OSCARS_HEROES

I was approached by the Academy to Direct an animation piece for the past OSCARS night to celebrate the HERO in Cinema. Unfortunately, at the very last minute, they decided NOT to do animation and use life action footage instead, but they ended up using my idea. Here is an unfinished clip of what could have been a nice finished animated piece.

Thanks to dear friend Vaughan Ling for that sick Batman's location.

Truly yours,

Alberto Mielgo

PHILIPPINES RELIEF


I'm organizing an Art Show about a recent Bicycle trip I did from San Francisco to Los Angeles.  I´m not selling anything there,  I´ll just share the experience , an excuse to get people together . I wouldn't show any of my paintings or art work, I'll show the photos I took on the trip. All proceeds will go to typhoon haiyan relief. 
Provably because I was close to the same ocean , provably also because the news were all about Typhoon Haiyan during those 6 days.

SO, If you are in Los Angeles, come.

M

Growth of the world economy has weakened considerably during 2012 and is expected to remain subdued in the coming two years. The global economy is expected to grow at 2.4 per cent in 2013 and 3.2 per cent in 2014 a significant downgrade from the UN’s forecast of half a year ago. SO I paint a naked Girl.

ANNIE AWARDS

As many of you already know I won yesterday the ANNIE AWARD for "Best Art Direction in an Animated Television/Broadcast Production" for Tron Uprising. Such an honor and a very BIG deal for me, for a number of reasons. I heard the speech was funny, so I´ll post it as soon as I have it here.
Thanks for all the supporters of the show, thanks for following it and thanks for believing in the project.
You can watch it on i-tunes.

Annie Awards nomination

I´ve been nominated for an Annie Award for "Best Production Design in an Animated Television/Broadcast Production" for Tron Uprising!

A nomination it´s for me a VERY big deal for a number of reasons. I´m very happy and grateful and ego leaks all over. BUT, wait a minute, this wouldn´t be possible without the amazing team that I´ve been lucky to work with.

Thanks ALL for suffering me
.
We've been using as much paintings as possibly we could and choose the most graphic treatment for characters andvehicles. Because we love 2D.

We've seen this shot very much on the series .  This is one of my earliest works for Tron.

Today 5th NOVEMBER Opening.

Each painting is possible thanks to very special people,places and specific circumstances.
This solo exhibition tells the story of my last 3-4 years in painting, but it is mostly a tribute and my way to say thank you to all my models and places that for some reason move me in to one or another direction.
