Maira Kalman feature for the New York Times.

I really love this woman’s work… it embodies a lot of the ideas I find interesting. Hopefully one day I will be able to incorporate more of that sense of chance and process into my “finished” work.

For some reason, drawing this fox reminded me of my old videogame days.

I worked at Bioware in Edmonton, Alberta for a few years after graduating from art school. The project was “Jade Empire”, which was a kung fu adventure set in fantasy-ish Ancient China. There were lots of animal spirits, including a fox demon which sparked the memory. I did mostly character stuff (texturing and modelling), including, but not exclusive to:

Hot Babes:

Love Interests (also hot, natch):

Manly Men:

and Innumerable weapons, environment textures, and faceless henchmen:

Couldn’t find a pic of the fox lady though. She had furry boobs!
