, my partner in crime is in Austria now, and I'm probably going to be heading out there in a few weeks too. He gets to go to Paris this weekend...I'm infinitely jealous. But I get to go to the CalArts Char. Anim. OPEN SHOW this weekend, and there's no equivalent to THAT in Paris, for sure. Who else is going?
