Cherry bomb work in progress

This is for my buddy Wil Caligan's Cherry Bomb comic. Not sure when it's slated to be released but I shall keep Y'all posted.
I dont usually talk about my process but I thought it might be useful to someone :) So a bit about the process : I first ruffed out the entire concept on 8.5 x 11 which i didn't post, then i scanned it into PS3 where I dropped in two separate perspective grids on it. the firt being the bg perspective and secondly the perspective of the bike. the reason being is i didn't want the bike to sit exactly parallel to the side walk. yes it's a little more work (but not too much) to get the perspective to turn just a little bit ( correctly) but it's worth it, plus it makes the piece a little more dynamic and draws your eyes to the girl and bike as well.
I then printed out the two different grids and drew the bike on a separate sheet about 6 inches wide. I then printed the bg grid about 4 inches tall and 8 to a page so I could explore different bg ideas. I think it was the fourth thumbnail before i found this bg you see here. then i comp the two together in PS3 and whamo this is what you get.
I hope that was clear and I hope you dig :)

Hi Robin.
As far as design work in Vancouver....the only design job that I know is hiring is at Rainmaker animation. They do direct to dvd mostly but are developing a feature...Not sure which the gig is for.

I know a few of my friends have had luck with some of the video game studios (ex. Propaganda) out here, although Ive never gone that route.

Ill let you know if I hear anything else.

Best of luck.
