Anacapa Light

watercolor on hot press paper
I booked a trip out to Anacapa Island -- part of the channel islands off the coast of California -- a few weeks ago, and invited an artist friend so we could do some watercolors.  Unfortunately the one day of rain in the past six months was the same day we were out on the island and the squalls kept coming in regularly. Our paints stayed in our packs and I had to do this from a photograph. Still, the islands are an impressive, nearly pristine environment to visit -- and I will return!

Morris Graves Wall of Art

Kevin Turcotte
A photo from the reception held last Saturday at the Morris-Graves Museum of Art in Eureka, where I'm part of a group show, "An Animator's Avocation." The show also features of paintings of fellow DreamWorks animation artists, James Martin, Simon Otto and Fabio Lignini. The show was held on the second floor of the rotunda in the museum and we were each given a separate wall. Thanks to all who made this possible!
