storyboarding vertigo scene 1

after reading hans bacher's "dream worlds" i decided to do an exercise, which is strongly recommended there: choose a movie (let it be a good one) and draw it shot for shot. i chose hitchcock's vertigo and began straight from the beginning. here is the first scene, which still has more detail than planned, but then again its an important action scene;
i hope i will be going on faster and less detailed for further scenes ...
anyway it's amazing to see the compositions and storytelling-flow and discover all the little things and maneuvers "hidden" in the pictures ...

back from jordan ...

did a small trip to jordan and spent most of the time in the desert of wadi rum in the middle of nowwhere, which was an absolutely mindblowing experience; peaceful and timeless.
i went there mostly for hiking and exploring ancient petra; not for painting or anything, but i did a few fast sketches along the way, here are some of them
