I’m thrilled to announce I’ll be working with Warner Brothers on creating a new line of fine art in celebration of acclaimed film maker Chuck Jones.
In a career spanning over 60 years, Jones made more than 300 animated films, winning three Oscars as director and in 1996 an honorary Oscar for Lifetime Achievement. Among the many awards and recognitions, one of those most valued was the honorary life membership from the Directors Guild of America. Chuck Jones.com

Paris, 1930’s. A young boy named Hugo lives in the walls of a train station where he searches day and night for answers about his fathers death…
A little while back I began speaking with my rep in regards to creating a piece for Hugo. We kind of went back and forth about what should be included in the art. By the time we were done we pretty much squeezed the entire movie in one image. Hugo is one of those stories where you just can’t leave anything out of the art.
Director Martin Scorsese made magic of Georges Melies’ career. Winner of 5 Academy Awards, Hugo was a masterpiece.
The original art will be available through Artinsights Gallery soon.

Mirror, Mirror is the first and lighter of two movies based on the tale of Snow White to be released this year. It’s a charming, sweet, albeit flawed little confection, worth seeing if you love inventive production and costume design, but especially if you have a soft spot for the work of director Tarsem Singh..
