Lumpus Cabin

Lumpus Cabin, originally uploaded by carol-wyatt.
My inspiration behind the designs on Camp Lazlo were vintage fabrics from the 40s and 50s. The colors were graphic and bold with areas where the white of the fabric peeked through the paint. Almost like a dry brush effect, but more graphic.
I loved the yellow skies in the old Western prints and added that to the Lazlo environment.

While I was still working on Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, I worked late into the night on the Camp Lazlo pilot. Joe Murray drew and animated. I designed and painted. It took a couple of years for the show to go through negotiations and changes before Cartoon Network aired the first episode.
These paintings were some of my favorites from Camp Lazlo.

My TRON Experience

All rights Carol Wyatt

I finally went to see TRON Legacy a few days ago. As much as I hate wearing 3D glasses, this was the first film that I have seen where the film was truly made for the 3D experience. Loved the floating dots separating the indoor from the outdoor residence. What a gorgeous set!

I have always loved painting with contrast and vivid color. This movie looked like a giant scratchboard illustration that had been backlit. 
I am not a gamer and was not interested in the story as much as the aesthetics. I wanted to know where people slept and went to the bathroom. How did all of this amazing technology get made in a world where everything was destroyed over and over again? Were there any fat characters? African American? Did people eat? Were there any children?
It was all pure fantasy, and beautiful. It looked like a lot of fun to work on.

Congratulations to all involved... It is a gorgeous film!

Foster's EXT Day, originally uploaded by carol-wyatt.

This is still one of my favorites!
Mike Moon hired me at Cartoon Network at the beginning of Foster's to develop the look of the series with Dave Dunnet designing BGs. Before we started painting in Illustrator, I had time to paint some fun pre production BGs in gouache. I have a few different times of day of this same background.
