Stone Quackers, Lucas Bros, FXX and more

Hey there, sorry I dont update this as often as I do my Tumblr. I've been busy working at ADHD, animating and storyboarding on The Lucas Bros Moving Co as well as animating and coloring a new series of shorts with Evan Borja called OG Sherlock Kush. Both of which, and Stone Quackers (which I worked on last year) will all be airing on January 22nd on FXX, and airing every Thursday after that.

There were already a couple preview nights, on FXX on Jan. 2, and FX on Jan 8, where preview episodes of all 3 aired before their official premiere. I managed to snag some screenshots of my credits from the FX Now app:

There were no on-screen credits for OG, so I just screenshot the title card, for which I did the text and animated the flame. Episode of Lucas and Quackers should be on Hulu the next day after they air, and OG shorts will be up on YouTube. I'll be sure to link to all of them once they're up.

Other than that... got some new projects in mind, and album art to reveal soon. We'll see.

Among Waves

Available now, a new album from Orca Life, featuring artwork by me:

In addition to the album artwork, I also filmed and directed a music video for a track off the album, "Fall In":

Both the album artwork and video are made from a series of video experiments I shot, applied over photographs/video shot by Chris Roberts (Orca Life himself) and edited together. Since Photoshop and After Effects have the same layer mode options, I tried to treat the video exactly as I did the artwork, which for an experiment I think turned out pretty well.

Also featured on the J-Card interior is the "Jesse" logo that I created for Orca Life.

Watch the video, listen to and buy the album. Enjoy.

More Developements

I recently advanced from animator on The Lucas Bros. Moving Co. to storyboard artist. So, that's totally a thing I hopefully I can talk more about in the future...

Also I made album art and a music video that should be out in a few weeks, but again... secret....

Also i'm on Ello now for whatever reason...

Otherwise, have some art I haven't posted here yet:

Reptile Alien Invasion for Ghostshrimp

Recent Developments

Hey there, I don't update this as often as I'd like but here's what I've been up to:

Most recently I created a new identity for Chris Roberts' music pseudonym, Orca Life:

I drew this in pencil first, inked it with a brush pen, and then edited it in Photoshop. The stages can be seen on my Tumblr.

Before that, I laid out the artwork for Rachel Thomasin's new album out on Otherworldly Mystics. Rachel provided the base artwork herself, but I was responsible for the layout and copy for the cover/interior as well as the labels on the tapes and the color choices.

And lastly, some GIFs from a series I'm calling Animals In Shirts; if I'm lucky they'll have me reboot Shirt Tales...


I have more projects in the works but that's all there is to show for now.

I Was Interviewed

I was asked by an author living in Ghana, Comfort Arthur, to do an interview about my work and my influences, it's pretty lengthy but feel free to take a look:

And here is the self-portrait I did for the interview:

Sometimes I have a beard, sometimes I don't. I figured I'd just make both...

This isn't my first interview, I was also recently interviewed for the Oxford Film Festival, but those questions mostly pertain to Transmission.
