I updated my blog to the latest release of wordpress today (version 2.6.3) and was able to add a really cool plugin for NextGen Gallery. NextGen Gallery allows you to implement and organize galleries and albums on a wordpress site like flickr. I really like NextGen’s implementation and it’s easy to install.

Anyway, with the gallery plugin installed I uploaded the second set of photos from our Gnomon Stop Motion class visit to the Chiodo Bros Studio in Burbank. This set of photos focuses on one of their talented artists, Rick O’Brien, and his amazing painterly work. Rick spent a lot of time with us explaining his texturing and painting methods and concepts – it was great :)

To look at more of Rick’s work, visit his Monument Project and Blog.
