In Loving Memory of Iwao


Just for the record, Superman isn't supposed to be checking Supergirl out. He's supposed to be more amused by the way she's posing for the camera. He isn't lusting after his younger cousin...I swear.

This PURELY platonic post is dedicated to Iwao Takamoto who passed earlier today. He was a genuinely kind and well-intentioned person as well as an artistic genius. He created Scooby Doo for Heaven's sake. He will be truly missed.

Hmmm I am not sure about this one, I think he might be a pervert, great drawing non the less.

Oh... I've found you through Eric Kanneteh's blog and it has been a grateful surprise. I love your style, and the way you use to draw girls... I am a storyboard artist from Spain and if I don't understand wrong... you also work drawing storyboards for the Warner Bros Studio, Right? What are you dong now?
Well, I will add your site to my links. I will visit frequently in the future.
Saludos!

Don't worry. Superman doesn't look as if he's checking Supergirl out. I actually thought his gaze was directed more at the audience.

Thanks everyone! You are correct Antonio. I was working at warner bros storyboarding and directing for them for a few years. Now I'm working on Avatar at Nickelodeon.
