Final 2-D design
Final 2-D interior design
Exterior boat sketch
Early interior sketches
Tim's Boat was the first set I designed on Cloudy 2. Was a lot of fun
but very challenging. I wanted it to come across as believable,
at the same time fun like a big toy.
The directors basically pitched it as an extension to Tim's
tackle shop in the first movie.

Sideview. Characters designed by Dave Bleich

Early concept art. Exploring shape.
The Breakfast Bog was a challenging set to design. In order to get to the final, we went through several sketches to figure out how best to make it work and look good for the camera.
In an earlier version of the movie, Flint decorated his cubicle with his classic tron-like paint. Everyone else's cubicle would've been the shiny clean surfacing you see at the top. The first cube made it in the movie but it got a lot smaller and with even less stuff inside.

These are the remainder of the onscreen shots I painted for the Chester's Office Cheesespiders taking
over the world scene for Cloudy 2. Hope you enjoy them!

In one version of Cloudy 2, Chester showed Flint what would happen if the Cheesespiders attacked the Old North and South Churches. Poor Paul Revere statue never stood a chance.

When I originally pitched the idea for Flint's Laptop to the directors, I had Inspector Gadget in mind, so I went a little crazy. It was toned down a bit, as you can see in the final design, but still lots of fun. If you look close you may see some familiar technology decorated in Flint's tron-line decor.

Thumbs ideas combined into one. Correcting scale
After Cheesespiders attack.
One of the things I liked so much about working on Cloudy 2 was the freedom of caricaturing real life subjects and taking it as far as I possibly could.
These did not make it into the movie, but it did set the tone for other similar illustrations that did.

In no special order, these are some of the illustrations I did for Simon and Schusters books. Flint Lockwood the greatest inventor of all time and Flint Lockwood Saves the world again. Quality and speed was key, as I was working on Cloudy 2 at the same time. I will post work for that project just after its Sept 27th release date. Thanks so much for visiting.
Here are a couple of sketches for the illustrations of the book. I added these to the blog just in case anyone is curious about my process.
