COSMOS: A Spacetime Odyssey

Part I: Ancient Mesopotamia

I don’t know how many of you caught this, but I totally had a little segment in last night’s episode of COSMOS, “The Immortals”! It’s about a tremendous drought that destroyed the ancient civilzations of Mesopotamia! FOX approached me about doing this little piece a few months ago and I sprung at the opportunity! If you didn’t know, I am a big fan of SCIENCE and I was so pumped to be a part of this incredible series and to have animated a piece to Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s (my hero!) narration and Ann Druyan’s writing! I am so thankful to Kara Vallow, Brent Woods and Allie Crane for inviting me to take part in this project and being so supportive throughout the production! Also I had an amazing crew to help me create the animation - long-time collaborator Stephane Coedel who was the lead Animator & Compositor, the incredible Stephen Vuillemin who did character animation, and my amazing sister Emily Haidri who produced the spot for us! A real dream job!

Here is a LINK to the full episode if you want to watch (our segment starts around 26:40)!

Hey guys I did a Star Trek poster for Mondo and it’s going on sale today at a random time! I don’t know what time! This is my first poster for Mondo so it’s all an exciting new experience! We’ll see how it goes! I’m told you can follow MondoNews on Twitter to get all the sale info! They are also selling a much cooler poster by Matt Taylor at the same time if you prefer to get that one!

My poster is based on the classic Trek episode “What Are Little Girls Made Of?” which I chose pretty much just because of Sherry Jackson and her amazing duo-tone jumpsuit thing!

Here are some development posters I painted for the Mr. Peabody & Sherman movie like 3 years ago! I’m not totally sure what these were ever used for but they were really fun to make! You can see them in The Art of Mr. Peabody & Sherman book which is AVAILABLE NOW and has lots of really cool pictures in it!

Oh and the Peabodys in these posters were drawn by Craig Kellman!

This is a painting I did to explore the look of the Sky Spire in “Giant Woman” and I also used it later to test out an idea we had for the episode title cards before Rebecca decided to do the laundry hands idea.

The backgrounds for this episode were later beautifully designed & painted by Sam & Elle! Check out a selection of the productions BGs HERE!

This is my favorite episode that I worked on! And it has my favorite song that Rebecca wrote! She even dedicated this live version to me at Comic Con last year!! ^O^

Some location backgrounds for the Powerpuff Girls Danced Pantsed Special on Cartoon Network!

I also had the pleasure of working with my longtime friend Chris Turnham on the Powerpuff Special and he painted a lot of beautiful things like this! This actually marked our first studio work collaboration since we were both working at the same video game studio about 8 years ago!
