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....

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.

Tumblr Radar

Much to my shock, no pun intended, I woke up to find out my latest frog GIF got on the Tumblr Radar. And then my follower amount doubled in half a day!



Feels weird, man...

East, West and All the Rest

I don't update this site as often as I should, especially because I still view this as my main 'website'.

Anyways, this past March I drove cross-country from New Jersey to Los Angeles to work at Animation Domination High-Def after working from home for a month. I'm currently animating on an as of yet unannounced series, so I'll be sure to actually post when that happens because I'm very proud of the work I've done on it.

From January through March I was also a judge for the Northwest Animation Festival in Portland, Oregon. Transmission screened there last year on the opening night alongside Disney's Paperman; a fact I still can't believe myself. Transmission, by the way, now has over 46,200 views on Vimeo...

Those things, on top of my work at Otherworldly Mystics and another part time job, have kept me very busy for the last few months; not to mention I'm still getting settled in LA. So with that, I'll leave you with some frog GIFs I recently made, where I experiment with styles for a possible project:


Should be able to update you soon ;;)
