The Illustrators for "The Nalikae Tree"

I love risk in art. 

Each page of "The Nalikae Tree" will be illustrated by a different artist. Here are a few of the storyboards I created to hold everyone's work together. 

Gathering the artists to present the project at Pohchang. 

Counter to the self-centered practice of much studio art, collaboration asks the artists involved to trust and be vulnerable. I find that its always an opportunity for making exciting creative discoveries.

Some of my favorite animated films--Nina Paley's Sita Sings the Blues and Richard Linklater's Wakinglife --represent a collaboration of different artists and/or artistic techniques. These experiments resulted in fantastic and imaginative experiences for the audience. 

Here are a few stills from Sita Sings the Blues, which can be viewed for free online.
