From the Vaults: Jae H. Kim
While at CalArts, I was surrounded by countless, incredibly talented artists. Jae Kim was amongst the best. These two pieces represent a couple of doodles his did while sitting in my cubicle discussing a story outline for his freshmen film (ca.1995). It's important for me to note that the dragon was inspired by Mike Mitchell, our life drawing teacher, who brought in a slew of development work he had done. One of his pieces featured a dragon and Jae was compelled to try and reproduce the drama of Mike's incredible rendering.
