I don’t post here all that often anymore.

Aside from steering people towards my demo reel, so here is a big backlog of loose artwork I’ve been doing outside of teaching and paid animation. Random fan art, a CN collab entry, mucking about both traditionally and digitally, some … Continue reading

Doodles on the sign in sheet….

Week two of teaching this quarter. I did some doodles on the sign in sheet for Animation History as the students watched the cartoons I was lecturing about. Senpai! In my reef? I haven’t doodled in a long time.

Daily third place?

Hot Fat Ninja Chick with Robot Arm.

Did you know that I was in a webcomic competition a long time ago? I was one of the sad saps suckered into the Daily Grind Webcomic Ironman Thingy Competition Thing. We were promised fame, fortune, and life long camaraderie. (We weren’t … Continue reading

Guys, I’m currently leading up a decently sized project (3+team members, client: NickDigital (Nickelodeon), tablet game cinematics) while still teaching full time and grad-schoolin’ full time. I’m pretty spent and it’s keeping me from being much more update-y. Here are … Continue reading

Internet. I’m taking a 20th Century Philosophy and Art course, and an Acting course, so I’m not drawing in grad school now. Do you want to see videos of a fat guy acting poorly? What, youtube? Okay, then you don’t need … Continue reading

Grad School Break Time Waster: Avengers Edition 2

Grad School Break Time Waster: Avengers Edition

There were two sketches for this idea, but I’m only uploading the final one. You’ll see in the painting WIP that I elongated the Hulk’s torso a bit. I’ll upload the color version once I’m done monkey-ing with a rough background.

Of all the weeks, of all the days, today I would truly like to yell at the moon with you. I have to be careful now, or this could quickly turn into a real blog.

I’m just putting this here, so I can find it again later.

Every once in a while, I need to regroup. Remember what it is I want to do. Show him my war face. This isn’t the best recording of the song, but the live performance is part of the ritual.

I Slept on it…

After some further thought, I think I need to clarify some things about the last post and the grad school submission attached. It’s not a terrible bit of animation. It’s just trying to do too much in too litle time. … Continue reading
