hey everyone! here’s something that I just finished that I’ve been working on these past few days. I’m super pleased and proud of how it turned out!

some info about the piece:

  • it’s on a 16x20 wood canvas panel
  • I used glossy varnish to adhere and seal everything
  • the sides are about an inch wide
  • both the sides and back of the piece are painted with black gesso and topped with the glossy varnish

if you’re interested in owning it, you can find it here on my etsy! 

please consider supporting me and my art by reblogging this post so my art can find a home!

James Lopez is a veteran Disney animator (The Lion King, Pocahontas, Paperman) who is trying to raise funding for his primarily hand-drawn short film, Hullabaloo, with hopes of eventually finding a studio to fund a full-length version.

From the film’s IndieGo page:

Hullabaloo is the story of Veronica Daring, a brilliant young scientist who returns home from an elite finishing school to find her father—the eccentric inventor Jonathan Daring—missing without a trace! The only clue left behind points Veronica toward Daring Adventures, an abandoned amusement park used by her father to test his fantastical steam-powered inventions. There she discovers a strange girl named Jules, a fellow inventor who agrees to help Veronica in locating her missing father and discovering the secrets of his work.

In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film’s two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.
